have you cleaned the contacts on camera?

Sorry if you have already tried this but I haven't time to read your whole post but I had a similar problem. With my A700 and 5600 flashes.

Either I would get full power blast or underexposed shots. I eventually got a piece of thick card and I pushed the edge of it up and down the groove for the flash contacts on the camera hot shoe.

After a few seconds cleaning the build up of grime on the hot shoe pins was removed and my flashes worked perfectly again!
