HVL-F43AM: How to get green lamp (good exposure)?

Good day!

I just got my first external flash, read the manual and tried it for few hours. I got decent and right exposure (well for me at least) and it really looks good. But I have a question, while I do get a decent result I can't get the green lamp for proper exposure. My setting is set on TTL / Auto Zoom / F2.8 - 4.5 and ISO 100 - 400 even in very high ISO I get EV -2.0.

Should the green lamp be available before pressing the shutter button? Any inputs around? Thank you.
