Nikon: Lost all camera control when attempting to use PW FlexTT5

I've tried to search for people with similar problems on google but to no avail.

I'm just trying out a FlexTT5 with my Nikon D700 to control my Einstein strobe, the manual triggering seems to work fine using the test button.  However, whenever I put the FlexTT5 on my D700 all my exposure control goes away.  When I press the shutter, my lens hunts, but won't actually exspose a shot either (going to manual focus won't allow the shutter to release either).

The exposure mode is Manual, and everything works fine before I put the TT5 on.  The little flash icon flashes though when I press the shutter.

Any ideas what could be going on
