How to trigger a off-camera flash with built in flash on the A6400

I applogize if this has been asked before, I can't seem to find an answer with the search function.

I just switched from the A-mount (A77) to the E-mount because of the video capabilities. I have a pair of off-camera flash that use with the A77, and I simply use the built in flash to trigger them and it worked well. When I switched to the A6400, I realized that I can still get the off-camera flashes to fire with the built in flash, but I was not able to get a bright picture like I did with the A77, all photos turn out dark as if there were no flashes at all. I'm not very experienced with flash, am I doing something wrong here?

Thanks in advance!
