When the flash was mounted and power on, would the flash icon on LCD/EVF showed it was enabled?

The GX7 seems to recognise there is a flash connected as the red flash signal shows when a photo is taken. Is there anything else to show the flash trigger is recognised? I am using the mechanical shutter. I've tried manual and priority modes on the camera.

I did get the flash to fire a couple of times when taking a photo. Not sure it was anything I did. The flash fired as I pressed the shutter release but before the photo was actually taken though like it was not synchronised at all and hence the photo was dark and received no light from the flash.

Is this a fundamental incompatibility with this model? Or a faulty trigger/camera?
