Re: E-shutter?

I have an XPro-O. It works fine my GX7.

Check that the XPro-O is seated fully forward in the GX7's flash hotshoe so that all the pins on the foot are hitting all the contacts on the hotshoe. Make sure the flash hotshoe is clean and unobstructed.

Check that the AD200 and XPro-O are set to the same channel and that if the C.Fn ID is being used, that it also matches between the two units.

If the AD200 and XPro-O are within 1m of each other, set the C.Fn DIST to 0-30m, if it's set on the default of 1-100m.

Also make sure that on the GX7 you have not turned on any wireless flash modes. The Godox 2.4 GHz radio system is NOT the Olympus/Panasonic "smart" optical RC system, which is what those wireless flash settings are for.
