Help: My On Camera Flash Not Going off all the time on my 645Z


Active member
I am using a Yongnuo YN560lll Flash on my Z and the flash does NOT trigger all the time. I did a Baptism yesterday for my grandson and I normally use the TTL cord that goes from camera hot shoe to my bracket. The same problem happened with the TTL cord and I tried just to put the flash on the hot shoe and the same thing happened.
I shoot in Manual Flash and Manual on the camera( I don't shoot TTL)
I have used the same flash before when I had the 645D and I don't recall having this problem. I did not have the D that long.
I kept removing the flash from the hot shoe thinking it could be a bad connection....But it still happened.
It did not happen all the time. I can't seem to figure out where the problem could be.
Has anyone had this similar experience or Can you Recommend something?
Thank you and I appreciate it
P.S. I use 1/125 sec and recycle time I wait for. Thanks
