    Question How do I get off camera flash to work?

    I googled, checked the manual, etc and can't find the answer, so I'm hoping someone here can help.

    Flash unit is Powerextra DF-400
    Xit XTSCN off camera hotshoe flash cord.


    I tried manual, ttl and auto. Nothing's working

    Flash does work when mounted on camera, but not when mounted via hotshoe cord

    I'm trying to figure out why this does not work, or if I just purchased a defective cord.
