Go into the Live View Settings menu (red tab no.4) and turn Silent Shooting off. Then the flash will fire. For some reason silent shooting is not compatible with 3rd party speedlites.

The reason is because the camera doesn't detect non E-TTL flashes mounted on the hot shoe. –  Michael Clark Feb 11 '14 at 21:38
