I bought a pair of FLashQ wireless radio triggers for my Nikon D700 and SB-28. I can get the flash to fire by pressing the button on the receiver and the trigger connected to the SB-28. It will not flash when I press the shutter on the D700. What setting(s) do I need to have enabled on the camera to fire the flash when I take a shot? I have tried multiple setting in the bracketing/flash menu. I just cannot get it to work.

    \$\begingroup\$ Silly question: are you sure it's not in the hotshoe backwards, and that it's seated all the way in place? I love those little triggers, but they're kind of fiddly. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Sep 28, 2016 at 1:03
  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks for the reply. The trigger on the camera was seated the wrong way. The instruction manual for the FlashQ triggers was kinda lacking so I just went on intuition on how to place the transmitter on the D700 hot shoe. Thanks again. \$\endgroup\$
