Cactus V2S LED Indicator is blinking but not triggering Flash

Hi! I just want to ask you bout my problem with the Cactus V2s Receiver that I have. See, I have 2 receiver and transmitter. But one transmitter seems not working.

I already ruled out some of the probable causes:

1. It's not the Channel Setup
Both receiver I set to channel 1 and the back of the transmitter I also set to channel 1 (at the back of the transmitter, I set Switch 1 to "1" and Switch 2 to "2", but only 1 Receiver is working. I first put my first receiver to see if it will work in my SB600 and it's working. I then detach the receiver that is working and tried out the other receiver. But when the other Receiver with the same channel set-up was put, the flash is not firing (although the red LED incator is ligting up as it was triggered. I tried all channel set-up but still I cannot put the other receiver to work.

2. It's not the battery
I tried to switch batteries between the receiver that is working and the receiver that is not working. With the same channel set-up between the two Receivers and the transmitters but only the one receiver is working (same receiver that is not working I pointed out on item#1)

I'm really running out of ideas how is it possible to fire the two flashes using the two receivers. I really really would appreciate it if you can help me with regards to this issue.

SOURCE: SB800 firing but not syncing??

hi, i had this problem also but found a way around it . what is happening, is that the sb800 preflashes when you shoot and triggers any external flash heads a fraction of a second just before the camera takes the picture. you see the lights being trigered but it the light doesn't register on camera. ( preflasing asseses the amount of light needed for the correct exposure and is a feature on newer models of flashes ). what you can do to avoid this problem is to either use a radio trigger and slave, or set your flash to su-4 mode ,which cancels the preflashing. if you press the select button on the flash .you go into the menu \ scroll up and down till you reach the icon of two flash heads . press the select again and change from " off " to su-4 .that will cancel the preflashing and your other lights will be in sync with your camera . if you get confused go to page 76 in the sb800 manual it explains everything there / hope this was helpful. good luck charles yacoub

SOURCE: My SB600 seldom firing when

If you are firing the flash manually it's giving full burst each time and the battery needs to pick up the charge from the bottom. So just numbers her for an example with a full set of batteries you manually flash, first burst takes 5 seconds to charge flash again it'll take 10 seconds, if you flash it again before that 10 seconds it'll now take 20 seconds and if you push that button again it might misfire because it just can't get the power up high enough to fire it. The flash isn't a studio strobe which is plugged into an outlet, you are working with battery power and each time you flash those batteries are under a huge load and each time you fire you kill them a little more I'm surprised you are getting 30 flashes from those batteries. My guess at full power you are going to start having problems after about 12 to 15 flash bursts and it's a rapid down hill drop in performance from then on. If you took those batteries out of the flash after that series of 30 flashes I'll bet they are hot. What you can do to help is set the system up with Nikon's wireless transmitter and utilize the new i-TTL system then you are taking performance.

My device a red blinking light with a dark screen.

The red blinking light can mean a couple of things. First, It could mean that you have a message. If that is not the case, you caould have on the 'LED Coverage Indicator'. The LED Coverage Indicator tells you by having the top light flash eather Green or Red depending on coverage. If you are in a place that has good coverage it wil flash Green but if you have little or no coverage the LED will flash Red. To check if you have this setting enabled, first go to "OPTIONS" on the phone in the full menu. Once there, go to "SCREEN AND KEYBOARD". Click on 'SCREEN AND KEYBOARD" and scroll down will you see the option that says "LED COVERAGE INDICATOR". Click on that and switch it to OFF if it is not already there. Then click the back bottton and click SAVE. That should work. If it doesnt, I would call your phone carrier and ask them.

How do i reset the bios password

How to recover your forgotten laptop BIOS password? There are 3 methods, each method has its strength and weakness but I am going to talk about the 2 easy methods that works across the board for everyone. Here they are:
Method 1 – Remove BatteryFor desktop user, open up your computer casing and look for the battery. Remove the battery for approximately 5 minutes (maybe longer, depending on the motherboard) and slot it back. By removing the battery and deprive the motherboard’s flash memory of power supply, you are essentially resetting the settings back to default when the existing data in BIOS are cleared.

laptop_battery_desktop_bios_remove_reset.jpgThis method works well for desktop, however this is not practical for laptop user unless the warranty expired long time ago. This method might or not not work, it depends on the type of motherboard.
Method 2 – Reset CMOS With SoftwarePC CMOS Cleaner is the best CMOS password reset software, it works setting the BIOS to the default state or revealing the password.
reset_bios_cmos_password_motherboard_remove.jpgreset_bios_cmos_password_motherboard_remove2.jpgPC CMOS Cleaner is an easy-to-use tool to recover, delete, decode and display the superior passwords stored in BIOS whatever the brand is. Most types of BIOS are supported. It’s an bootable CD that runs on x86 and x86_64 computers. No need to pay expensive fees to experts. It’s a useful tool for users to get their lost BIOS password back, or clean passwords from an old computer bought from others.
  • Support all x86, x86_64 Personal Computers.
  • Support most BIOS, such as: AWARD, AMI, Compaq, Phoenix, Samsung, IBM, Compaq, DTK, Thinkpad, Sony, Toshiba and so on.
  • Display the superior passwords of the BIOS .
  • Remove BIOS password(will set the BIOS to default status, need reset date).
  • Set the BIOS to default state
