2800 with the new sony H9

I bought a sony H9 as a kit on ebay, and this flash came with it. I cannot sem to get the flash to work with the camera, at least not consistently. It has worked a few times, but not others. And yes, the "ready lamp" showed it as ready to use. Any ideas? Also, what is the relationship of the flash, and the unit it connects to? Thanks!

Flash problems

As you haven't said which shooting mode the problem occurs under (e.g. Auto, Scene etc) I can only suggest that you try different shooting modes to gain access to changing the Flash settings. Hope this helps.
