Thread: Nissin Di866 mk II cannot fire

  1. #1

    Default Nissin Di866 mk II cannot fire

    my Nissin Di866 decided to go on holiday just before the CNY >_<

    The current status of the flash:
    1) Can be powered on.
    2) Camera could control the flash
    3) Zoom is working
    4) Sub flash is working

    Problem:
    1) Cannot test fire the flash, when I press the "pilot", the AF assist light will blink 2 short, 1 long, together with beep sound

    I have tried:
    1) Changing batteries (with a set of fully charged)
    2) Shut down the flash for whole day
    3) Transfer the flash on another camera

    Have anyone encountered similar issue before? Thanks

    I recall setting camera to AV and shutter fixed at 1/250 when this happened after a few consecutive flashes before the 866mk2 died on me..

    previously was using the flash only for macro at TTL mode with average shutter speed between 1/80-1/160.

    Mine pretty much the same thing happened. As I was using the sub flash, I did not notice my main flash die until I notice background looks much darker...I was shooting quite happily for the earlier 15mins and show no sign of going down...

    If you are not for HSS, may be YN-565 is another optional choice.

    so consecutive bursting on shutter speeds > 1/160 is not recommended, esp if TTL dictates that flash power needs to be higher in order to expose the frame correctly?

    I can't say yes, the day it dies it was at night...so shutter speed is still below x-sync...

    I think only can say both of us are just "lucky"

    I want original also, but Nissin is the only one comes with sub-flash and mutli-burst

    Poor batch?

    My mk1 also had problems ..after several high powered consecutive flashes, the overheat symbol appeared. And subsequently after that, overheated just with <10 normal flashes that had few seconds in between them. Was given a replacement set but the TTL was no longer giving correct exposures.

    Hope this time, it will not be the same experience.
