Works with the Yongnuo YN560-TX II and a Yongnuo YN560-IV Speedlite?
Asked by: Adorna
Unfortunately no, it is not compatible with the YN560-TX II controller. Since it is a TTL flash, it would be recommended to use the TTL controller instead: B&H # YOYN622CTX MFR # YN-622C-TX https://bhpho.to/3tcRIr1

Could "no-name" batteries be the reason the flash won't fire? The LCD lights up, the LED lights work fine and the flash communicates with my camera...but the flash doesn't fire, not even when I press the "test" button (which is lit up red and ready to go). Should I try a better grade of batteries?
Asked by: Sean
You can try duracell batteries but I don't think that is the issue if the all the lights are on. You may have a defective flash.
