Olympus - Issues with Sea&Sea Strobe and Olympus TG4

Lights, Strobes, and Lighting Technique - Wetpixel :: Underwater Photography Forums - wetpixel.com
Hi all,

 

I bought about a month ago a Sea&Sea YS-D2 strobe to give of punch to my Olympus TG4 camera. It used to work fine until recently.

 

For some reason it seems that the strobe and the camera aren't sync anymore... when I take pictures on DS-TTL or Manual they are either completely dark/black, if I switch to Manual with pre-flash they are the opposite: completely white/super overexposed. Please note the strobe fires.

 

I checked already and I am not on "Slave TTL" (dark blue light) but on DS-TTL (light blue light). I also reset my camera to factory default settings at least 10 times.

 

When I try the camera alone it works fine, and when I connect it to another strobe it works (I tried with a INON set 240).

I tried to connect the YS-D2 to another camera (a SONY), and when set on DS-TTL or Manual the same problem occurs, nevertheless when set on Manual with pre-flash it works.

 

I already did some research online and ask a few people but sadly nothing worked, so that a bit a cry for help

I am staying in a very remote location so any suggestions will be more than welcome (i don't want to go to Singapore just to get it checked ...).

 

Has anyone seen/heard about something like this before ?
