Grrrr, ready to throw something out the window

Vent time!

So, I got this lighting setup: flash stand, umbrella bracket and umbrella, two universal translators, and a PC sync cord. The first time I ordered the wrong cord. Got the right cord, or so I thought, in the mail. It connects the universal translators but the flash doesn't fire. I'm sooooo frustrated right now! I've tried everything!

This lighting thing ought to be easier. Lighting for Dummies, anyone??!!

Thanks for letting me vent! :-O

Boo!!! I hope you can get it figured out soon. That's so darn frustrating!

Sorry you are having a rough go. I have every confidence you'll get it worked out though.

Is there a technical support phone number for the place from where you ordered the equipment? Or local camera store? Might be a good idea to check for that kind of thing. It could turn out to be something simple, something often seen, that they can help you out with over the phone.

Best of luck!

The equipment was from a few different vendors, not a kit. But the flash cord came from FlashZebra and apparently their customer service is first-rate, so I will probably try emailing them. Between that and DH, who's a whiz at figuring things out, hopefully we'll get it working!!
