Double check that the 430EX is set to Manual and On-camera modes, and not to ETTL or Slave, and that the Auto Power Off (Sleep) is disabled.

Switch the 580 and 430 to narrow your trouble shooting search.

I do have the flash set to Manual and not on slave but what do you mean by on camera?

"On camera" = not "Slave." Which you've checked, so that's not it.

Did switching the unit around show any thing? Make sure the pocket wizards are on the same channel.
