PocketWizard Plus III issue

p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · PocketWizard Plus III issue

I have a few Plus III's and every once and awhile i'll have them stop firing from the hotshoe, usually when the camera is vertical on a camera stand. The Wizard will fire when the button is pressed on the trigger every time, but I usually have to pull the Wizard on and off a few times to get it to work again (it was tightened down on the hot-shoe to begin with). I just in the last week got fed up and pulled the offending Wizard out of circulation to see if it was just the one. Any other ideas on what it could be?

When you say vertical you are referring to the camera turn sideways to portrait view and the PC unit is hang sideways from the hotshoe. If so it could be a bad connection between the hot shoe and the unit.might be wise ti use a flash bracket for the heavy pw3 or use the smaller mini ttl1 unit which is what I do along with a ac-1 zone controller they can be setup for non ttl1 use and controller the pw3s.
