Flash ttl cord problem

Have now just got my ttl cord to fit on my Nikon D7000 and Nissin di 622 mark ii flashgun which is in a Hama flash bracket..I've connected both ends to camera hotshoe and flash and the result is...nothing. It's not showing any signs of life. Is it a cord that doesn't work or am I missing something? Doh!

Does the flash work on the hotshoe of the camera?.......If so I'd have thought the cord was either defective or of the wrong type.

The flash works fine on the hotshoe...guess it's a 'return to Amazon' job then. Looks like I shall just have to use it on top of the camera for my niece's wedding in a few days.

Nissin must be on the cord, not the flash bracket I would think.

Flash cable contacts could be shorting out on flash bracket. Try nissin only on cable without flash bracket.

Why are you connecting both ends to the camera shoe.

stupid idea but check they are both in the right way round - especially the flash!!

To the hotshoe (on camera)...and the flashgun (on the flash bracket).

If the flash works fine on the camera, then the lead could be faulty.
