I have been using an infra red trigger (interfit) to set off 2 500 flash heads. I have taken about 300 shots with this method, and suddenly the set up failed. I've checked everything from batteries to flash cells, which still fire with the internal flash of my Nikon f50 (film SLR). I am wondering if I have a faulty transmitter.
Unfortunately I am wanting to use my Nikon Coolpix 5700(digital)with the lights tomorrow, but am finding that the inbuilt flash does not set off the flash. I have a synch cord that I have previously used with the f50 but am concerned about using it on the coolpix. Has anyone any suggestions for other sync methods with the Nikon Coolpix, before I fork out any more? Any advice very welcome. (PS this question may have been asked 1000s xs but search wasn't much help.Sorry if that's the case!)

A simple way to check an IR transmitter is to look at it through a camera or camcorder (using the LCD viewfinder, of course). You can see the light flashing.
Well, I didn't know that! Thanks, I'll give it a try.
There's no action at all in the transmitter, even the red ready lamp isn't switching off. Back to square one I suppose.
