Canon Eos 6D
Yongnuo controller and two transceivers *only using one right now*
The flash, when I test on the transceiver, works. When I test on the controller, it doesn't. When I hit the shutter....it doesn't. Yes, they are on the same channel. Tried all three channels, honestly. I've adjusted all settings on the camera, the controller and the flash. But I can't make the shutter trigger. I've reset the controller to make sure I didn't mess up the settings there. I just can't get them to talk.
Any suggestions? I am honestly getting to my wits end here.
I don't have a Canon camera, but I ran into this exact issue a couple of weeks ago with my Nikon. I test the button on the transmitter: Perfect. But, will not fire when the shutter did. It turns out that I had accidentally turned off the flash (I still am not sure how I pulled it off, because it required hitting a button and spinning a dial... I guess I need a fidget spinner or something). I replaced batteries in everything, and I finally started poking around in menus and spinning dials, and accidentally found the issue. Check your manual for 'shortcuts with the dial/buttons'... As you know, your 6D is a pretty complex beast, and you may have 'bumped' something.
Good luck getting that figured out!
