V6 forgets flash profile

I'm setting up a pair of V6 units with a Nikon D5100 and an SB-600. As I change the brightness level on the TX unit, I can see that the RX unit changes to match it, so I have wireless communication.

The problem is that the flash almost always fires at full brightness. I've narrowed down the problem to this: After I turn the RX unit off and on, it correctly displays "SB-600," but in fact it has forgotten the profile, and I have to re-select it.

I started with firmware 1.0.182 and just updated to 1.1.004. The problem is the same with both versions.

Can you help? Is there a workaround?



  • Hello Mitch_i

    May I help?

    We inspected the V6 with SB-600 for your mentioned problem. The V6 doesn't seems to adjust the power output after switching off and on. Our engineering team has fixed this bug and that will include in the next firmware update.

    If you have any comment, just let me know.

    All the best!
