I have been using the transmitter X1c with the Godox RS600P flash without any issues, but I am suddenly unable to go any lower than 1/32. I have rechecked the manual for the RS600P and it says in there the flash has a range of 1/1 to 1/32 which would make a lot of sense if had I not have been using the flash (with the trigger) for a power range of 1/1 to 1/128...

Any idea how to fix this so it works again all the way from 1/1 to 1/128???

I had also rechecked the configuration of the Godox X1c, and everything seems to be configured correctly. So why now after more than a year the flash won't go under 1/32.... arggggg

the trigger can only set the levels that the RS600p can handle so only 1/1 to 1/32 can be used

Have you updated the x1c firmware since the last time you used the 600? If so perhaps a year ago the firmware allowed you to set any value you wanted but counted on the flash to do only what it could do. Now it talks to the 600 and honors it's min/max values? Just a guess though...

Thanks, but the thing is that I have been able to use the full power range from 1/1 to 1/128 all along for over a year and it just stop happening two days ago and now it only goes from 1/1 to 1/32...

I have not updated the firmware, it actually happened during a session, after hours of taking pictures it suddenly stopped going all way down to 1/128... it is the weirdest thing and yes, it is like it suddenly decided to honor the min/max values of the flash itself. Totally clueless. The trigger has the firmware version 14.

You could never go down the 1/128 with the RS600P. Yes the trigger will go down to that, but the strobe its will stay at 1/32 even if the trigger is at 1/1/28

That is exactly what is happening now, but I have been using it all the way from 1/1 to 1/128 for over a year, visually seeing the 1/128 on the flash screen it self... sooo weird

It did, more positive on that one I could not be, the question is how it did happen and why it did work then...

Take it from the guy that did the logo for godox on this unit. it can't and will not show because the segment displays can't do it. I own every version made of this unit.
