No not the Soldiers, only the Opas are comtatible with the Kings.
You could probably wire up a PC sync cord into the Soldier Tx (instead of the broken foot contacts) and connect that to your cameras sync port (if it has one) and fire the King and Solder Tx at the same time. You could mount the Soldier on top of the King Tx hostshoe just as a place to mount it.
Thanks for the reply. My mistake, i should have clarified that when I meant broken contacts I meant the ones connecting the CR2 battery inside as shown in the image below:
Here's a few things that I've noticed:
1. When i press the battery down there seems to be some connection and the red light flickers on for a second, but nothing beyond that. No amount of pressing or shifting the battery around will get the light to come back on. Only seems to replicate when i take the battery out completely and put it back in. For a second the light will flicker on as i press the battery in and again... nothing.
2. I've tried using various conducting strips of metal to try and see if I can bridge the connection manually, but failed to do so. I probably just suck at this.
3. Tried using 3 different brand new batteries, confirmed they work on other devices and still the same as in (1).
At this point I've almost resigned myself to the loss of the $66 I paid for this. It all happened when I started having some misfires and accidentally jammed the battery in because I thought it was loose - no one to blame but myself.
However, if there was SOME way that the Rx could fire while using maybe the new pixel kings, i would be ecstatic. Is there any way to pinpoint the frequency and perhaps adjust it?
