Hi All

Please could someone assist me.

One of my receivers has gone into a strange mode. (or I hope it is). All the lights light up in a sequence. C1 - C2 - C3 - A - B - C Statuslight.

I have tried to reset but it does the same. I have also changed the batteries.

Does anyone have an idea what I can do?

Thank you in advance

Set camera one's 622 to group C (GP SET). Set camera one's flash menu to your needs. Set camera two's menu to A:B and the remote 622 to group A or B. Camera one's flash is group A to camera one but is treated as group C by camera two. Since camera two is only controlling groups A and B, group C (camera one's flash) doesn't fire when camera two takes a picture.


I have a follow up question. I now have the following:

camera 1 with flash 1 using group C
camera 2 with flash 2 using group A
flash 3 is off camera using group A

When I press the shutter on camera 1, flash 1 and flash 3 fires, flash 2 doesn't -> good
When I press the shutter on camera 2, flash 1, 2, 3 all fire -> is it possible to configure yn622 so that only flash 2 and 3 fire, but not flash 1? If not what will it take?

I believe its dead. It happened to my friend's triggers.

I have a question regarding the setup. Hope all you experts could enlighten me a little.

Equipment (6D x 2, YN-622C II x 6, 430EX II x 2, YN560 II x 2):

Canon 6D (1st body) + YN-622C II + 430EX II
Canon 6D (2nd body) + YN-622C II + 430EX II
YN-622C II + YN560 II (OCF)
YN-622C II + YN560 II (OCF)

If I have two OCF on stand at the diagonal corners around the dance floor, what kind of channel + group combinations could I use to fire two OCF from each camera body?

Any help is really appreciated.

From "TOYUG II" - see link in signature.

Two Shooters with One Set of Augmenting Lights

"A second shooter can share the augmenting flashes. But, there is a problem – preventing the zooming and firing of the other camera’s On-TX flash.
Using 622C Transmitter (E-TTL)

"Both Cameras (Type A)
Flash Mode = E-TTL
Firing Group = A:B
Ratio = e.g. 1:3

"Both 622C Transmitters
Control mode = Remote (CH indicator not lit continuously)
Rx Group = C (important: set while off-camera)
On-TX Flash (Main) Flash Mode set by camera to E-TTL
Rx Group is enforced by camera to A
Remote 622Cs Rx Group = B
Remote Flashes (Augmenting) Flash Mode set by camera to E-TTL

"• When either camera takes a shot, its own on-TX flash is treated as group A and fires. The augmenting flashes are treated as group B. The other shooter’s On-TX flash is treated as group C. As group C is not enabled in Firing Group A:B, it does not fire."

I tried retiring, but gave it up - it's a dead end

One of my triggers shows only TTL in the flash functions menu. New batteries, reset (hold channel/group) and still no luck. All pins seem ok and move up and down properly. The test button will fire the other triggered flash. I've replaced the bad trigger with 3 other triggers and they all work as they are suppose to. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

The camera is mis-identifying the YN622C. Usually caused by poor contact on one or more pins. Careful cleaning (alcohol on a swab) of the 622C pins may fix the problem.

Thanks. I'll give the pins a swab.

Pins cleaned. No luck. Maybe time for another set of 622c II or just the TX
