Studio Lights

Help, I have a canon 50d and interfit 150 studio lights. For some reason my lights won't flash with either my drt-2g wireless remote or my sync cable, any suggestions will be greatfully appreciated. They seem to work ok with my speedlight as the sync.

  Just may not be making good contact. Some male ends of a sync cord need to have the pin inside slightly bent to the side so that it makes contact with the insides of the female end it plugs into.

  Hi Lynne,
Gregory is right pc cords often fail. It bothers me that the wireless unit failed at the same time. Did you check the batteries? There are batteries in sender units as well as in receivers, but they aren't really marked. Perhaps that is the problem?
Thanks, John Siskin
