I have the A300 and HVL F36AM flash unit and am trying to figure out how to get the flash unit to fire from a remote, off camera location.

One would think all I have to do is turn ON wireless flash on camera (FN button/flash mode/WL), and then turn on the flash unit and set to wireless mode (which defaults to CH1...the camera should too I believe) and shoot.

So far no luck. I have tried shooting with the pop up flash on or off, wireless mode on etc....and yes, the batteries are full up on the 36AM unit. LOL

Neither the camera manual or flash manual talks about having to synchronize the two - I would expect it to just work, yet I remain unsuccessful. Any thoughts out there?
