    I own a FZ30 and a Speedlight 199A. According to
    http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html the trigger voltage is
    safe (4.9V) and both work OK, but only once. After the first flash,
    the Pilot light on the 199A starts flashing and won't allow another
    flash, unless I trigger a flash manually. After that it works again,
    but again just once! The same happens when I use the 199A as a slave
    with a slave trigger. I have tried so far: (1) disabled sensor, (2)
    manual setting on front and back of Flash, (3) disabled the 2
    additional contact pins on the hotshoe.
    Is there any way to use the 199A either mounted on the FZ30 or as a
    slave? (I own flash and radio controlled slave triggers).
    Thank you.
