Metz-50 Wireless issue.

Hi guys, first time i post a thread, and that is a issue i been having with a recently purchased Metz - 50

I updated to firmware 2.0, and it doesn't work properly with Wireless function. It sometimes fires, others don't, it's pretty erratically, mostly useless.
Other sign off a possible problem is that when i select the SL ON in the menu, it doesn't exit by pressing MODE button.

But if i select SERVO MODE, it works every bit as fine as possible. The camera is a K5 and works properly with pentax AF360FGZ.

Anyone got that to? How did you solve it? To put some in advance, it's not possible to return, as it was bought overseas.

I really liked the flash, and thats the only thing annoying me.

I think it is because the detector is located too inside the flash. The flash must be directed to your camera.
You can try to roll a little peace of paper (1 cm x 1.5-2cm long) and insert it in the hole so it comes out a bit.
