k-x and yn560 - wireless mode not working

I' set my camera to M, build in flash in wireless mode and my yn560 to s1 - and it's not working. Yn is firing, but light is not recorded by camera.

You'll probably want to set the YN560 to mode S2, it is likely getting triggered by the pttl preflash (which, I'd recall, you cannot disable). Also, built-in flash might as well be in 'regular' mode as the YN560 won't 'understand' the control signals, they might just complicate matters further.
