Don't let the body auto detect the trigger, switch to manual " M " and set the stutter speed lower then 1/125 then adjust to the required aperture or turn the dial to " X "

A trigger should work up until and including 1/180s (a speed that is only available when 1/2 EV steps are chosen or the "X" mode is chosen).

The camera will never detect a simple trigger like the one you have, but triggering should still work.

A potential cause for misfiring could be that the transmitter is too close to the receiver. Try to keep some 30cm+ between the transmitter and the receiver, just to make sure.
