Pentax AF 200 FG + Trigmaster II issue

Hi all,
I am looking for advice. I tried to trigger AF200G flash wirelesly via radio trigger. Strangely it doesn't work as expected.....flash triggers continuosly in interval of few seconds. After it recharges it flashes again and again. It doesn't react to camera shutter at all, just keeps flashing in intervals. Tried Manual mode as well as ttl mode....no difference. Has anybody used this little flash succesfully with radio triggers? Strangely the trigger works flawlesly with Sigma Super and Nikon SB Flashes.
Any advice will be welcommed.

You don't say what trigger you are using. It may well be that the flash is not compatible with the trigger, although you may be able to get it to work in plain manual mode (on trigger and flash)

Which version Trigmaster II are you using: Nikon, Canon, or Sony? What happens if you use the test button on the receiver?
