Q and wireless flash

I have a phottix strato wireless flash trigger and receiver.

The odd thing is that this works fine with my K30 and with my K01 but I just don't seem to be able to get it to work on the Q.

I can;t think of anything I am doing differently with the different cameras, so don't understand why I can't get it to work.

Has anyone has a similar issue, or have any ideas?

Had the same problem with a Aputure Wireless Trigger. Set the Q to "no flash" and it will work fine. I was given this instruction by a member here and it resolved my issue.

I know it sound silly, but you have to turn the flash off in the flash menu (left joggle key, last icon, on the right).

Thanks a lot. Very odd, but yes, that has worked. Thanks.
