Nikon hot shoes are more Pentax compatable but Canon cable sets are Penatx compatable
...and that is why the OP is having difficulty. The wireless trigger is not firing (wrong hot shoe base). As for P-TTL...with the Youngnuo and Pentax, it is all manual (no P-TTL, ever) and that is probably a good thing.

Thanks for all the comments, which confirm the Hahnel combi is never going to operate my K3 or flash. So the unanswered question is:' what WILL operate the k3 remotely and trigger a flash?'

A Cactus v6 (or even v5) remote trigger probably.

Thanks for this discussion/disagreement/argument. I wouldn't have known that I now want this product(Cactus).
