Any idea what my onboard flash thinks it's doing?

I've done this a thousand times, but now something's changed and I can't make it work. I normally use my onboard flash as the controller for my strobes(It's all 100% optical, no radio). It's supposed to fire, trigger all the slave flashes and not show up in the photo. But something's not working....




Any ideas guys?

Did you have them worked before ? If so then it's strange. The only thing I can think of is both of your slave flashes are not P-TTL and were fired by the onboard preflash.

Ken,
Under Fn (function) turn off the red eye reduction. I think that it is firing your strobes.
