RF60 not turning on

I bought this less than a year ago from B&H photo.  I tried updating this today and now I can't turn it on. How do I get this fixed.

I really like this flash.


  • Hello @Traveler01

    I am sorry to hear about this.  To get it fixed, simply return it to B&H.

    In the meantime you could first test if you could udpate the firmware.
    First, connect your RF60 to your computer using a mini USB cable.  You do not need to switch on the RF60 - as soon as it is plugged to the computer, it powers the flash and you can go right to updating the firmware.

    Fingerscrossed after the firmware you could power it up, though I suspect its a contact issue with the power switch. So your firmware test above may be able to confirm this - that the flash may be working internally.

    In any case, since the RF60 is still within the one year warranty, you may contact B&H directly for warranty support.  Thank you!

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "FUJ.1.002", "v.103".

    For the time being, Cactus V6 (MK1) running on firmware version 2.1.001 can be triggered by a V6 II (MK2) running on Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013) and not by X-TTL firmware versions: PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet. 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A01 and A02 currently ONLY works with PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  Other "A" version of X-TTL firmware will be released soon. For both Multi-brand HSS and X-TTL firmware versions (FUJ, SIG, SON), install firmware version 103 / 205 on your RF60X / RF60.

    Cactus RF60 is now an off-camera TTL flash with firmware version 205 or later!

    Metz M400 (for Fujifilm) is now supported on the Cactus V6 II (HSS and TTL).

  • I hooked it up and updated it with the older firmware update. The newest update has an error in it, however I did not have to call B&H. It works well
