Q:why using the AF lamp in X1N transmitter, the picture is unfocused?  
A:
The AF focusing function can be only normally used with Nikon original flashes, so by using the AF lamp in the camera to address the issue, turn off the AF focusing function in the transmitter(C.Fn-06 set 0),and then turn on the AF focusing function in the camera( Set ON for the build-in AF lamp in camera customer menu)
   
   
Q: When using X1N with Nikon flash, the mode and output can not be adjusted, while the Canon does.  
A:
It is because the Nikon flash system are not allowed the signal from the camera hot shoe to the flash. When using X1N, can use TTL mode to calculate the other modes and outputs, so the flash must be set TTL mode. As for Canon, it allow the signal from camera hot shoe to flash, so X1C trigger can control the flash mode and outputs.

The Reason & Solution of Not Triggering in Godox 2.4G Wireless  

1.Disturbed by the 2.4G signal in outer environment (e.g. wireless base station, 2.4G wifi router, Bluetooth, etc.)
To adjust the channel CH setting on the flash trigger (add 10+ channels) and use the channel which is not disturbed. Or turn off the other 2.4G equipment in working.
2. Please make sure that whether the flash has finished its recycle or caught up with the continuous shooting speed or not(the flash ready indicator is lighten) and the flash is not under the state of over-heat protection or other abnormal situation.
Please downgrade the flash power output. If the flash is in TTL mode, please try to change it to M mode(a preflash is needed in TTL mode).
3. Whether the distance between the flash trigger and the flash is too close or not
Please turn on the “close distance wireless mode” on the flash trigger:
X1 series: press the test button and hold on, then turning it on until the flash ready indicator blinks for 2 times.
XPro series: Set the C.Fn-DIST to 0-30m.
4. Whether the flash trigger and the receiver end equipment are in the low battery states or not
Please replace the battery(the flash trigger is recommended to use 1.5V disposable alkaline battery).
