Help! Flash problems

My AF360 FGZ II flash works perfectly well on the camera but not when attached to a Cactus trigger, and strangely on occasion when attached to the Cactus does not turn on; taking it off and it switches on and off perfectly well. The setting on the Cactus is auto pentax and I have two other Pentax flashes (AF201FG and ring flash) and both of those work fine. I have cleaned the contacts, changed the batteries but to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Problem solved: the Cactus recognised the flash so I knew there was a contact even though it wouldn't fire the flash but pushing hard on the flash locking lever got a result so a drop of WD40 on the locking mechanism seems to have done the trick. I must credit the Cactus support team who responded quickly and gave helpful advice.
