Try unplugging everything from the sled except the power cable. I had found the remote extension cable to interfere with the operation of the sled so I leave it unconnected. I also find using the PJ to trigger the lens in/out to be an exercise in futility. There are many times I want to swap aspect ratios to see menus, for example, but don't want to be moving the lens back and forth.
Certainty and conviction are a sure sign you don't know what you're talking about! The world is not black and white, rather shades of grey!
