Blinking blue and orange on the camera means that the camera is updating its firmware. Do not remove the batteries or power from the camera while it is doing this.

The clicking sound might or might not be a problem. Let's see how long it takes for the firmware to update. It might need to do this for several iterations until it loads the latest firmware. If it takes longer than 20 minutes or so, remove then re-insert the batteries. Try this for a few times if it doesn't work at first. After 5 tries or so then the camera is probably defective.

And only briefly press the sync button on both the base and on the camera. Do not hold the sync buttons for 2 seconds.
