BEING ONLY 5 MONTHS OLD YOU CAN SEND IT BACK TO THE FACTORY FOR REPAIR IF YOU BOUGHT THIS IN THE USA . NOT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A COPY OF YOUR RECEIPT WHEN YOU SEND IT TO NIKON .

Something inside popped when I fired it up after several years


Likely the capacitor that stores the electricity used to make the flash. Replacement may be more expensive than the flash itself.

Camera flash is not working. Batteries in the


Hello,

If camera flash is not working it must be the high - intensity discharge (HID )lamp of the flash assembly that got busted which needs to be replaced. Parts are available in every local camera shops and they are not that costly. So consult your nearest camera repair shop and have it replaced with a compatible HID flash lamp.

Take care!

Sigma EF-500-DG, does not charge and does not become ready


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first - make sure they have full charge (in the wrong way can discharge them) but if is it still giving the same fault, your flash is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Flashing red light on the Kensington wireless mouse base


I still have the manual for my mouse.  Model number 64321.
When this mouse was manufactured it used NiCad batteries which developed a memory much more than the newer batteries.  The older NiCad batteries needed to be conditioned occasionally so Kensington provided a way to do that with the charging base. 
The red light is for indicating discharge status of NiCad batteries.
The red light will flash quickly when you press the battery discharge button on the bottom of the base.  This indicates that you now have 5 seconds to place the mouse in the charging base for battery discharge.
The red light will flash flash more slowly when the battery is being discharged.
After the battery is fully discharged, the base will then charge the batteries.
It should be noted that very few manufacturers of products that utilized NiCad batteries provided a "battery conditioning" feature.  Kensington was unique in this regard.  Battery conditioning allowed NiCad batteries to have a longer useful life.

Now maybe you can help me....  I lost my power supply that plugs into the USB connector.  If you have yours, can you tell me what the output voltage is and what the polarity is of the inner pin.  This will be marked right on the power supply base.  
I plan to just get a generic power supply from Radio Shack, but I need the voltage value and polarity.  Until then, I can still use the mouse, but it won't charge.  FOr now, I'm just using standard AAA batteries.
Thanks.

Alkalines won't work in my 360 controller.


there are units designed to run on rechargeable batteries and some that run on alkaline batteries
the difference is the current draw required
alkaline batteries have a high discharge rate available but for short duration while the others have a smaller discharge rate but over a longer period of time
you should only use the type of batteries recommended for the unit

Flash working inproperly


The battery contacts are not making proper contact to the battery, or there is a cold solder connection in the circuit board inside of the flash unit.

There are photo shops that can have flashes serviced, or you can send the flash to the manufacture service department.

Unless you are able to do electronics service and are used to working on high voltage electronics at the component level I don't recommend opening the flash yourself.

Inside the flash they use very high voltage at very high discharge current. Even though the flash looks innocent and works only on a few simple batteries, this can be dangeriously deceiving. The discharge current can be very high, and the main flash capacitor can hold a lethal charge for many days!

Flashing light


cycle the batteries in a external charger a fex times (charge then discharge) I suspect that over the years of using then putting it in its dock the batteries have had a very erratic charge discharge cycle cycling them as I suggest should bring them back.
