I have a 45CT-1 Service Manual, but it's in German. If I knew what to look for, I could probably find what you want. I know some German, but not enough to follow the technical description in the manual.

SOURCE: how do i increase or decrease my power on my metz 60-ct?

The dial on the top does nothing to the flash. It's just a guide, like a simple ruler.

Example:
You just set your ASA/ISO (Yellow Line) to Orange DIN/ASA Number to match your camera's ASA/ISO.
Then just read those Scale of F Stops to outside to get FT/M (Feet or Meter).

The true meter from flash is on Handle of flash:
Set Orange Horizontal Line to ASA/ISO Number to match camera.
Set Left Slider, push up & down, to the F Stop that you wanted to shoot.
You have 6 Auto Sensor F Stops
1 for M (Motordrive)
1 for W (Winder)

Hope they are helpful on all photographers using Metz 60CT-1 Flash.

Truly,

I had that same problem also, but mines was temporarly. Ik think the condensor inside the Metz has to regeneratie (recover) itself by using with a full charged fresh batteries. The high freq. sound is normal. (although not to loud) after a 5 MINUTES the orange bulb should light up. How more u used how better the start-up time. My old Metz start-up time was around 40 sec. and now ot is within 7 sec.

SOURCE: Metz mecablitz 45 ct 1 and Nikon D-90

The trigger voltage of the 45CL-1 is about 12V, so it should be safe to connect directly to the hot shoe with an adaptor, or to the pc soclet, if the D90 has one. If the D90 is anything like my Canon 40D, which can stand about 30V on the hot shoe, then all the 45CL series will be ok, as they have trigger voltages between 9V and 12V. The 45CT-5 has a trigger voltage of 15V and works well on the 40D. I use 3 different Metz 45 models with my 40D and all work well on automatic, where the flash sensor itself controls the light output.

Not sure what i need to use the mecablitz 60 ct-4 w/ my Nikon d-100


I just bought a D100 (as a backup to a D200 - nothing like being up to date with current technology! B^)). As I understand it, there is no integral flash sync connector on them. You need to get an AS-15 accessory shoe adaptor which goes on the hot shoe, and has a pc sync connector (like the D200 has on the side of the main body). Then you use a standard Metz sync cable to attach to that. The Metz 60 CT flashes have a low voltage trigger circuit and so should be safe with any camera.

I have a metz 60 ct 1 flash gun its not warking auto i think cr3jm trak was burnd i repace those part but still its not warking are there any problem


Sometimes the long slide switch (pcb switch) gets worn with metal particles rubbed onto tracks from the contacts. The switch then has partial shorts and only works on certain positions. The track looks black when this happens. Clean with alcohol and rub vigorously with toothbrush and swabs.

METZ 60 CT-4 batteries and capacitors


Although you can still get lead acid batteries from Sonnenschein (the original oem manufacturer) for the Metz CT60 units, a better choice are the Lithium ferrite phosphate or Lithium ion batteries, now available on ebay. For example sales8phd on ebay sells a drop in replacement 6 or 7Ah battery with a charger for ~$75. In general these batteries produce more flashes per charge than the lead acid oem batteries,particularly when shooting a lot of flashes in rapid sucession.

During the flash impulse the "photocell", actually a phototransistor, charges a capacitor with current, proportional to the reflected light intensity. As soon as the voltage on that capacitor reaches the trigger voltage of a four-layer diode (which, in fact, is playing a role of a PUT) that turns on and triggers the quench thyristor. There is a trimmer potentiometer in the four-layer diode circuitry, which sets the trigger voltage. You can try to fiddling with that. But the culprit of the misalignment easily can be in any of the parts in the above described circuitry.

Metz 60-4 flash takes much longer than normal for the ready light to come on to allow me to take another photo.


It is likely the capacitor in the battery pack. If they are not powered up every month, they dry out resulting in long power up and recycle times. You'll need to get it replaced to rejuvenate your 60 CT-4 to its original spec.
