Question about Kodak Gear for Canon TTL Flash

Open Question

Dropped the unit and hot shoe came off. Need a wiring diagram.

I dropped my flash and the hot shoe connector came off and the 5 wires pulled off at the solder joints. The flash itself still powers on and zooms and flashes when using the buttons on back. I am looking for a wiring diagram so I can reconnect the 5 wires and reassemble the flash.

SOURCE: broken flash

In short you cant fix it.
Switch camera on and activate the flask and put to your ear
If you hear a high pitched whistle the capacitor is charginf - so this would indicate the tube has blown
No whistle then the capacitor has blown.
Either way - New Camera - A repairs is not likely

SOURCE: my son dropped it and the flash no longer works

Contact kodak if you want an estimate for repairs.

If your camera can change the exposure, exposure settings. You could just change it so your camera can absorb more light in dark places.

Find out who makes the flash. Its most likely
Sunpak, Metz or Sigma.
Check out their wesites. Use "contact us" to email them. If no response, write them a letter and mail it with two dollars to cover postage, and someone's time for doing it.

If you look at the trigger/switch mechanism, you'll note little lettered ovals on either side at the bottom/base where the wires go. The black (hot) wire from the plug goes to the side stamped "LINE", and the white (neutral) wire goes to the side stamped "LOAD"

Hot shoe plastic section broke on flash unit

I managed it by buying a broken (non-working) F32X from an auction service for something like 5 bucks. I just made sure (by looking at the photos) that the hotshoe was intact.

Here's how to disassemble and replace foot (I got to this by trial and luckily no error ^^).

  1. Unscrew 2 small screws located under the battery flip cover.
  2. Put the lamp (moving part) in the upright position.
  3. Unscrew 1 small screw above the infared sensor (below the main lamp part which you moved to the upright position).
  4. Remove the cover of the infared sensor by gently pulling forward.
  5. On two sides of the infared sensor there are two small clips which hold the 2 casing pieces together. Pull them away from the casing just a tiny bit and use something to keep them in this position (I used 2 small nails). Then pull the pieces apart gently.
  6. Just behind the hotshoe casing you can see a small plastic inset -- place a screwdriver sideways between this inset and the hotshoe to help you separate the two casing parts. Be careful when doing that, don't use too much force, wiggle the casing instead to make this easier (this is the most tricky part).
  7. When the electronics is exposed, there is a single screw in the middle of the motherboard. Remove the screw and gently pull the motherboard away from the casing. You do not have to pull it all the way or disconnect any cables, you just need to make sure the bottom battery connectors are pulled out of the casing just a little, because then under the two middle battery connectors (looking from the top, as if you were putting the batteries in) you can see two screws!
  8. Unscrew those two screws, and the hotshoe will come apart. Pull it out gently and remove a single electrical connector that connects it to the flash.
Do this in case of your working lamp (with a broken hotshoe) and your replacement lamp (with a good hotshoe), and just move the good hotshoe to your working lamp.

Took me about an hour to do this (most time was spent on trying to figure out how to disassemble the lamp), and the lamp works perfectly.

Warning: better test disassembly on the replacement lamp, since even if you break it, all you need it for is the hotshoe, so you can practice on it. Only after you learn how to disassemble the F32X do this on your working lamp.

Hope this helps!

Vivitar 285 flash and metal hot shoe

The red wire connects to the center contact and the black connects to the outside/ground connector. The other wires are to be isolated and insulated from everything else, tape those up and put them out of the way.

Sunpak 383 problem

Try to trigger it by shorting Center of shoe mount and the side terminal with a small wire.If it is firing the flash is ok.
If not there is open connection in the sync jack ,due to repeated inserting of sync chord.The springy part inside is not going back to its normal position.
You can fix it your self by opening it(adapter only)
.If you are new to this take a photo of the wiring immediately after opening the shoe adapter to see the position if any wire breaks later on.
Do not give up .383 is great flash
