Re: metz 6ct4 flash head

Are you still having problem with the flash not flashing? Use a DVM (digital volt meter) to measure the battery from the pack. Take the 6 volt battery out from the pack and measure it. A reading of 6vdc or greater is good. Also the for amp. of the battery. Alexander

How can i tell Metz Mecablitz 60CT4 TTL is fully charged

The Orange Light will light up on the flash.

You are going to need a new battery if it's older than 6 years old.

The clear dial that is used for setting the power ratio on top of the flash head is missing. Do you know where I can get a replacement for the power ratio dial that is missing?

That just gives you the distances you can use when running the flash in the "Winder" mode. If you don't use that, then you don't really need it. While parts may be available, you can get a used CT 1/2 head on EBay cheap - often for under $20. I'd go that route.

What an adapter I need to connect Nikon D200 with Metz 60CT4?

Just the regular Metz pc sync cord. Connect that to the sync connector on the side of the D200. The trigger voltages are fine. Set the camera to manual, 125th of a second. Set the slider on the back of the flash to the film speed you set on the camera. Use the "auto" slider to pick the "C" setting that approximates the distance you're shooting, and read the f stop off the scale. Set that on the camera. Try a test shot or two and adjust f stop, C setting, or film speed if it needs tweaking. Slow the shutter speed if you want more ambient light in the picture. Or of course meter it with a hand held incident light meter. I just did some shooting at a local horse show. Was in the stands so couldn't meter. Took some test shots of the people setting up the ring, and adjusted so when the competitors rode out I was pretty much on.

My Metz mecablitz 60CT4 has two direct cables connecting the battery to the flash gun. One works fine. But the other one "activates" the flash when I turn onthe battery (the f-stop, ft, and ISO numbers...

I repair these baby.
Only one High Voltage Cable can be use not two. Is your HV Cable or your PC Sync Cord that is defective? Do you have a DVM?

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.

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.

Metz Flash Power?

Hi Tom,

The battery is Metz Accu 60-38 4.5Ah at 6VDC
VRLA Battery 100 20 4010

Any Pb battery at 4.5Ah or higher will do.
Toy & Us sells some of them for kid cars.

Metz 60 CT4

The Metz 60CT-4 uses Accu 60-38 4.5Ah @6V Pb battery.
Charging system is difference from NiMH battery.

Beside the voltage is only 1.2VDC per cell on NiMH battery.
Four cells will have a total of 4.8VDC.
If you got five (5) cells: 1.2 X 5 = 6.0VDC. Do not charge these cells with Metz. Use NiMH Charger for NiMH battery.

60ct4 metz flash head

Hi Canday, As the connections are OK, it is possible that a lead inside one of the wires is broken. You don't say if it powers up or not, so it is very difficult to give more specific advice or diagnosis. It is a professional unit, so I suggest you take it into a top camera shop for their advice. Good luch, John Hannah
