Re: 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

Ttl connection to a metz 60ct4 or 45 ct-5

You have to use a special cable adapter for each type of camera.
These old flash units do not have adapters for current digital cameras. For old cameras the only place to get the adapters, is on ebay or from KEH.

Yes, the 60CT-4 works with the Pocketwizards.
Yes, they will work by connecting the Metz's cable into the PC of your camera.

To get longer life out of the flash tube, don't use full manual all the time. Like shooting more than 300 in less than 15 mins/day.
Just dail those number down.

Only full power

Can you check the voltage of the not working battery pack?

Are you talking about just the rechargable battery or the battery unit?

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

Can't fire properly at 90 degrees

Did you buy this used? Maybe the following problems: wires inside are loose or cold soldered. Flash tube has coated with film coating or flash head(inside)is dirty. Alexander
