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.

There's a lot available on Ebay. Search for 'Metz 60'. Good luck.

Any idea where I get a replacement charger for a Metz60CT4


EBay, if that's what you want. The metz "chargers" are just 7 volt ac transformers - they supply 7 volts to the battery pack which has the actual charging circuit in it. I haven't pulled one apart yet, but I'm guessing they're very rudimentary chargers. Depending on what you're using for a battery you might want to use a modern external smart charger. I use $20 AGM batteries from batteries plus (instead of the $80 metz batteries) and use an external charger from WallMart on them. It's quick, lets me see the current charge state, won't overcharge the battery, and works on my car and boat batteries too.

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.

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.

AC Power Supply for Metz 45 ct5


Hi daf4,

I have a circuit diagram for the 45CT-5 and the flash unit as well. The voltage is 360V DC, which goes straight across the flash tube. The top pin is positive, when the notch in the socket is on the right hand side, i.e. towards the back of the flash.

I'm also looking for a circuit diagram for a 45CL-4, if you know anyone who has one.

Regards,

Neil

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.

Metz 45CL-4 not firing consistently... Hi, Have a problem with a Metz 45CL-4 flashgun. I may have damaged the circuit by rapid charging from an external NiMh pack whilst trying to form the main capacitor....


Hi Guys!
I have had the same problem on CT-1 s and CT-5s.
In both cases the flash cable (called PC synch cable) was to blame. If flash fires correctly with the test button on the handle, then cleaning the cable contacts with contact cleaner spray seems to be the best first step.

Gerard

NiCad battery not charging


the charger adapter that plugs into the battery pac from the wall has a fuse inside it open it uo and check the fuse has not blown as that's normally the reason i get no light on the pac also using a small enough file clean off all the terminals and check that the spring terminals contacting the circuit board from the plug are not corroded and contacting correctly

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.
