Question about Metz 58 AF-1 FLASH f/NIKON TTL Flash
I am having in problem with zoom part of flash,
err at the place where zoom value displays in LCD
plz help , otherwise it is firing well.
i purchased it new
Is seem a little bit strange but it worked for fine me
The problem is mechanical. The zoommirror in the flashhead is stuck. Mostly it is a minor opstacel. That is the reason that sometimes the problem is solved by placing new batteries. The zoommotor has a little bit more power en can overcome the minor opstacel.
When the zoom is blocked it cannot be controled by the stering software and therefore it gives an error.
1. remove flash from our camera (power off).
2. knok with something hard, I used my fingerknuckle, on the side of your flash head.
3. repeat that for each side (i knocked twice on each side).
4. place our flasher on the camera and power on both.
5. If the problem isn't solved repeat it
It worked for me the first time.

I have the same problem a few days ago. what i did was to give the zoom head a slight thug on with my palm. this will release the mechanism inside from being stuck. i think this is a slight mechanical problem with new metz flashes.
i have a 30D and a Metz 48 AF1.
