SOURCE: Flash doesn't fire properly at regular position

Did you buy this used or new?

If used: neck has broken/shorted wires.
Try fires with the Test Button in A mode with hand blocking sensor and then without. Move head around.

Where will a found serial no. on metz 45 cl-1flash gun?


Raise the tiltable head the number is embossed below it(at chin side).Near hinge.
That means if you tilt flash head fully upward the number is exactly at the opposite side of Flash power calculator dial(Two inch round chart).

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.

Example:
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.

Truly,

My 60CT-1 only fires at full power. Worked fine one day the next time I used the unit it would only fire full power each flash.


Is the top dial set on AUTO?

Is the sensor window clean or obstructed?

Checking both of these may solve your problem. Do you have a Manual for this flash? There are free pdf downloads on the I/Net.

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

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 atdlee@netzero.com
