Re: Synv Flash to camera with no hotshoe

Buy a small slave unit that attatches to the flash bottom.  Use the pop up flash on your camera set to the lowest power.  The slave unit will detect your cameras flash and fire the flash with the slave unit at the same time.  I am doing this with this same flash myself with fairly nice results.

Repair a broken hot shoe mount on the speedlight

Have to try tighten down the four screws holding the shoe?

Would you like me to fix it for you?

If it is just the Hotshoe Assy, then you can buy from me.

Flash does not trigger

To make a guess as to what is occurring you have not presented enough information. So here are some things to try:
  • Make sure the flash is seated solidly on the camera. That is usually the issue.
  • With flash off the camera look at the shoe mount. Check the locking lever making sure when turned the center pin extends and retracts.
  • Sometimes the center pin does not engage the hotshoe
  • Clean both the bottom of the flash is clean and also the camera hot shoe.

Which adapter do Ineed to connect my nikon d90 with metz 45 cl-4 (non digital )

What do you mean by adaptor?! You will need to by a hotshoe adaptor with a hole that talkes the old style cable plug from your Metz lead and away you go! Try jessops. (As long as you have the lead from your Metz!?

Can I use my Vivitar 385 with my Pentax K200?

Yes, you can use the flash if your camera has a PC connector.

Or, check the trigger voltage: under 7VDC = OK on hotshoe.

Broken flat ribbon cable on SD 28 flash

Hello, after breaking mine this morning I was able to fix the flash so It can fire from the hotshoe.

Any automatic TTL features will still not work however atleast you will be able too fire in auto, and manual modes.

I simply opened the flash by taking off the hotshoe, and then swiveling the flash head 90 degrees to expose the four screws there. You need only remove the two screws from the front side of the unit.

Open the battery door and gently pull away the front case (Be careful there are several delicate ribbon cables that you do not want to snap. From here you can either unscrew all the ribon cables to free yourself room to solder or try and dodge them.

You should now be able to see the rear side of the PC sync socket. There is a blue wire that joins the outer edge of the socket - this is ground. Solder onto this point and join onto the top left circle of the PCB board of the hotshoe. (Opposite corner from where the ribbon cable attatches) There are copper circles exposed on the pcb for easy soldering.

Next, return to the rear of the PC sync socket and note the orange wire coming from the centre pin. Solder a wire to this point, and then down to the hotshoe PCB and to the circle that joins to the centre pin of the hotshoe. (Trace the circuit paths)

Sorry I did this about 30mins ago and I'm remembering this out of my head.
