Question about Kodak P20 Flash

1 Answer

Schematic Our Kodak P20 flash was dropped. the bottom plate popped off and the soldered wires snapped off. It does not appear to be broken. If I knew where each of the five wires were to be soldered, I think I could do that, snap the plate back in and be good to go. Wiring diagram anyone?

Re: Schematic

Try using a mag. glass or your lens(look from the rear to objects) from your slr on those broken wires' end and try to match up the broken leads.

You can do it. Good luck.

Can I fix a broken flash on the powershot sx230 HS?

Doubtful. It sounds like it's physically damaged and will need to go in for repairs. There could be an issue with wiring broken or circuit board damage.

Dropped Sb-600, and now when the flash can't adjust zoom, making whining sound as the zoom is trying to move.

There's nothing you can do and DIY fixing options can be dangerous due to the very high residual voltages inside.

You've either broken the zoom motor gears or they have been displaced; either way the flash needs to be professionally repaired and preferably by an authorised Nikon service centre.

Despite the lack of a fix I hope my answer has been of some assistance. If so, please rate my answer.

Kodak p20 flash zoom foot came off and wires were pulled free

Find out who makes the flash. Its most likely
Sunpak, Metz or Sigma.
Check out their wesites. Use "contact us" to email them. If no response, write them a letter and mail it with two dollars to cover postage, and someone's time for doing it.

Sigma Flash EF-500 DG SUPER

I use one of my cams with a sigma 500 DG-ST in a nightclub

ive done 3 of the hot shoe connectors in the last year

look up sigma's website and find the contact info
give them a call and they should after some arguing ship you out the parts

every time i have ordered parts they try and get me to send it in for repair even though by the time i am ordering the parts the flashgun is already in bits & i tell them this they keep telling me how dificult it is to do...

for the canon fittment do the following

at the base of the flash remove the 4 screws
this removes the bottom section
unclip the wireing harness
there are 2 screws securing a small metal plate remove them

now there are 4 screws securing the small PCB, remove them, you can now take out the boot from the bottom be careful as the pins and the springs will want to come out
pay atention to the locking pin and how its orientated

swap over the broken boot with the replacement then retrace your steps to get it back together

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.
