    That Bulb has broke wont flash. Its not turned off.

    Look at your d70s press the flash button which releases the flash and when you push it down it stays down.

    Basically mine will not stay down and the flash will not flash because the bulb has broke



1 Answer

First, some clarity:

What do you mean by "flash bulb has gone"? Is the internal flash not working any more?

What do you mean by "onboard flash won't catch"? Do you mean that the internal (pop-up) flash doesn't work?

Is it possible that you have the flash turned off completely?

When I turn it on, both the temp and the lamp lights flash and the projector shuts down.

It sounds like either the bulb has gone bad or the high voltage igniter has gone bad, they take around 5kv to start the bulb then run at around 60v continuous, look into the projector lense in the dark if you see the bulb flash but not catch chances are your bulb is at the end of life

Wired in new directional on sportster wont flash

From your description, it sounds like the new bulbs (that won't flash) are LED bulbs.
When you replace the stock Harley incandescent bulbs with LEDs, you NEED to add a LOAD EQUALIZER to make the bulbs flash:

The amp draw is different with LEDs, and they won't flash without the equalizer.

How do you change headlight on 2001 mitsubishi galant

Your bulb is held on by a spring clip that goes around the base of the bulb. The plug on the back is hard to remove because you do not want to pull too hard and damage the spring clip. Using a trouble light or flash light to see, grab the rubber tab and peel the rubber cover back far enough to see the spring. Now locate tab on the end of the spring that is under neath the catch and slide the spring off the catch. Now you can pull the bulb out of the housing and get a good grip on it to pull the wire plug off the back.Grab the new bulb by the base being careful not to touch the glass of the bulb. Do Not Get Any Grease or Dirt on the Bulb. Place the bulb in the headlight, reattach the spring clip, put on the rubber cover, and plug in the wire harness. If you do get the bulb dirty or touch it by accident just wash it with some clean drying alcohol before installation.

you mean the flash is not opening or coming out of its enclosure? if its not opening up, its stucked! try inserting a small plastic card into the flash compartment. a hook is holding the flash from coming up like a door lock. its near the shutter button side; if its up and not flashing take a look at the bulb, if theres a change in color its dead already. dead bulb can be checked by shooting on autmode (the green mode), dead bulb will gonna shoot but flash wont go, if the flash circuitry is bad it wont shoot no matter what.
