Question about Sunpak Camera Flashes
Can I use the sunpak auto 121 flash with an Olympus E-410 canera, if so how, with what settings? Where can I find a users manial for this flash.
The probable cause of such behavior is a faulty quench capacitor. The part is specially manufactured to withstand rather high voltage (350 V) and large current peaks (300 A) - despite of its small dimensions - and often goes wrong. Replace it with a capacitor cannibalized from a cheap second-hand shoe-mount flash having the same feature (series thyristor circuitry) and as high guide number as available. Both Sunpak units are highly populated inside, only try to repair them if you have a certain skills in such a job. If any of these explanations is unfamiliar for you then leave the flash alone and take it to a repair shop - there is lethal voltage inside, even long after the unit has been switched off. Good luck!
