Question about Konica Minolta 5600HS for Maxxum Minolta TTL Flash

1 Answer

I have a Minolta 5600Hs flash. It's worked great

I have a Minolta 5600Hs flash. It's worked great for several years and recently just stopped turning on. I live in a high humidity area and it's been raining a lot recently but the flash has been through several years of this. Should I try to fix it (professionally or by myself) or just toss it?

I would not recommend you fix it yourself since several of the inside componentes are high voltage and dangerous. But, why wont the flash turn on? if the batteries are good, could it be the battery contacts on the battery door and inside the flash? If the batteries have ever corroded (even a little) then that would be the problem. Use a pencil eraser to shine up the contacts until they are bright and shiney clean. Do not use sand paper or anthing vabbrasive as that will cause the contacts to corrod more and the problem will be worse.

Wide angle defuser is broken Minolta 5600hs


It's not a problem if you're not using a wide-angle lens. And if you are, you can always diffuse the flash by putting a thin white handkerchief or even a sheet of tissue paper over the flash.

I have a Minolta 5600HS flash that I have used for four years with my maxxum 7d without a problem until recently. The flash continues to function fine while on the camera and can be set to wireless mode on...


It could be a simple connection that is loose and just need to be put back into position, or it could be a controller circuit that is bad and needs to be replaced. This is not a user repairable problem. It should be sent in for repair.

QUANTARAY QBX-8000xi Flash for SONY ALPHA - 350 digital SLR


Unfortunately not.

This flash is a superb budget alternative to the Minolta alternatives but is only suitable for their film cameras. Sony's SLR's are based on the later Minolta Digital SLR's and they're all incompatible with this flash.

The technical differences between the film and digital Minolta cameras explains why a Minolta 5600HS (for example) had to be redesigned and redesignated as a 5600HS(D). The former will not work on Sony Alpha models, but the latter is fully compatible.

My minolta 5600hs flash does not flash all the time.


Is your Flash on Forced Mode or auto mode? If it's on Auto mode, the camera decide that flash work or not! but if it's on forced mode, I think there is a hardware problem... I hope this helps
