Appears to be a dead short internally. Get a repair estimate for the Metz; sounds like it may be too far gone for that, though. Sorry.

How can i tell Metz Mecablitz 60CT4 TTL is fully charged


The Orange Light will light up on the flash.

You are going to need a new battery if it's older than 6 years old.

Not sure what i need to use the mecablitz 60 ct-4 w/ my Nikon d-100


I just bought a D100 (as a backup to a D200 - nothing like being up to date with current technology! B^)). As I understand it, there is no integral flash sync connector on them. You need to get an AS-15 accessory shoe adaptor which goes on the hot shoe, and has a pc sync connector (like the D200 has on the side of the main body). Then you use a standard Metz sync cable to attach to that. The Metz 60 CT flashes have a low voltage trigger circuit and so should be safe with any camera.

METZ 60 CT-4 batteries and capacitors


Although you can still get lead acid batteries from Sonnenschein (the original oem manufacturer) for the Metz CT60 units, a better choice are the Lithium ferrite phosphate or Lithium ion batteries, now available on ebay. For example sales8phd on ebay sells a drop in replacement 6 or 7Ah battery with a charger for ~$75. In general these batteries produce more flashes per charge than the lead acid oem batteries,particularly when shooting a lot of flashes in rapid sucession.

Having trouble charging the dry fit battery for the mecablitz 4. Any sugestions.


Make sure the contacts on both the battery and charger are clean. To clean them, use a rubber pencil eraser to shine them up. Do not use any cleaning fluids or abrasives like sand paper as this willonly cause them to corrode more.

After a period of time the dryfit battery will wearout and willstop taking a charge. If you battery is more than 2 years old than it may be time to replace it.
