Without knowing what a 9600 is I cannot be sure, but the cl45 has a flsh connection cord to be conected to your cameras X sync port. This means the camera will only trigger the flash and the flash unit does all the calculations on its own (ie it does not work as a dedicated flash unit in this mode). You may be able to get a hot shoe connector to get some of teh cameras functions controlling the flash unit, but the amount of control the camera can send to the flash unit will depend on how old the flash unit is and whether it has these functions to start with.

Contact Metz direct and ask them. Thier site is located here:

Good luck.

Note: I had an old one of these years ago (pre Digital) and it was a great flash unit.

Does anybody in the EURO zone repair Metz CT-4 flash guns as if you go outside that area you can be liable for Customs Charges. I Think.


Hello again William

There is service in the UK. There is no Customs charges because duty will already have been made when new. Make sure you mark package 'Return to Maker for REPAIR'.

Metz CT-4 flash gun overheated on the shaft the plastic casing overheated and melted the plastic on the handle grip I opened it up and noticed the wires inside were completely Melted.


Unfortunately, from your description, the flash is completely done for - while a repair may be possible, I doubt if it would be economically worthwhile. Replacement is probably the only answer.
What may be more important is to find out why this occurred - is it down to the charger, the batteries or an internal problem with the flash ? Were the batteries those supplied by Metz, or a different make ? If they were Metz ones, then maybe you should inform the manufacturers, to help others avoid this problem, and you might get a replacement flash if it is a manufacturing problem.

Any idea where I get a replacement charger for a Metz60CT4


EBay, if that's what you want. The metz "chargers" are just 7 volt ac transformers - they supply 7 volts to the battery pack which has the actual charging circuit in it. I haven't pulled one apart yet, but I'm guessing they're very rudimentary chargers. Depending on what you're using for a battery you might want to use a modern external smart charger. I use $20 AGM batteries from batteries plus (instead of the $80 metz batteries) and use an external charger from WallMart on them. It's quick, lets me see the current charge state, won't overcharge the battery, and works on my car and boat batteries too.

Where will a found serial no. on metz 45 cl-1flash gun?


Raise the tiltable head the number is embossed below it(at chin side).Near hinge.
That means if you tilt flash head fully upward the number is exactly at the opposite side of Flash power calculator dial(Two inch round chart).

AC Power Supply for Metz 45 ct5


Hi daf4,

I have a circuit diagram for the 45CT-5 and the flash unit as well. The voltage is 360V DC, which goes straight across the flash tube. The top pin is positive, when the notch in the socket is on the right hand side, i.e. towards the back of the flash.

I'm also looking for a circuit diagram for a 45CL-4, if you know anyone who has one.

Regards,

Neil

External Flash for 3000Z


I have tried a couple of external flashes on the 3000Z. It is my understanding from reading various Internet posts (and I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong) that, other than triggering the flash to go off, there is no communication between the external flash in the hot shoe of the 3000Z and the 3000Z itself. Settings need to be made manually in the manual mode to set the f-stop and the aperture to get good exposures. The Metz flashes are expensive. Most have opted to use less expensive flashes such as the Vivitar 283/383, or a Sunpak, or even a "Wal-mart" flash. I chose an inexpensive bounce flash with a secondary "fill-in" flash to get rid of the shadows sometimes seen with indoor bounce flash pics. I purchased the Phoenix 82ZBDA Multi-dedicated twin flash from Porter's Photo Catalogue for $37.95. This flash works fine, but is not that powerful (GN 79 ). If you need a more powerful flash, you might consider the Vivitar 383.
