I have a Dyson cordless V6 Hepa that will no longer charge. I think it is the battery pack, but only know that it will no longer turn on, even after charging overnight.


Yes that would almost certainly be the battery pack. Buy the cells from eBay and build your own or pay the outrageous price Dyson wants for the pack.

If unused for any length of time, rechargeable batteries lose their ability to retain a charge. Try it with a brand new, fully-charged battery. FWIW, I recharge all my camera and flashgun batteries monthly.

Had a similar problem, it shouldn't take that long to charge. Try reseting the battery gauge, you'll find this under Power management. Only reset when you think the battery is full.

I am trying to locate an instruction manual for a Praktica BD24 flashgun. I managed to locate one for the camera and print it off, but so far am unable to find one for the flashgun


Check here:

They charge for the manuals (Around $15, I think...) but it IS a manual. Most places charge for these anyway, so it's not unreasonable to have to pay for one. Hope this helps!

Either the internal thyristor charging circuit has failed or the flash capacitor is unserviceable.

Neither fault is worth repairing. Buy a small auto-exposure flashgun and use it in the hotshoe; they're dirt cheap and there are plenty of used ones for free if you ask on FreeCycle.

You'll need to go into the DSC-V1 menus to enable the hot shoe on the top plate of the camera and you'll find that even the smallest and least specified flashgun will give better results, but try to get one with at least two aperture settings within the range f2.8 to f8. Anything outside that range is useless to you as that's the entire aperture range on the DSC-V1. You'll also need to ensure that when taking photos, the camera is set to the same aperture as the flashgun. To do this set the camera mode switch to "A" for aperture priority mode and use the thumbwheel to select the correct aperture, the camera will choose the appropriate shutter speed. You can also use "M" for manual mode in which you set both the aperture and choose the shutter speed. At night, choose 1/60 but the actual exposure will be measured in the thousandths of seconds in which the flash is illuminated.

If you're rich or lucky you'll get a Sony HVL-F32X flashgun; it dwarfs the camera and is very powerful but everything is fully automatic with no manual overrides. For this flashgun, the hotshoe menu setting must be "OFF".

The flash unit for my Minolta Maxxum 7000i turns on but no "whine" of a capacitor charging. It goes back off on its on after a few seconds. Pushing the test button has no effect. Is this an owner...


Hello

Flash guns are not normally that easy to repair, and most of the guns for the Minolta 7000i are getting pretty old and parts are becoming scarce.

The first thing to check is that the batteries are good, make sure you are using rechargeable or some of the new high power AA batteries, cheap bulk buy batteries are no good for flashguns.

Second, make sure the battery contacts are nice and clean.

If you still have problems post again but with the model of the flashgun as well.

Nikon SB-800 Defect


Have you tried other batteries?

If one cell has died, there will be enough power to power up the flash, but not enough to charge it reasonably fast. It may also stop the other cells charging up properly if they are charged together. I've had this problem with poor quality rechargeables before. I think flashguns put pretty heavy demands on batteries.
