I also broke the base of my Quantaray QBSZ 370 where it fits the hot shoe. I can not even find a contact to Quantaray.

Doesn't work with canon d40 digital camera


You may have identified your own problem.

Your camera is either a Nikon d40 or a Canon EOS 40d (aka Digital Rebel), there's no such thing as a Canon d40.

If your Quantaray flash has the wrong brand dedication module on the bottom for your brand then it won't work properly (if at all).

If this is not the cause, then please be more descriptive: does the flash power up at all, will it work with other cameras, do other external flashes work on your camera? You may just need to go into the menu and enable the hotshoe.

Click here as well if you lack an operation manual: Quantaray products are always a pain to find manuals for as they're badge-engineered models supplied in the USA by Ritz/Wolf. The trick is always to find what the individual product is usually sold as. In your case, it's a ProMaster FTD5700. Page 2 of the manual will help you to identify which dedicated module you need for this flash to work with your camera.

I hope that I've helped, if not then please report back with additional details, or if I've helped you to solve your problem then please take a moment to rate my answer.

Will my qtb-9500a work on hotshoe of canon digital rebel 350


Yes. The trigger voltage is typically less than 5v so it is safe to use.

The bottm of the flash a portion of the connection is broken. Can it be repaired?


I presume you refer to the hotshoe foot?

Well you can try superglue bit it may not last the distance! It is surprising how much pressure is applied to these to just fit them and keep them on the camera I have tried gluing one and it lasted a day each time Got too annoying so i bought a replacemenet

Is a flash compatible with my camera?


Most Canon Digital SLRs use the ETTL metering system. I can't find any decent specs or manuals on the net about this flash whether its ETTL or TTL. I could find models that are specific to Canon and Nikon, so check that first too.

Also be wary of the flashes trigger voltage. A voltage too high might fry the camera when its mounted on the hotshoe, so see if you can find it in the manual.

You can always use this flash off camera in full manual mode. To find out more go to www.strobist.com or go to the Strobist Group on www.flickr.com

Hot shoe plastic section broke on flash unit


I managed it by buying a broken (non-working) F32X from an auction service for something like 5 bucks. I just made sure (by looking at the photos) that the hotshoe was intact.

Here's how to disassemble and replace foot (I got to this by trial and luckily no error ^^).

  1. Unscrew 2 small screws located under the battery flip cover.
  2. Put the lamp (moving part) in the upright position.
  3. Unscrew 1 small screw above the infared sensor (below the main lamp part which you moved to the upright position).
  4. Remove the cover of the infared sensor by gently pulling forward.
  5. On two sides of the infared sensor there are two small clips which hold the 2 casing pieces together. Pull them away from the casing just a tiny bit and use something to keep them in this position (I used 2 small nails). Then pull the pieces apart gently.
  6. Just behind the hotshoe casing you can see a small plastic inset -- place a screwdriver sideways between this inset and the hotshoe to help you separate the two casing parts. Be careful when doing that, don't use too much force, wiggle the casing instead to make this easier (this is the most tricky part).
  7. When the electronics is exposed, there is a single screw in the middle of the motherboard. Remove the screw and gently pull the motherboard away from the casing. You do not have to pull it all the way or disconnect any cables, you just need to make sure the bottom battery connectors are pulled out of the casing just a little, because then under the two middle battery connectors (looking from the top, as if you were putting the batteries in) you can see two screws!
  8. Unscrew those two screws, and the hotshoe will come apart. Pull it out gently and remove a single electrical connector that connects it to the flash.
Do this in case of your working lamp (with a broken hotshoe) and your replacement lamp (with a good hotshoe), and just move the good hotshoe to your working lamp.

Took me about an hour to do this (most time was spent on trying to figure out how to disassemble the lamp), and the lamp works perfectly.

Warning: better test disassembly on the replacement lamp, since even if you break it, all you need it for is the hotshoe, so you can practice on it. Only after you learn how to disassemble the F32X do this on your working lamp.

Hope this helps!

Quantaray QDC-NK i TTL Digital Flash Module


The Quantaray Digital NK Module has a small tab on the side of the raised boss that the 8 pins sit on that prevents it from mounting on the QTB-9500A. It's intentional- the NK Digital Module is made for newer Quantaray flashes only. You'll need the older-style AF NK Module to attach to the QTB-9500A.

Fuji s7000


Thanx to forum input I found a Quantaray qb-350a flash with a single contact on the hotshoe. By turning on "external flash" in the Fuji s7000 allows the Q350 to work beautifully and for about $40 bucks. It also works on earlier Fuji's like the 6200.
Thanx

How to replace LCD monitor/screen in an Olympus C5050 camera


Easy, remove the 9 screws that hold the rear case and pull the case apart,.remember there are 4 screws under the hotshoe base and 4 under the memory door and one under the USB cover. You need to pry and slide the hotshoe base back with a slim screwdriver and youll see 4 screws, remove the rear ones. There will be 2 ribbon cables attached to the rear case, the LCD and the buttons. These pull out carefully with gentle pressure. The LCD can be removed with screws and another ribbon cable connector that needs to be unclipped and then removed. replace LCD, Put it back together and make sure the ribbon cables are fully seated. Good to go.
