    Head tested as OK. Pack LED's work and some of heads indicator lights also come on, but will not fire at all, either with the test button or from PC.

    I can't remember if the flash should make a noise when it recycles, but it doesn't. Pack bought secondhand untested.
    I know very little about electronics, however I did wonder if the capacitor was dead. When I opened up the case there was no obvious signs of degradation to the cap. or anywhere else that was obvious to me.
    Any ideas anyone.

Is not working properly


A good possibility is the zoom head is causing the clicking sound. As we zoom the flash, the inside of the head moves to the back and forward. Gently tap it a few times see if that helps. My guess is it needs servicing.

Metz 44AF-4C ready light will not come on or flash,all others functions work


If the unit will flash at all then you may be able to "re-condition" the capacitors or condensers. If so, then make sure you have a fresh set of batteries and trigger the flash in manual mode full light. As the capacitors heal and are able to hold more energy the light output will increase. If you are able to recover them then the voltage level will increase to where the light comes on. Otherwise they likely need replacing and this is work best left to a technician. This work is also expensive so you need to decide if it is worth it or simply replace the unit. Good luck.

Where can I find a replacement flash head tilting/rotating lock-release button?


Hi Kaye, I reckon the only place you'll get one is from a Nikon Service Centre, or a discarded/broken SB600 from a camera shop.

have you checked that the diffuser is pushed fully home in its slot until you hear a click - this diffuser is for close-up work only and dissables the zoom flash

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.

No the 283 is not compatible with your camera. The 283 is manual only and not TTl. The canon flash is also not compatible with your Olympus. You need an olympus compatible flash.

What is the trigger voltage for Pentax AF 500FTZ


When using a digital camera with a flash unit of unknown trigger voltage, you are risking the life of your camera. Excessive trigger voltages can disable the cameras internal circuitry to the point where it is totally beyond repair.

I do not have, in my files. the trigger voltage for the specified flash unit. I only have the specs for larger portables and studio flash gear.

A simple test , however, will reveal the exact trigger voltage. If you have a multi-meter or a DV voltmeter with a 250 VDC range (just to be in the safe side) you can preform this test at home or an electronics service technician can do it for you in a few minutes.

The test lead are placed across the synch contacts on the foot of the unit or plugged into the sunch socket if the flash unit has one. If the reading is more that 4 or 5 volts you can still safely use the flash with the aid of a protector device which goes in between the flash and the camera. Theses are available at better camera shops and dealers.

Getting out of the Custom Functions menu


Hi,
Had the same problem, in the custom function menu choose C.Fn-05 and 0. This should rreturn your flash metering mode to E-TTL. Worked for me give it a try.

60ct4 metz flash head


Hi Canday, As the connections are OK, it is possible that a lead inside one of the wires is broken. You don't say if it powers up or not, so it is very difficult to give more specific advice or diagnosis. It is a professional unit, so I suggest you take it into a top camera shop for their advice. Good luch, John Hannah
