SOURCE: METZ 48 af-1 N "err at the place where zoom value displays in LCD

Is seem a little bit strange but it worked for fine me
The problem is mechanical. The zoommirror in the flashhead is stuck. Mostly it is a minor opstacel. That is the reason that sometimes the problem is solved by placing new batteries. The zoommotor has a little bit more power en can overcome the minor opstacel.
When the zoom is blocked it cannot be controled by the stering software and therefore it gives an error.
Solution
1. remove flash from our camera (power off).
2. knok with something hard, I used my fingerknuckle, on the side of your flash head.
3. repeat that for each side (i knocked twice on each side).
4. place our flasher on the camera and power on both.
5. If the problem isn't solved repeat it

It worked for me the first time.

Metz 58 AF with Nikon d90 wont flash


Hi, Bad news for you.

Try this.
  1. put new batteries in flash.
  2. turn flash on off camera.
  3. listen for capacitor to squeal (high pitched whistle). If you hear it it is charging. If not capacitor is bad.
  4. Also should see flash ready light come on. If it does not same as #3 above.
  5. If you pass #3 & 4# above press manual flash/check/test button on flash. No flash means bulb is out. It can be replaced.
Hope this fixed ya. Please rate. Good Luck! Comment back if you need further assistance.

Err at the place where zoom value displays in LCD


Though I am sure your solution may have been fixed already.

The guide that the reflector moves along for the Zoom.. has probably been knocked off position (either the guide/rail or the "runner" of the reflector).

Metz 60-4 flash takes much longer than normal for the ready light to come on to allow me to take another photo.


It is likely the capacitor in the battery pack. If they are not powered up every month, they dry out resulting in long power up and recycle times. You'll need to get it replaced to rejuvenate your 60 CT-4 to its original spec.

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.
