Question about Profoto Cameras

Open Question

I recently purchased the D1 Monolight kit that has two monolights. They worked perfectly until my last photo session. At that time, only one of the lights would trigger the second light when I attached a sync cord from the light to my camera. Today, neither light will trigger the other one. What is my problem and how do I solve it? Thanks for your help. Jerry Stevenson

SOURCE: Canon G2 Powershot suddenly went dead

I read of a simmilar problem - a "zoom brush", caused by a faulty part, number CL1-1006-000. Usualy it appears earlier in the cameras career though... Did you try leaving it battery-less for a bit longer than the short changes? Remove it from all possible power sources(There is a small battery inside the main battery compartment) for at least a few minutes. It should reset it in case its just a system crash. Just be aware that after the reset it will ask you to input date and time, and theres another known bug of most of the buttons freezing after inputing date/time. should be fixed by pressing the display button. Hope you manage to fix it somehow...

Can you play back pictures and is the quality of these ok ? If you can but there is no image in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty and needs replacing.

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time for new batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.
