Only one side fired


Is there a small switch on the unit with which you can select left side flash, right side flash or both sides together ? If so, this may have been inadvertently moved, causing the situation you describe.

Faint lcd display


I'd keep on using it if I were you. As long as the flash is being used exclursively in manual mode then there isn't really a need to be able to see the display.

You have to place your right thumb & press firmly in on the right lower side of the flash (4AA Battery Magazine Cartridge) while holding on the left side with your left hand.

Press firmly in & then slide it down with your thumb.

I have a quantaray qtb-7500a speedlight. It is for a Minolta camera. Is there any way to adapt it to fit Nikon equipment? jim


There are modules available to convert the camera into a Nikon lens. Right below your fill flash on the left hand side of the unit, there is a square button to release your current module and attach the new Nikon module.

Having trouble charging the dry fit battery for the mecablitz 4. Any sugestions.


Make sure the contacts on both the battery and charger are clean. To clean them, use a rubber pencil eraser to shine them up. Do not use any cleaning fluids or abrasives like sand paper as this willonly cause them to corrode more.

After a period of time the dryfit battery will wearout and willstop taking a charge. If you battery is more than 2 years old than it may be time to replace it.

I can't make the flash work,


Are you serious...you don't know how to turn it on? Ever wonder what the on/off switch is for?
Slide the switch from left to right and wait for the 'ready' light to change from red to green...then it's ready to shoot.

Nikon SC-29 REMOTE CORD


Hi Kathy,

Are you ready?

1. Make sure the Nikon SC-29's Red Panel's Lock Switch is set to the Left. Pointing at Left Black Screw.
2. Connect the Nikon SC-29's (Red Panel) to your camera's Hotshoe by pushing it as far as it goes.
3. Turn Lock Switch to the Right (turn CW). This locks down to camera.
4. Make sure Nikon SC-29 (other ends) AF-ILL is set to OFF.
5. Make sure your Nikon SB-800's Lock Switch is set to the left side.
6. Attach your Nikon SB-800 into this Hotshoe.
7. Switch the Lock Switch on flash to the right.
8. When you wants to AF from flash, set AF-ILL to "OFF"
9. For the best results, set AF-ILL to "ON".

I teaches, do repairs, services and modifications on all photographic equipments.

I hope they are helpful to you as well as for any Nikon Photographers using the Nikon SC-29 Cable.

Mine has Autofocus, ITTL, Slave and Wireless Radio Remote Flash.

Sigma EF-430ST not working


This indictates one of 2 condition.
1. Batteries Flat
2. Information Fault.

More than likely the second is your issue.

if you here a whirring sound when the flash starts then your fault is possibly that the inner head in the flash can not move in it chamber to adjust for the focal length of the lens.

You need to remove the 10 screws (5 each side on the head) 1 is located at the front and 4 under the plastic cover at the swivel point of the flash. These are covers are held in by twin sided tape and can be pulled off.

Now in front of the circuit board is a motor and gear - just in front f this is the flash tuble and the chanber - click the tuble back into the chamber and ensure it moves freely.

You can check that all is working now by installing the batteries and turning the unit on - should settle at 28.

Once working reassemble and all should be fine.

Flash doesn't fire properly at regular position


Did you buy this used or new?

If used: neck has broken/shorted wires.
Try fires with the Test Button in A mode with hand blocking sensor and then without. Move head around.
