Question about Metz 60CT-1 Flash

1 Answer

Flash doesn't fire properly at regular position

Hi, I've just bought a Metz 60CT-4. I was testing bouncing its head at several positions and I noticed that at normal position (90 degrees) it doesn't fire regularly. The pictures get too dark. When I bounce it for any side, the pictures come out right. I really appreciate any help.

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.

If I can help.

I have a metz 60 ct 1 flash gun its not warking auto i think cr3jm trak was burnd i repace those part but still its not warking are there any problem

Sometimes the long slide switch (pcb switch) gets worn with metal particles rubbed onto tracks from the contacts. The switch then has partial shorts and only works on certain positions. The track looks black when this happens. Clean with alcohol and rub vigorously with toothbrush and swabs.

Metz Flash Power?

Hi Tom,

The battery is Metz Accu 60-38 4.5Ah at 6VDC
VRLA Battery 100 20 4010


Any Pb battery at 4.5Ah or higher will do.
Toy & Us sells some of them for kid cars.

My 60CT-1 only fires at full power. Worked fine one day the next time I used the unit it would only fire full power each flash.

Is the top dial set on AUTO?

Is the sensor window clean or obstructed?

Checking both of these may solve your problem. Do you have a Manual for this flash? There are free pdf downloads on the I/Net.

Mating Metz 60CT4 to Nikon D80 camera

The 60CT-4 was not made for digital cameras.
It does TTL on film not on CMOS or CCD sensor.

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

Can't fire properly at 90 degrees

Did you buy this used? Maybe the following problems: wires inside are loose or cold soldered. Flash tube has coated with film coating or flash head(inside)is dirty. Alexander [email protected]
