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.

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.
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.
