Metz 58 - broken

My metz 58 has broken after only 4 months, two small commercial jobs plus six weddings - no I haven't dropped or knocked it but the flash tube has broken, has anyone else had this problem? I look forward to hearing from anyone who as had this problem! Thanks, JKay

Depending on how old the flash is.. I know that there was a production of faulty flash tubes that were issued in the units.. There was a change to a new manufacture/better quality flash tube than was installed originally.

Not that Metz made the mistake.. the manufactuter of the flashtube wasnt careful in their standards. Replaced tubes have been A-Ok in the units I have seen been replaced.

No. The Metz 58 is not designed as a part of a modular system.

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.
