The charger circuit (old telefunken IC or 555) is located at the pcb board with almost no components on it. The charging goes trough the X and Ground and the switch.
Use an extern charger for 3-6 cells NiCD or NiMh.
Have fun to remove all the parts and figure it out how the 2 boards are connected :lol:

Mail me for the schematics, don't find them anymore on-line. Schematics are a lead because they are from an older type.

Now another SF3000 question. I have a Subtronic SF3000 that i replaced the batteries on. The charging circuit always shows that the battery is full with the led on the back lit up. Also the SOS flashing or when triggering the flash there is only a very weak flash. Any ideas what i should look at?

Problem with non flashin or non SOS was short cable to the flash tube and therefore bad contact. The flash is ok now except that the chargin never shows fully charged.


Is this led that goes on when fully charged a function in the IC 555 ?
