Thanks for the link - it explains what is going on . That is very helpful.

Now I have to try and fix it.

To both interceptor 121 and eyu.

My ACC button is in, and I have a D7100. I use a fibre-optic connector. There is no problem with the flash synchronising with the camera, its just the strength of the flash that is an issue.  I am not aware of a problem with the ACC button.  I use the flash in manual mode.

 

I have also undertaken a test with both flash guns in exactly the same settings and position, taking shots alternatively - there is definitely an issue with the output of this gun.

 

Please can you explain why a faulty magnet on the ACC button might affect the strength output/control if the flash is firing? That seems a bit odd.

How would I tell if this is the problem, and is it fixable?

The problem is that in manual mode, the volume dial switch has no effect.

 

When testing it, the only way I could get more power was to switch it into auto mode on the top left hand dial. Switching it into STTL or FULL had no effect

 

I understand that it is the 2 bottom switches that are magnet/reed switches ( the spotting light and the pushup/down knob).  Are the other 2 rotary controls, or do they have magnets too?

 

Have you run into this problem and is it solvable?
