How to disassemble Ikelite DS51 strobe

20 November 2016 - 08:33 AM

Anyone with a guide to doing this?

One of my strobes will suddenly just stop firing, and it's killing me now. Must have a look inside before a doctor will have to look inside my casing!! [emoji49]

Sending it to Ikelite is a no-go at the moment sadly.. $$

(Embedding don't seem to work....)

Started doing some video with my Nikon D3200, and not just photography.
Hope you like it. Recodings from just a 60 minute dive.

Info and history in the video description.

Ikelite strobe issue - bypass TTL

17 November 2016 - 06:48 AM

So i rebuild my dual sync ttl cord, soldering all ends and joints due to suspicion of possible bad connection making on of my strobes (both DS51) acting up and not flashing. (Also cut a few inches of all ends of the cord)
I also "in field" bypassed the ttl circuit by soldering the black to black, and white to white inside the housing, just to rule out possible trouble in the ttl circuit.
Did a test dive yesterday and it still seems i have to put the knob on the back of the housing into manual setting, for actually using the strobes in manual..
I kinda figured i had bypassed all of this :?
Anyway, one of the strobes is still acting up abit. So just wondering, if i disconnect all wires beside the black and white, will i mess things up or get a "true full manual" flash signal from camera to strobes?

Note: the acting up strobe is on the secondary side of the sync cord (non red marked)

Camera is Nikon D3200 and dual DS51 strobes with dual ttl sync cord.

Thanks
