Ikelite strobe issue - bypass TTL

Recommended Posts

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

I read your post more as an instruction. I would say if there are only two wires connected it would be what you want. Could there be some interference in the circuitry, maybe best to totally bypass it. My Ikelite circuitry broke when there was a small flood in a strobe. Kevin from aquaphot bypassed it.
