You can take any xenon flash bulb from an old camera and put it in your camera. If it won’t fit, hot glue the reflector/bulb to the top of your camera or near the lens.
If connecting a new flash bulb won’t cause it to fire, you can take the high voltage board out of a similar camera and install it in yours and wire it to the old flash tube.
Started making frightening and loud pops that sounded electrical. It worked for a while while still popping, but now is completely burnt out.
At least the camera still works!
I’m trying to figure something out….
and fix the flash. The first step is to use a voltmeter to see if the big capacitor is charging. Don’t touch the terminals on the capacitor with your hands as this is the high voltage part of the camera that the manufacturer warns you about.
Or carry an alternate illumination source like Dan Molter. He sometimes uses some kind of portable LED work light.
