Does anyone else use the Cactus KF-36 or the Vivitar 285HV (as I'm pretty sure they're the same thing) strobe?
I'm finding that my ready remains permanently on red without ever going to green, let alone flashing red/green 'ready' like the manual says it should. I've tried fresh batteries and tried 'forming the capacitor' as per the manual, but it still just stays on red.
Do you think it is actually getting to full power but not registering, or is it just old and therefore unable to reach maximum power anymore no matter what I do? If that's the case, how do you suggest I compensate the exposures?
Any help would be much appreciated! Cheers.
