DISCHARGING OF THE FLASHLIGHT POWER SUPPLY CAPACITOR
The power supply capacitor (C4208) of the FP-707 flexible is charged up to the maximum 300V potential.
There is a danger of electric shock by this high voltage when the capacitor is handled by hand. The electric shock is caused by the charged
voltage which is kept without discharging when the main power of the unit is simply turned off. Therefore, the remaining voltage must be
discharged as described below.
PREPARING THE SHORT JIG
To preparing the short jig. a small clip is attached to each end of a resistor of 1kΩ/1W (1-215-869-119)
Wrap insulating tape fully around the reads of the resistor to prevent electric shock.
DISCHARGING THE CAPACITOR
1 Open the flash. (When the flash doesn't open, refer to "3. HOW TO OPEN THE FLASH WHEN THE FLASH DOSEN'T OPEN".)
2 Refer to page 2-3 to remove the cabinet (F) section.
3 Refer to page 2-3 to remove the cabinet (Rear) section.
4 Refer to page 2-4 to remove the cabinet (R) section.
5 Refer to page 2-11 to remove the EVF section.
6 Refer to page 2-13 to remove the stroboscope section.
7 Remove the insulation sheet of the capacitor (C4208) of the FP-707 flexible.
8 Short-circuit between (+) and (–) terminal of the capacitor (C4208) with the short jig about 10 seconds.
