    Flexaret Flash Sync Problem

    Hi there, Im new to the forum!
    Looks like a great place...Very Active!

    I just recieved a flexaret V from ebay, but the (Prontor-SVS) flash sync doesn't seem to be working.
    The flash sync arm locks in firmly at M, slightly at X, and at V it slides back towards the X setting. Could this be due to a buildup of grease?

    I tried testing the synchronization in the studio at University, but the camera would not fire the flash when connected via a sync cord on X mode.

    Cold the reason the flash is not firing be related to my first problem? Perhaps the contacts are dirty?

    I like to think of myself as a DIY type of guy. So if its not too hard to fix I would be keen to do it myself.

    Any input is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Julian

    I would definitely clean those contacts, Julian. Then see what happens.
    Thank you. ChrisW
