Sigma EF-530 DG Super Flash * non-working * Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma EF-530 DG Super Flash * non-working *

Asking Price
50.00 USD

Item Location
Syracuse, NY (United States)

Item Description
* Listed for $50 because I had to put a number in price section*

Sigma EF-530 DG Super Flash that reads the "er" message when powered on. When it is turned on you can hear it begin to charge up, then it stops and the "er" message is displayed.

From research on the Internet it may be a bad capacitor or MOSFET power supply.

Either way, it's being sold "as is" in non working condition. It was a nice flash when it worked and just stopped working in the middle of being used one day.

Not sure what, if any, value it has but I figured I 'd list it here to see if there was any interest for parts or repair if someone is familiar with this problem.

Worst case scenario I'd give it away to a forum member who paid shipping just so I know it would go to someone that appreciates and supports Pentax (I don't want to give it away on Ebay, I'd rather let it sit in a box in my closet).

Also, if anyone has any input on this issues with this flash please let me know.

Thank you.
