Important Safeguards

When using this flash equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed;
including the following:


Read and understand ALL instructions and specifications before using your Dynalite



Care must be taken when handling the flash heads as injury could occur from touching

the modeling lamp(s) or flash tube(s).


DO NOT operate a power pack or flash head with a damaged cord or if the unit has

been dropped.


If an extension power cord is necessary, a cord with a suitable current rating should be

used. Cords rated for less than 15 amps may overheat. Care should be taken to

arrange the cord so that it will not be tripped over or pulled from the electric source



Unplug the power pack from the electrical outlet when not in use. NEVER yank the

cord to pull the plug from the outlet.


Let flash heads cool completely before putting them away. Loop flash cables in an 8”

to 10” diameter coil when storing.


DO NOT allow power cord(s) or flash head cable(s) to hang on or touch hot surfaces.


To avoid electrical shock hazard, power cords/packs must be properly grounded. DO

NOT attempt to disassemble the power pack. Incorrect reassembly could cause an

electrical shock hazard when a power pack is subsequently used. Take it to a qualified

Dynalite service technician when repair is required.


When the power pack is not in use for one month or more, it is wise to periodically plug

the power pack in and turn it ON for a couple of hours. It is not necessary to operate a

flash head during this “idling” time.

Install the new flash tube assembly by aligning the three connection pins

with the three connection sockets inside the flash housing. Ensure that the

connection pins are aligned correctly and in the proper configuration before

installing the flash tube assembly. Gentle push the reflector/flash tube

assembly until the edge of the reflector is flush with the outer edge of the

flash housing.
