Re: Loose synch leads (3.5mm Elinchrom)

Another continuation......
After the new 3.5mm mono cables arrives - I was STILL experiencing temperamental firing issues with the old Elinchrom heads.
Sockets did definitely feel loose compared to what, a headphone jack, should.
So ordered some 3.5mm mono sockets on ebay (£6.99 for 5 - we have 3 lights).
Just arrived, replaced 2 of the 3 lights and they work a treat.
3rd is on client site - will swap out and repair.
Been a bit of a saga in terms of diagnosing the issue! ha
(also faulty cables and head with internal trigger)

3.5mm mono sockets, solder version (v similar to PCB version in the Elinchrom )
