Figure 1-17. Flash Unit Circuit, Schematic.

(2) Circuit (fig. 1-17). The capacitor charging circuit is closed by inserting a bulb in the flash unit socket. Current flows from the battery through the filament, the capacitor and resistor. The resistor limits the current to a value lower than that necessary to fire the bulb. When the synchronizing contacts of the camera are closed, the capacitor discharges. The flow of current (which bypasses the resistor) is through the filament of the bulb, connecting cord, camera synchronizing contacts, and the rectifier. Ignition of the lamp destroys its filament and opens the circuit.



Section 1. CAMERA BODY

2-1. General

The photographic effects of equipment malfunctions are detailed in paragraph 4-8 of the KS-15{4) Operators Manual TM 11-6720-244-12. Mechanical and optical malfunctions of the camera body are listed in the following troubleshooting chart.

NOTE: Gauges and test equipment should be used at all times; not only to pinpoint the malfunction, but to make certain the equipment is properly adjusted. The camera body should be completely checked, and all malfunctions located, before repair is started.

a. Most malfunctions will become obvious to the experienced repairman by a careful examination of the camera. Other malfunctions may require partial disassembly of the equipment.

b. After the camera has been repaired and adjusted, it should be tested photographically. The final test of any photographic system is its ability to accurately and clearly record information. The processed film should be examined for frame position, evenness of exposure and exposure density, image sharpness and scratches.
