Anyone know where I can get elinchrom lights repaired in North of England ?
One of my Elinchrom 500s gave up the ghost part way through a recent shoot - all the switches are illuminated, model lamp on but just won't fire.
Thanks in anticipation
Norm

Sounds like your flash tube is on it's last legs. Usually it starts by not firing at one or other end of scale try minimum power then maximum power if it fires on one but not other it will confirm flash tube.

Recommend EHFFS, 107 Cambridge Road, Great Shelford, Cambs , CB22 5JJ

Don't 500s have user replaceable tubes?

It's about £80 for a new one and about 5 minutes to fit.

TFC have a repairs price list on their website.

If there is a lot of 'blackening' particularly at the ends of the flash tube its a sign the tube is 'on its way'.

Many thanks to everyone who provided info.
Have used Elinchrom lights for over 15 years and this has been my first problem - hence no repair contact details.
Hopefully I'll now be able to get problem resolved quickly.
Thanks again
Norm

I bounced one of my lights last year. Rang TFC in Leeds several times but couldn't get them to pick the phone up and I am still waiting for them to return my voicemail - must have a backlog!!!! Terry at Northern Photo repaired the head and I had it back within two days. He's semi retired so works because enjoys it. Nice bloke, keen price and advice comes free.
