I hooked up my BFD to an SR2 today with a stop-start cable and unfortunately nothing happened. Do older SR2's have a problem being started this way. The camera is going to the shop tommorrow any insight would be appreciated.

Cheers

older cameras such as SR2, Arri 3, Bl need constant contact for run. the mon/con switch on the Bartech.

It's a different pin configuration for the SR-II, Arri-III, etc. than the SR-III. I don't know what the pin conf. is off hand, but Jim Bartell would definitely know.

So you switched the Bartech hand unit to Con but no joy. Turn the power off on everything, flip the switch to mom and back to con and try again. If the motor was turning then you know your units were transmitting and receiving. If you are close you can here the receiver click when you flip the run switch so there again you know the signal is getting there. Possibilities include bad cable from receiver to SRII remote switch, bad remote switch on SRII, if there was more then one 11 pin fisher you may have plugged into a power out only one, try the other fisher plug. If the camera will run with a standard remote switch (hard wire) plugged into the fisher then you have to suspect your cable or your receiver. Eliminate possibilities until you find the culprit.

Fischer 11-pin on ARRI 3/BL/SR2 cameras

7 = Run
9 = Grnd
11= 12VDC out

Start/stop with the 11-pin is disabled on the 435/535,etc. (24V cameras)
