    Does anyone know of a good repair shop near Traverse City Michigan? My Norman P500 power supply died this morning, all it does is pop the breaker. The last time I had it serviced was way back just after I bought it, but there were better resources in SLC for camera and lighting repairs. Now I am in the sticks Michigan. So any info would be helpful.

    Thank you

    You could contact Norman, which is owned by a company called "Photo Control" for the nearest service depot, or ship it to Flash Clinic in New York.

    Thanks for the suggestion David. I did look into the Photo Control thing, but couldn't see paying the shipping on this hefty critter. I did however remember one of my co-workers did electronic repairs in a previous vocation, so I had him look at it , and found out it was a diode that had shorted, so old one out new one in and good to go. Thank you.
