I have an Arriflex 16 SR that has stopped working. When the red test button is pressed the motor rotates the shutter and the pull down claw engages. When the camera switch is moved from stop to ready the internal light meter turns on. So far everything functions normal.
However, when you flip the switch to run, the motor does not start and a red light comes on inside the view finder. The battery is fully charged tested it with a multi meter, and tried a different battery to be sure.

The owner’s manual says that a red light will come on in the view finder when the camera doesn’t have enough power to maintain a sync speed.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Does anyone know what the cause of this problem would be? Could it be that the voltage regulator is broken, or maybe the sync crystal is malfunctioning?
Does anyone know where a more detailed camera manual for this camera can be found? Like a troubleshooting or service and repair manual.

Sounds like a fault that needs proper investigating by a trained camera technician. It could be a number of possibilities, including electronic component failure, pretty hard to diagnose over the internet.

There isn't a "repair manual" for this kind of problem, just exploded drawings, circuit diagrams and a knowledge of how the mechanical and electrical parts work together.
