Hey guys, I have a16BL and I need to connect power up to it for test purposes.  I have none of the power cables.   I need to find out which pins supply the power to the motor.  Does anyone know where I can get a wiring diagram for one of these?  I have looked and looked 'til I'm magenta in the face.  I have several 'user' and 'owner manuals', but no repair information.  If everything is copacetic with this camera, I'm selling my 16S.

Thanks!

I have complete wiring diagram in German and rather difficult for someone that is not engineer  to extract what you want from it. I can photo it for you but it is large like 48 X 24 inches.  If you just want a cord for bl I am certain I can find one in my garage somewhere,

Isn't it standard 4-pin XLR?

It's the camera I know least about, but I do have some old notes on the 16BL written by a technician I trained under years ago.

 

According to those notes the power socket could be 9 pin Amphenol, 7 pin Cannon or 4 pin XLR.

 

If it's an 9 pin Amphenol, pins A and J are wired to positive 12V, pin B is negative, pins C ,F and K are bridged. 

 

If it's a 7 pin Cannon, pin 1 is negative, pin 4 positive 12V, and pins 3 and 6 are bridged.

 

A 4 pin XLR is pin 1 neg, pin 4 pos.

Wow man, if you have a cord, I am definitely interested!

Thanks.  It's the 9 pin Amphenol. So I wire pins A and J with Pos. and B is Neg?

9 Pin Amphenol.
