Question about Sunpak Auto 544 Flash
Is their a correct setting? I don't understand the dials and how they match with my nikkormat N.or my nikon f100. How do I set up the flash, is that the problem?? This is a Sunpak 544 Gene
There can be more than one causes.
If intermittent work mean that in, at least, some cases the strobe fires normally and the internal sensor controls the power as it should, then the most probable cause is a diry contact at the either end of the PC cord or a broken wire in the cord. Clean with any gentle method or disconnect-reconnect a dozen times in order to rub off the oxidization, or replace in the latter case.
If it doesn't help then the culprit can be a cold solder joint inside the flash, the repair of which asks for a technician with skills.
If the intermittent work means that the flash always fires, but sometimes with the correct power and sometimes with full power, then the case is more sophisticated, and surely needs a repair of internal circuitry. See the description of such issue for a Sunpak 522 elsewhere in Fixya
Good luck, Laszlo
