Question about Vivitar 283 Flash
Unit doesn't turn on. Have cleaned contacts as well as I can, and checked batteries. Any suggestions for better contact cleaning...or other advice?
Soak the internal contacts of the battery holder with WD40 electrical spray and leave for a while say an hour it will not harm the electronics but wipe suplus off after giving further cleaning with fibre tipped pen available from most electronic firms the contacts have to be very clean as I found with my flash gun Vivitar 283 and I nearly give it up for lost after the above it is now working fine
