Question about Cameras
My Vivitar 283 (with metal shoe that has AC plug) works fine when fired by itself -- but when I want to use it on my new Pentax K100d (with new wein high voltage protector) using a known to be good Paramount heavy duty PC cord will not fire when camera exposure button is actuated. Any suggestions? Thanks, Morry
The 283 was not made for digital.
It was the very best with the 285 from 1968-1978, for film camera.
On some versions(283 & 285) might work, other may have high trigger voltage.

To test everything except the camera, just short the contacts on the Wein protector. If the flash fires, the problem is in your camera, and maybe the protector did not do its job as good as expected.
