Question about Vivitar Electronic Flash 2000 Automatic
This is very sad. I can only suggest to re-examine the battery orientation and check the contacts to see if they are bent or broken.

There is nothing wrong with your flash unit. The regular AA batters are 1.5 v volts each- if 4 batteries are used that is a total of 6 volts for proper operation. The rechargeable batteries are 1.2 volts each and 4 will get you 4.8 volts- thats 1.2 volts short and that is probably the root of our problem .
Try recharging you rechargeable batteries and put the im one more time- if the same problem happens you will have to stick with standard AA batteries. There external 6 volt packs that will work with your flash unit0 the are a bit of an expense at first but you will save on replacement batteries in the long run,.
