There can be more than one reasons for that.
1. Broken wire at sync terminal.
2. Electronic sync issue:
2.1. Faulty sync thyristor (CR02).
2.2. Faulty trigger transformer
2.3. Any other passive component around the previous two.
3. Broken sync lead to the flash tube.
4. Broken leads to the main terminals of the flash tube.
5. Electronic fault at main thyristor.
5.1.Faulty main thyristor.
6. Faulty flash tube.
7. Other, like crack on the PCB.
Good luck! :)
If you happen to decide to part with your faulty flash, please consider to write me first, I offer it a good home... best regards, Laszlo klaci(at)index(dot)hu

Will a sunpak 544 aoto flash work with a nikon D3000? dont see a way to connect the two


The 544 connects to a camera via the PC cord (in this case "PC" has nothing to do with personal computers). The D3000 doesn't have a PC port, so you have to use something like the AS-15. The AS-15 mounts onto the hot shoe on top of the camera and provides a PC port.

How can i hook my sunpak 544 to my rebel xti without a slave unit reacting from my internal flash?i see no sync plugs to use on the unit. do they make an adapter or something?


All photo shops hold "hotshoe to PC" adapters for a few bucks. This solves your problem, supposed you have the hosehold-to-PC cable that comes with the 544 as accessory. If not, such cable can be obtained at better photo shops or from www.paramountcords.com. You must know that the flash can be used together with your camera only in Aperture Priority or Manual mode (flash set to auto), or as a fill flash (flash set to Power Ratio mode). The 544 has safe sync voltage.

Flash compatibility


According to what I read the sunpak dx-8r is, with the right module, compatable with digital SLRs. Check with B&H photo to get the right module.
