HI a bought a tanning bed last night from a tanning salon it was hooked threw a phone line or something like that my hubby brought it home and hooked it up here .now i cant get it to work ,will i ever see it work and how can i get it to work for me.
You would need a by-pass plug or Jumper - or perhaps reprogram the timer parameters. Your best bet is to call AAA WOLFF TANNING - www.wolfftanning.com at 1-866-WOLFF-TAN and give them the make & model of the tanning bed - they repair all tanning beds and carry parts in stock.

If your problem has not been fixed or a solution not found yet then you may consider this. Flash units are built with many tiny parts; thus, when a single component malfunction, it will render the whole unit useless. You mentioned the pilot light is not working - that indicates that power is not flowing through the unit.
Check the filament of the unit - if you notice some brownish stain on either end of the tube, it indicates the filament has burned out. Changing the type of batteries won't make any difference.
the only option you have now is to service the flash unit
To let a flash work in TTL mode the camera and flash must be from or made for the same brand. Like Metz for Nikon, the Through The Lens measuring of the light, will only work with Nikon camera's. If the Vivitar 850 was compatible with Nikon, you only can use it in TTL mode with a Nikon. If you want to use it on another camera, you have to set the flash and the camera to manual. (sync speed is not allowed to be shorter tan the manual of the camera says..)
The hot shoe should have the same connection. most brands do have their own hot shoe. And never use an old flash or speed light in a digital camera, because with the old ones the high voltage can pass through the hot shoe to the electronics in the camera, damaging the camera.
There are many rework stations on the market, and the price range is from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. So it's a matter of your needs and budget.
I suggest you go on line and do a search " soldering rework stations" , and read up on the various models that are available. Amazon is a good site for this, because you can get a lot feedback from people who purchased the products.
Best place for finding Vivitar 283 anything is on e-Bay, I use a gang of them doing my location photography and have several holders preloaded with batteries so when the cycle time starts to get more then I can bare I just switch out the holders.
if you're talking about the plug in knob on the front of the unit... without the knob, the unit will only deliver full power and not try to control the amount of light based on the color coding. there is no way around this. you can, order a new plug in module either from vivitar, on line stores like B&H or probably find one on e-bay.
