Question about Vivitar 283 Flash
Don't buy anything before you shop the bay and craiglook.com (don't put in a zip code) for another flash. Often a used flash is reasonably close to the price of a new part. Your flash may be worth the repair, I am not looking at it so I can't say.
If you want to get a part, and if the flash is a few years old, there will be broken models for sale everywhere. And Photo.net has a forum for everything related to cameras. I often get parts sent to me free even though I am willing to pay for them. Someone will have the part you need.
Other than that you can call the maker and ask if they will send you a part free. I am amazed by how many companies are willing to send free parts on things that should not have broken. It never hurts to ask.
