Buy distilled water.

Try to open the flash apart.

Pour distilled water to unit and blow dry or just set it near sunlight until dry.

Vivitar 3200 Flashgun and Canon EOS 400D


Using Vivitar 3200A flash gun on a DSLR is risky for the following reason. The trigger voltage of a DSLR at flash hot shoe that takes it to its TTL (through the lens) circuit is less than 10 volts, it is about 6 to 8 volts in the recent DSLRs. The trigger voltage generated by Vivitar 3200A at full charge flashing is around 180 volts (max). That is a fatal dose for a sensitive DSLR TTL circuit. This high voltage flash gun will work endlessly, the only damage is to the TTL flash circuit. When you attach a TTL flash to the DSLR after using Vivitar 3200A for sometime, your TTL flash will not communicate with your camera. It will be just another ordinary flash without any auto functions. There is a Wein adapter that you can fix b/w your cameral hot shoe and the vivitar flash gun that is said to reduce the trigger voltage that passes into the camera. Try it if you get it. Without this gadget it is better not to use non recommended and non TTL flashes on latest DSLRs.

5600hs or 3600hs equivalent in other brands


I live in London, England, and have never encountered the brand you mention. However, I can recommend the Metz 48-AF1; it has a Guide Number of 48 and does pretty much everything that the 5600hs and 3600hs do at far lower cost, including the wireless flash which the A2 can work with. It also makes sense as it can be changed to fit any major brand by adding the appropriate adaptor so is highly resaleable. In the UK the basic flashgun sells for around £155 and an adaptor is around £30 extra, but I've noticed on my travels that it's far cheaper when priced in US $.
