Question about Sunpak Auto 555 TTL Flash
Using Energizer 2300 mAh fully charged batteries. Fires normal and consistent a few times then it does what it wants to.
Did you find a solution? ive experienced a similiar problem. i think i might need to buy new flashes.

Your strobe is faulty and needs repair at a trained service center. The actual culprit may be the voltage converter circuit that supplies the high voltage to the flash capacitor, or the voltage divider that drives the ready lamp and, at the same time, makes triggering possible.

I had a DX-12R for some time several years ago until it was stolen. I loved it. I recently purchased a used 8R and it is fine but I still like the 12R better. Especially the preview light feature. Ok. Make sure the batteries are all good, one bad apple does spoil the whole bunch. Check your cord connections and finally make sure the hot shoe connection is clean. That last one was usually the culprit when I had problems. Note that your hot shoe on your camera could also be going bad. I had a Ricoh that did that, I thought it was the flash. Good luck.

Try to trigger it by shorting Center of shoe mount and the side terminal with a small wire.If it is firing the flash is ok.
If not there is open connection in the sync jack ,due to repeated inserting of sync chord.The springy part inside is not going back to its normal position.
You can fix it your self by opening it(adapter only)
.If you are new to this take a photo of the wiring immediately after opening the shoe adapter to see the position if any wire breaks later on.
Do not give up .383 is great flash

I have made Nimh pack which has 2900MAH cells and is very fast recycling.But beware that it will heat up Xenon(it needs cool down time before you fire full power repeatedly.Also its capacitor will be short life due to electrolytic(Same as fast battery chargers ruins the battery life).
And when its production is seized,I care it more.
