I bought a sony H9 as a kit on ebay, and this flash came with it. I cannot sem to get the flash to work with the camera, at least not consistently. It has worked a few times, but not others. And yes, the "ready lamp" showed it as ready to use. Any ideas?
Also, what is the relationship of the flash, and the unit it connects to?
i too own a sony dsc h9. sony h9 does not have a hot shoe and how did you connect both the camera and the flash.
you can use a slave unit with hot shoe to which you can connect your flash unit. now disable your red eye reduction in your sony and click the shot both the popup flash and the vivitar will work fine

You can buy a flash unit for your camera from E-Bay listed under camera parts for your make & model but this may not be the cause of your problem. you really need to have it checked before you start buying parts that you may not need.
You need a set of philips screw drivers size #0,#00 and #000. Buy parts camera with stuck out lens but good lcd from ebay. Then replace the lcd screen and the led back light assembly connected by flexible circuit and flip up connector.
As you haven't said which shooting mode the problem occurs under (e.g. Auto, Scene etc) I can only suggest that you try different shooting modes to gain access to changing the Flash settings. Hope this helps.
