SOURCE: sunpack 544 flash

There can be more than one reasons for that.
1. Broken wire at sync terminal.
2. Electronic sync issue:
2.1. Faulty sync thyristor (CR02).
2.2. Faulty trigger transformer
2.3. Any other passive component around the previous two.
3. Broken sync lead to the flash tube.
4. Broken leads to the main terminals of the flash tube.
5. Electronic fault at main thyristor.
5.1.Faulty main thyristor.
6. Faulty flash tube.
7. Other, like crack on the PCB.
Good luck! :)
If you happen to decide to part with your faulty flash, please consider to write me first, I offer it a good home... best regards, Laszlo klaci(at)index(dot)hu

SOURCE: flash works intermittantly

There can be more than one causes.
If intermittent work mean that in, at least, some cases the strobe fires normally and the internal sensor controls the power as it should, then the most probable cause is a diry contact at the either end of the PC cord or a broken wire in the cord. Clean with any gentle method or disconnect-reconnect a dozen times in order to rub off the oxidization, or replace in the latter case.
If it doesn't help then the culprit can be a cold solder joint inside the flash, the repair of which asks for a technician with skills.
If the intermittent work means that the flash always fires, but sometimes with the correct power and sometimes with full power, then the case is more sophisticated, and surely needs a repair of internal circuitry. See the description of such issue for a Sunpak 522 elsewhere in Fixya
Good luck, Laszlo

SOURCE: Will my sunpak PZ4000 flash trigger voltage harm

The Sunpak PZ 4000 and 5000 were made for film cameras. I have one for my EOS film cameras. It works just fine. I know this series of flashes was not made for the digital cameras. It likely will not harm your camera if the flash is designed for your camera brand. But some functions will not work.
For example, do not use a flash for Minolta on a Nikon.
You risk damaging your cameras electronics or frying the flash.
Get their PZ 20, PZ 30, PZ40 or PZ 42X for your digital camera.

Sunpak Auto 422D Thyristor won't flash

It should work automatically once connected properly, in case it doesn't work something is not right, obviously. Did you try it out with a different camera? That could help you in figuring out the problem.

I'm looking for the manualfor the Sunpak 433AF Flash unit

TOCAD is the USA distributor for Sunpak. go to their website and email them. Tell them what you have (the Sunpak 433AF for Nikon) give them your address, and offer to pay postage to your home.
You might also check Ebay. It seems there's always someone who sold the flash last year, couldn't find the manual, but found it while looking for something else, and is now selling it on Ebay ,LOL.
