These are not that expensive to buy, the problem is that the parts and service are more than a new one. In any case they use high voltage and you have to use special tools to measure and service the flash circuit. IT might be the flash tube is bad, the trigger circuit is bad, the capacitor is bad etc.
There can be one of many parts which is gone : Flash tube,capacitor,trigger cap.or triggering switch. Warning as it has 330 volts even when battery is removed do not open if you are not aware of the risks. Sunpak 383 contains no bulbs inside.
You can use the Sunpak on a bracket with a "slave trigger" and fire the slave with the Nikon's pop-up flash. I do the same with a SunPak 3600 Auto Zoom. Just remember not to have the red-eye feature operating. Those little slave triggers are only a couple of dollars and I already had few brackets.
