External flash problems

I have a sunpak auto 431 external flash that I am trying to use with my Nikon F65 and I cant seem to get the flash to work.

Ive tried it with a Nikon D40 as well, and the flash still isnt working.

Is there any help you can give on why this could be happening?

Thanks.

Sarah

Sounds like the external flash is being triggered by the pre-flash.

On the D40 set the flash mode to manual. On the F65 set the flash mode to Standard TTL.

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.
