I recently purchased the Wein PN Peanut Slave and have been experiencing problems with it. I would appreciate if you could diagnose the problem and let me know, is the slave defective?I have two old but well functioning flashes, a Vivitar 283 and a Vivitar 2500. The Peanut fits easily into the 2500, but it does not fully insert into the 283. I am afraid to force it for fear of damaging either the 283 or the Peanut.In addition, when using the Peanut in the 2500 the flash is triggered only about once for every 5 or 6 flashes of the 283 and there is a noticeable delay (about 1/10th second) between the 283 firing and the 2500 firing (I tried firing the 283 from both its own flash button and from my camera at the standard sync. speed of 1/60th second). Both flashes operate properly when each is plugged directly into my camera with a pc cord (there is no hot shoe). While testing the Peanut, it was always within a few feet of the primary flash and it did not matter whether or not the Peanut was facing the primary. I have another flash which has a built-in slave and operates only as a slave. That flash is triggered instantaneously and works every time. I tried the Peanut plugged directly into the flash pc socket and into pc cords which were plugged into the pc socket.

I'm afraid I can't be of much help. I tried the Peanut slave with the Vivitar 283 but immediately found that the plug type would not fit the flash receptacle and thus returned it before using it. My Vivitar 283 is ancient -- I understand later models had a different place of manufacture and output voltage -- the latter an issue with putting film-based flashes on the hot shoes of digital cameras that can be damaged by excessive voltage. So I am currently not using the Vivitar 283 -- although it is a durable and excellent flash -- with any digital camera without a PC connector.
