Vivitar adapter

Does anyone have or know where, I can get a electrical adapter for a Vivitar 285 Zoom Tyristor, the SB6. This flash has been sitting for MANY years and batteries have no effect on it. Would sure like to get it started again.

Thanks.

I need the same thing for my Metz flash, and found it at B&H yesterday.

So it gave me the idea to look on their site, and they might have what your looking for here

I hope they have what your looking for.

Thanks Stu. I'm looking for a used one cheap because I don't even know if the flash works anymore - it has been sitting there for quite a long time and don't know what happens with electronics in these sitautions.

I do know batteries don't work on it, even though the contacts are clean.
