Flash Not Firing

I have recently purchased a Sunpak Super 383 Flash to use with my K100D. As I am learning how to use it, I have noticed that it will not fire when the camera's shutter speed is set at 200 or faster.

I have the camera is set in manual mode, and I have tested the flash in both automatic and manual mode with no firing.

Is this user error, or do I have a defective flash or camera body?

It's user error. Max shutter speed using flash is 1/180 sec.
