SP1000 X-Sync Problem

Hey everyone, just got an SP1000 in fantastic condition, lightseals recently replaced and everything, but there seems to be a problem with the x-sync socket.

I plug the flash in and it doesn't work on any shutter speed, and I'm sure that the flash is working fine because it works great plugged into my SP500's x-sync socket.

I know it doesn't need the battery to work, because the battery is brand new in the SP1000 and the SP500 shoots the flash without any battery at all.

I'm just wondering if anyone has had this problem with any of thier spotmatic's before and any possible solution?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

first thing would be to look at the socket, clean it, compare it physically to the good SP500 one.
