I am trying to make an old SB-101 useful. It is in good shape, and I can make it flash using the TEST button. However, when I try shorting out each combination of the three pins (two at a time, taking appropriate safety precautions), I can't make it trigger.
Am I just not getting the pins deep enough, or do these work on a different principle than PC sync cables? Does anyone have the specs for the 3-pin Nikonos cables?
