    i havnt used the flash on my pentax k1000 in a while, and it used to work, now it just doesnt work at all, or atleast i think its not. if it helps the model of the flash is the AF160Sa.....theres no seperate battery for the flash that must may be out of juice or does the hot shoe supply the power?

    Your flash has to have some type of power, all the hot shoe does is give off an electric signal to tell the flash to fire.

    edit: According to the internets, that specific flash uses two AA batteries.
