Vivitar flash manuals

I picked up a couple of vivitar 285 flash units almost a year ago, intending to use them for some studio flash situations. However I bought them on Ebay and they did not come with any manuals or documentation at all. They seem to work well but I would sure like to get an owners manual so I wasn't always in a hit or miss situtation with them. I wrote to Vivitar almost immedietely after I purchased them and asked for the manuals but they never responded. Does anybody know where I might find operating info on these or does anyobdy have a manual that they either no longer need or could duplicate. I am not looking for hand outs I was willing to pay Vivitar for the manual and I am certainly willing to pay for the manual and or/ the mailing. Thanks

Hi Ken,

I did a search on google, and came up with these posts:

in both of them there's people who have a copy and are willing to email it.

See if your manual is here. They have one for a 285 HV flash, I don't know the difference.
