    Okay, here is one very poor picture of the shutter's bi-post flash connector. Yeah, the picture sucks but we don't have a decent digital camera. You can see how the post screws onto a base. I just tried to unscrew one from another shutter; it was not screwed on. Oh well. Time to dive into the junk drawer.

    Good tip! Pun not intended. I tried some newer cords but no go. Older makes sense.

    Solder? Or little clip. Show us what you do. Your image is fine.
