Is my Yn622 trigger dead?

I have a pair of 3 year old yn-622 mark 1 triggers. One of them started acting up recently. I mount it on my camera and am able to change an off camera flash's setting on my camera. But I am not able to fire the off camera flash. I replace it with my other yn622 trigger and it fires the off camera flash. I tired to factory reset the trigger, replace batteries etc. nothing helped. I am wondering if anyone else has run into this problem before and if there is a way to fix it?

Sounds like the firing pin is not making proper contact. Have you tried to press down the pin down a few time and make sure it springs back the the proper height? Clean the contacts on the camera hot shoe would help too.

I tried to press the 'test' button and it wont fire the off camera flash either. I guess the trigger is dead. Should I pick up the v2 of the yn622 or stick to v1? The v2 looks the same as v1 except with the addition of a usb port, which I am unsure if it is needed.

I was just looking at the V2 last night. I think it is better because of the 1/8000 sync. And you can update the firmware...

I have had the 622 seem to be working fine until time to fire the flash and then fail to do it. Changed the batteries and it fired the flash.

These things can be touchy with low power.

Yes that too. I never go above 1/1000s so I dont think that will be useful for me. As for firmware update, what exactly can be done?

Yes already tried swapping batteries from the working one to the non working one. Also tried some newly charged batteries.

maybe for future compatibility with new flash or bodies... and you never know if tomorrow, the chinese has managed to pirate :lol: a new technology and they want to implement it on their units :-D...
