So, it's my fault that my 3 week old 430EX has broken - I did leave it on a tripod which blew over. Twice. But now it's broken and i'm annoyed.
Basically what's happened is, although it turns on and everything displays correctly and makes the sound as if it's re-charging, the pilot light won't turn red and it won't fire (when attached to a receiver, or when pushing the pilot button). It then keeps re-charging itself even though it's not dispelling any of the energy built up, so the batteries are heating up really quickly and the unit is turning off by itself, i'm guessing due to over-heating.
Does anyone have any idea what might be going on or what's happened to the unit? Or more importantly, how this can be fixed? I'm not actually sure what's going on, as the unit itself displays everything and looks fine...it just won't fire.
Any help, input, thoughts or comments would be much appreciated.
