I'd also suspect the batteries are a likely fault. Lets also not
forget that LCD screens can "freeze" in very cold weather making them
appear to be non functional, very dim or slow to respond. Though if
the whole flash wasn't responding at all, I suspect the batteries did
get too cold. (I always kept AA's in the freezer to extend their
shelf life but now I use Sanyo Eneloop rechargeables which keep their
charge very well.)

PhotoArtKC I could still navigate the flash menus with the buttons and the thumbwheel. The crazy thing is that I could change the mode from TTL to A, M etc but the damn thing wouldn't fire (last night that happened again). I'm sending it in for a check.
