How to fix a stuck on/off power switch on Canon 420EX external flash
Feb 14, 2013

The "on/off" switch on my Canon 420EX external flash is physically stuck in the "off" position.  I've had the flash for several years.  Even using more force that you'd normally want to use, I cannot get the switch over to "on".  It's stuck.

It seems like a mechanical not electronic problem, so I'd like to avoid spending $50-75 at a camera repair shop for a flash that is today not worth more than $100 probably.

Anyone ever had this problem?  Ideas on how to fix it?
