How to test if the flash tube is broken?
9 months ago

I dropped my strobe (Imapct EX100A, don't ask me how lol) http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/390686-REG/Impact_EX100A_KI_One_Monolight_Kit.html

the other day and the strobe will not flash anymore. It will never charge up because I will never hear the ready "beep". When i press the test button it does not flash. I was wondering if the whole strobe is broken or just the tube? Is there anyway to test it? The modeling lamp is still working fine.  Thanks
