Totally ripped 580 EX II won't sync
7 months ago

We have number of these flashes and this one was purchased about 18 months ago.  It seemed to be a pain, but nobody really checked it out.  Today I find out that its not syncing at all.  Setting the shutter speed as low a 1/4 second won't even help.  I'm guessing its been like this from brand new.  And of course its out of warranty.  Canon's price to fix it is about the same as the cost of purchasing a used one on ebay.

Any ideas to try resurrecting it??
