Canon 580EXII flash is dim
Jun 2, 2014

I have a Canon 580EXII flash that I assume I overheated.. It would turn on and everything on the screen would look fine, but it would not fire....

I sent the flash back to canon for repair and $120 later I got it back.

It fires now but the flash seems very dim compared to the way it was before as well as to my other 580EXII..

Should I just put a new flash tube in it and try that or would there be some other parts that could be bad?
