Re: Did I wreck my flash?

Do NOT open the flash.  Hot-shoe flash units contain high voltage capacitors capable of delivering a lethal shock.  Unless you are specially trained, and I'm guessing you aren't, in how to deal with high voltage electronics you are trying to commit suicide if you open your flash.

Er... Ive been bitten TWICE by the same SB600. The first bite let me know I shouldn't have been messing around inside. Ten mins later it bit me big style! telling me who was boss :-o . I was shaking like a sh*tting poodle screwing it back together, scared it was gonna bite again
