Fixing a 580 EX 1 or a Yongnuo 600 ex? Place where to fix 580?

Hi,

I have a 580 EX flash that had been working well until it stopped firing. I've tried it on multiple working DSLR's and it will not fire on any; although the display reads everything normal. The flash test light does not fire either. It recently stopped working all of a sudden.

I took it to Canon USA in Irvine to have it fixed; but they do not fix products over 10 years old. So if anyone has a recommendation on another place to have it fixed; I'd love any recommendations.

Or I was thinking of getting a Yongnuo 600 to go with my Canon 600 EX-RT for only $125. The 580 has not been my main lightsource, but only a fill or background light; so the cheapest option might work best....although I'd like to keep my (previously) expensive Canon 580 in the works.
