580ex II fails to turn on

Hi,

looking for some suggestions as to what has likely failed in my 580ex II.

I went to use this afternoon, the first time in about 2 years and it failed to power on. I have changed the batteries 3 times and all batteries test okay.

I think the power switch  might have failed, but why?

Next its it worth getting repaired or just use the 430ex II and 470ex instead?
