Thanks for your ideas, I went back and worked on some of your thoughts.
My other flashes work okay so that means it must be in the flashes foot.
Here is what I discovered if the flash leans forward it does not work but if it leans back it does, the weight of the flash is what keeps it from working. I wasn't able to pop the top off as I couldn't see how. But by pulling gently back on the flash it would work.
I also found that if it clamps shut, locking it will not work, but if the leaver is put almost all the way closed to hold it in but not locked it seems to work even when angled down. So if I don't lock the flash in it works fine and it seems to be held on good enough so it is more usable this way.
Thanks a lot for your thoughts and input on this matter you were a great help.
