HELP!!!! Faulty 580EX (gen. one)

(1/1)

thure1982:
Hello!

Came over two used 580EX (generation one) for about $200 apiece on a second hand site in Sweden (were I live and where that is pretty cheap)
Was planing of having two extra flashes at portraits.

BUT... one doesn't start.
Suspect that I will not be able to return it for cash ...

Advice or tips on what it might be or how to fix it.

Best regards

I'd take it to a repair shop and get a estimate.  It could be a flashtube, or something in the internal electronics. 
 
If you mean it doesn't even power up, I'd first check the battery terminals for corrosion and clean them good.  Use a light to view them, corrosion can be hard to see.  A old unit like that might not be worth repairing.
