Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash

Open Question

Broken freznel lens

I broke the freznel lens on the front of my flash. I ordered a repair part online. It looks very easy - two screws appear to hold the front of the flash unit together. I should be able to separate the case a little, pull out the fragments of the broken lens and put the new one in its place. Is it really that easy? Is there anything I need to watch out for - switches or wires that I am likely to break when I separate the two halves of the case? I'm also a little nervous about coming in contact with the capacitor (or some other charged part of the circuitry), which I understand is difficult to discharge fully, but it doesn't seem likely that I will find any electrical connections up there behind the lens... I also lost the close up diffuser in the accident, but that appears to be more difficult to repair without serious disassembly - am I right about that? Thank you.

I dropped my canon and the lens touchd the ground and it stopped functioning

Depending on damage that might have been done when you dropped it, you might try this:

Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem might be easy to fix. VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Now power on the camera and see if it works. If not, you might have to send it in for repairs.

Sigma Flash EF-500 DG SUPER

I use one of my cams with a sigma 500 DG-ST in a nightclub

ive done 3 of the hot shoe connectors in the last year

look up sigma's website and find the contact info
give them a call and they should after some arguing ship you out the parts

every time i have ordered parts they try and get me to send it in for repair even though by the time i am ordering the parts the flashgun is already in bits & i tell them this they keep telling me how dificult it is to do...

for the canon fittment do the following

at the base of the flash remove the 4 screws
this removes the bottom section
unclip the wireing harness
there are 2 screws securing a small metal plate remove them

now there are 4 screws securing the small PCB, remove them, you can now take out the boot from the bottom be careful as the pins and the springs will want to come out
pay atention to the locking pin and how its orientated

swap over the broken boot with the replacement then retrace your steps to get it back together
