Question about Canon Speedlite 430EX II TTL Flash
I had a battery to leak and one of the terminals is badly corroded. how can you change the battery terminal?

You'd have to open up the flash (I don't recommend) and replace it by soldiering a new one in place. If you can't make you're own contact or salvage/fit one from another source you must send it in for repair.

If the corrosion worked its way in to the circuit board, you have 2 choices.
Get it repaired at Canon or somewhere else.
Buy a replacement.

Make sure you using flash grade batteries and not rechargables. try energiser ultra or litiums or duracelll plus but nothing else. if the charge light is not coming up then most likely batteries. I would take it to your local camera shot and test your 7d with one of thier 430 just to make sure the hotshoe didnt short out the flashgun
