A good possibility is the zoom head is causing the clicking sound. As we zoom the flash, the inside of the head moves to the back and forward. Gently tap it a few times see if that helps. My guess is it needs servicing.

Loosen the two small screws under the flash on the swivel head. Turn flash on. You may need to twist the head just slightly. Flash bulb moves back and forth in the swivel head when zooming. If you dropped the flash, this may have jarred it from the track. I had the same problem with mine, and the above solution fixed it. Zoom works again and no clicking noise. Let me know.
