Flash bulbs are obsolete parts of the film era. They were last used in the eighties of the past century, on Polaroids and miniature cameras. Their distinctive characteristics is that they can be used only once.
Metz 58 series, like all modern photo flashes, utilize flash tube.
I have never seen a flash tube exploded or blown. Those installed in brand equipment like Metz are made of quartz glass, are sturdy and withstand rather big stress. However, if it explode, the shattering glass spills render the fragile mirror around the tube and the front window unserviceable, so replacing the tube alone would not be enough. Replacing the flash tube is not that easy though. All three connections are soldered and in order to access them the flash has to be fully disassembled. Manufacturers use dirty tricks in order to hide the screws, linkages and other joints that hold the housing parts together.
On the other hand, flash capacitors that hold rather high amount of energy used to explode sometimes. Unfortunately, such event is fatal for a delicate electronic instrument, I believe it is beyond economic repair, following such an explosion.

If it is still within a reasonable warranty period, I would take it bach to thestore you bought it.

If not, then contact the manufacturer directly as it may be manufacturing defect. If it is, then they should offer a replacement service.
They will be the best to advise on the correct replacement - or supply the part to you direct for a little DIY soldering.

Metz 58 AF with Nikon d90 wont flash


Hi, Bad news for you.

Try this.
  1. put new batteries in flash.
  2. turn flash on off camera.
  3. listen for capacitor to squeal (high pitched whistle). If you hear it it is charging. If not capacitor is bad.
  4. Also should see flash ready light come on. If it does not same as #3 above.
  5. If you pass #3 & 4# above press manual flash/check/test button on flash. No flash means bulb is out. It can be replaced.
Hope this fixed ya. Please rate. Good Luck! Comment back if you need further assistance.
