Re: AF Beam Cover for 550EX Speedlite
I broke a lens once and just went and bought a New / Used Bounce Flash that had a uneversal flash-boot. most cameras have a flash plug in to acommidate Auto Flash Modes.
If You Know how to test Cameras and Adjustable 'Bounce" flashes like yours PAWN SHOPS are a PARADISE.

The part is probably defective and needs to be replaced, or its possible if the camera was dropped it needs to be unplugged and then plugged back in... maybe it's just not making full contact.
If you need the camera repaired, thats what we do, we are a digital camera repair business. Just let us know, we can check it out for you. If you want to buy just the part and try it yourself feel free to contact me and I will see if I can buy just that small piece or not.
