Canon Speedlite 155A repair guide : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

I have a Speedlite 155A which does not work, the only symptom being that nothing happens when I turn it on. (Yes, I've put in new batteries!) Can anyone direct me to a repair manual or at least tell me how to open the case so I can check it out myself?

I haven't a clue, but be careful, as there is a potential danger from the large charges/voltages produced inside (OK, not so great if it hasn't been powered up in ages), I don't think they were ever intended to be user-servicable. Also, unless you're experienced at repairing electronic items, how are you going to know what's wrong, once you have opened it up? So, basically, why bother when replacements are so cheap?

Scott, Did you clean all the battery contacts too? Sometimes they look clean, but have a thin layer of crud that keeps them from working. Good luck, Kirby
