    besides checking the flash tube, check and replace the fuse and test it. use common sense as expected.

    Couple of dollars for that Fuse. If you know where is the fuse compartment (usually at the back where the power plug attached) you can replace it yourself. Good Luck!

    you should have a spare fuse come with you light, anyway, is a low amp fuse, can get from some DIY store like HomeFix.

    btw, also check the fuse on the power plug.

    Hope this help.

    If it could not be switch on, then most likely it is a blown fuse. The fuse looks like this, it is at the back of the light:

    I keep extra cables, sync cords, flashbulbs, fuses, and photoflood bulbs together. Just in case things like these happen. Murphy's law.

    To apply Murphy's Law, I keep 1 extra light, just in case.

    Yes, you can go to Ruby at Peninsula. It is just next to Spinelli's. They will take a week or so if it requires sending to the factory, at least that was how long it took mine.

    But judging from your description, it does sound like the fuse was blown. Check for the spare fuse as per Astin's picture. It is in the rear of the light.
