if the wireless transmitter is still working and also the focus assist beam still comes on, then perhaps it's just a cosmetic defect, shouldnt be a big prob... send it in to respective svc ctr to repair loh...

check ur hot shoes mount?

i bought oone yongguo 460 II from ebay. sometime in feb this year.it was working fine

3 weeks back, as i was careless, aand drop the flash light from table to floor.the defect is my red plastic cover broken. it was still working fine.

i mount it on lightstand. working fine

last week. as i mount it on dslr. the relase got stuck on hot shoe.
no happen how i use brtual force. i am unable to release the yn460 off.

in the end. i took small screw driver to dismanlte the flashlight.
the lock spring stubborn stay there.. well i still have no gut to mount back on hot shoe..
it still work well on optical trigger. but the sensor i am unable to mount properly

rule of the game. always be careful with ur gears. if fall . check it well.

If you want to get it repaired, send it back to your agent / service centre.

If the crack doesn't affect performance, you can consider not repairing it.

problem with not repairing is im afraid of exposing it to the elements. may corrode the insides over time. guess ill get it fixed soon :D

It functions not a problem than just stick back the cover yourself.
