    • Remove the screws on the bottom of the flash-head

    • Remove all 8 screws which holds the outer case on the joint.

    • Separate the screws from each other - that makes the re-assembling easier

Great guide! Thank you so much for helping me fix my flash! I didn't need additional adhesive tape as it went back with the remainders of the original one and seems to hold up well. I would highly recommend using magnetic screwdriver as I had issues with those small screws going back into the tiny places they belong to. Otherwise, it was an easy fix!

PS watch out for that push button. It has a tendency to jump out :)

Thanks a lot. I can only agree with the comment on magnetic screwdrivers.

Also, notice that there are two types of screws: flat head and countersunk head. They also differ slightly in length.

I had a lot of trouble with wires getting stuck but a few tries and some care help.

Further, when assembling the push button and the rotating mechanisms I needed to pay attention to two tiny taps that fit into one of the two clamshells.

Finally, the tiny switch sensing the diffusing disc panel needed to be seated in two holes. I managed to assemble the flash only to discover that the sensing didn't work.

I hope these comments will help others.

Oh my gosh..I can't believe I actually did this..when I got the cover off, the 'push' button and spring popped off. I thought I just ought to quit while I was barely ahead. I did take it all apart- the instructions were fabulous-the screws I put in ordered piles...apparently they're not the same. I replaced the diffuser panel..it only really goes one way..put all screws back- replaced the batteries, and wa la- it worked. THANK YOU a million times over. Pam

Absolutely outstanding guide! The only way it could have been easier is if you were doing it for me. As others have said, watch for the push button popping out. It took me a minute to find the spring... Thanks!
