No mention of getting an electric shock while removing the case.Bit of a tingle anyway.I held the camera in a plastic bag after that.

This will probably not be replied to, but is there any reliable way to discharge the flash capacitor? Got shocked once, but I thought it was already discharged lol.

Connect a 1k ohm resister between the black and red wire from the capacitor. Give it a few moments to discharge through the resistor. Don't discharge the capacitor without a resistor as you run a good chance of destroying the electronics. Wear your latex gloves too.
