    I've got a strobe that I bought secondhand off eBay.

    I used it once or twice when I first got it with my old camera and it was fine, but when I got it out to take on a trip a couple of years it was dead as dead thing.

    I suspect the capacitor has failed as it no longer whistles when you turn it on, but I couldn't find anyone who would even look at it, because "It's Scuba gear!".

    So, does anyone know of anywhere that repairs strobes?

    Cheers.

    How much would you pay to fix it? Someone's time to fix it would likely outstrip the price of a new second-hand strobe.

    Maybe, but I hate wasting things, so would at least like the option.
