Help! Broken AF360FGZ

Hi all,

I've had a bit of an accident with my AF360FGZ which has ripped the hotshoe connector from the main body of the flash. The flash still works in wireless mode, but I'd like to be able connect it to the camera for high-speed sync and general convenience. There are five coloured wires (brown red orange green yellow) coming out of the flash body and five solder connections on the hotshoe bit (see picture below) so it shouldn't be too hard to fix. I was just hoping someone might be able to tell me which colour wire goes to which pin?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Thanks Clem,

from the looks of it I think that's a 540 rather than a 360, just have to hope they use the same colour wires!
