The bulb has gone on my 585EX. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement (pref UK/EU distributor)? Is it easy to fit at home?

Thanks!

Honestly? Unless you're skilled in electronics and have a soldering gun, OHM meter, tweezers, steady hands, a bunch of micro size screw drivers and know what you're doing. I would just buy another flash.

eBay or Aliexpress. Plenty of listings for Yongnuo Xenon flash tubes. Eg
eBay:
Yongnuo YN-460 YN-465 YN-467 YN-468 II Flash Tube Xenon lamp repair blitz lampe | eBay

Aliexpress:
Popular Flash Yongnuo Repair-Buy Cheap Flash Yongnuo Repair lots from China Flash Yongnuo Repair suppliers on Aliexpress.com

Just find the exact part number for your YN 585 and go from there. Probably a low priced part.

There are also many Youtube videos that show you what to expect from within similar YN flashes if you are game enough to go down the DIY repair path.

My soldering iron is gathering dust, and if I can't make it work I'll probably invest in a cactus system, so it's a 5 punt or 200.

Fair enough. What's the worst that'll happen? It still won't work lol
