Welcome to the forum.

Have you installed the Yongnuo firmware updating software (YNFlash Updater Install.exe), and then loaded the firmware update file (yn585_usr_core_offical_dfu_1616.dfu) into it?

You would install the software on your *laptop*, Les, not the flash.

Download and run the "YNFlash Updater Install.exe" file on your laptop.

Then follow the detailed installation instructions in the PDF ''YONGNUO Flash Firmware Update Guide.pdf" that is installed alongside the 'YN Flash Updater' software.

I just updated 1 flash and bricked another 1. The bricked one now turns on with yellow screen and the word up. Any ideas what to do?

Forgive my ignorance, I just got my flash about 3 hours ago and haven't play3d much with it yet. Where do I get this update and how would it affect the flash function?
