AF400FTZ Failed

I have an old AF400FTZ flash which appears to have failed, it will not charge. I have left brand new AA's in it for several days to no avail, I have also tried this with fully charged NiCd's. I do get an occasional flicker on the ready and check lamps when turning on the power - then nothing.

Any suggestions? or do I assume this has failed beyond repair.

I'm not too worried about this, as I have other flashes, but it's been a useful flash over years and I'd be sad to see it go
