Wireless pttl lost

Hello

I have this issue with my af360 flash, suddenly, after changing batteries i have noticed that i cant select pttl on wireless mode, i can only cycle between manual and auto mode, beside changing the batteries (enelooop) nothing else has been changed on the flash and in the camera, also the modeling test button now flashes a lot more slow than before, like 4fps.
this mean the flash is dying?

what good alternative on flash do you recomend?

thanks in advance

Check to see if the slave mode has been changed from s1 to s2.

That caused the pttl to go away on my 540.

Don't know about the modeling light .

Thank you very much, i have changed the slave mode and now is working correctly again, except the modeling light, it doesn't work like before.
also, i am almost 99% sure that i didn't press the light button the 2 seconds requiered to change the slave mode the first time.

something i forgot to mention, before this problem, the flash stop working, so i thought that the batteries was empty, but now i have recharged it and it took only 1 hour, so something else happen yesterday

Anyway, i really apreciate your advice
