Does the flash discharge at full brightness correctly when you press the pilot button? If not, try a different set of batteries?

I guess the flash is malfunctioning. What a bummer, I don’t know if I should try to fix it or just try to return it, which will take a while.
Contact the seller and request replacement based on the failure to fire in manual mode. Here in the U.S., most sellers will replace out of their stock, no questions asked, and will also cover shipping for both the return and the replacement. With any luck, your seller will offer you similar courtesy.
