News flash! YN-560 zoom FIXED

Incredibly, I fixed the flash on my YN-560 at the suggestion of a helpful commenter. :-O  (Kindly stand up and be recognized, sir... :) ).  It wasn't as easy as I thought it might be but was not hard either.  I will post shots.  Caution: I don't know if the fix I did will work for other YN-560 units with zoom issues.

UPDATE: Link to repair here:

    I hope you took "well lighted" pictures.. you are a strobist.

  2. The steps I used are here:

    Warning: the lighting on the repair pictures suck. Shame on me :(
