Sounds as if there is a malfunction in the flash. The batteries are in the correct orientation, aren't they ?

In your Speedlight you can use 4 AA sized batteries.
Alkaline, Lithium and rechargeable NiMH batteries.
Be sure your batteries are charged, or new. Never use different type together. So all 4 should be same brand, same capacity and same date.
When you did not use the speed light for a long time, two things could have happened. The contacts in the battery holder are dirty, or oxidised or the capacitor for the high voltage has leaked or dried out.
The contacts you can clean if they are not oxidised to strong. Never use sharp tools to sanding paper to clean contacts. Just use a dry cloth. It the contacts are really dirty, put some contact oil on a cotton swap and rub the contacts for a while. Make sure you rub all the oil away, using the dry cloth.
If old batteries, can't make the Speedlight sing, yes you should hear an oscillator, the on / off switch can be dirty or oxidised. If the oscillator runs, but the ready light does not go on, the capacitor is gone. Needs a technician to replace the cap.

To whom ? Yourself or a prospective purchaser ?

Anyway, Fixya does not provide valuations of equipment, even when posted in the correct forum.

Try gently cleaning the electronic contacts on the camera body and the rear of the lens, without touching the rear lens element or the mirror in the camera.

Check your 'C' drive on PC. The path to the software will either be C:\Program Files\ or C:\Program Files (x86) if you have installed it.

If you need to find appropriate software, contact Konica Minolta, its usually a free download for you to install.

Put on proper protection for your skin/eyes, then remove the old ones, clean with some general cleaner or cola(yes like Coca Cola or Pepsi, etc. as it eats corrosion), then replace the batteries with new ones and see what happens!

Most lens have a red spot on them. There is usually a red spot on camera (look on left side). The one on camera body is the unlock and needs to be pushed and held in as you rotate lens red spot towards the camera spot. When they line up you can remove lens. ?
