Colibri question

Pretty sure that the reason my lighter crapped out is that the flint is done. That being said, since I've never put a flint in anything but a Zippo, I don't know if I need to do anything different. Are all flints the same? Thanks

I don't think they are all the same, but I've read that zippo flints will work since colibri flints are hard to find

Took it into the shop today to have it looked at. Even with new flints it won't spark, and now it won't turn off. Looks like I'll buy a Xikar next time.
