In Topic: Nauticam vacuum and leak - red light after startup

10 November 2018 - 07:08 PM

Ive tried 4 different batteries so the odds on all 4 being faulty id have thought are slim.


After on/off switch and general fiddling, so far after 5-10 mins i can get it to come on and work.  Once working it generally stays working.


That said on dive 1 today on the dive i got a brief (2 second) flashing red LED but then went back to green and stayed there.


Im not getting any audible alarms here with this at all.  Ive inspected and checked the moisture probe pins and they look fine.  No obvious signs of corrosion on the wires of PCB that i can see (its a newish housing).


Admittedly i havent taken the entire system out of the bulkhead to inspect yet as im on a boat with limited tools and time so maybe that'll be the reluctant next option.

I'll give it a go later but i dont think its that as i can fiddle for 10 mins or so around the battery area and then it usually works normally (until i turn it off again).

I get no audible alarm.

In Topic: Interesting Reflection

25 March 2018 - 12:14 AM

Hey everyone - I'm quite new to underwater photography, but not to photography in general. 
I just took my new Ikelite housing, along with a Tokina 11-16 lens in an 8" dome port out for a spin yesterday in some pretty silty fresh water.  I ended up with some pretty interesting shots, however an interesting occurance resulted in most of my photos.  There is a reflection of the front of my lens in almost all of my photos.
After calling Ikelite, I was told that I was shooting at an 'improper angle' to the sun, and that if I correct that, it should be rectified.  Although I can see the validity to this, I find it hard to believe that all 66 photos were taken at the same 'improper angle' to the sun.
I've gone through a couple other ideas in my head, and I'm left with only one thing I think may help.  So to make a short story long..... Should I remove the UV filter from the lens!?!?!?
Thanks for any advice!

I used to get this all the time with my 8" dome ikelite using a 10-17 and 10-22.
Never found a fix other than permanent marker on the lens writing. I never fully cured it.
