I have two Ikelite DS160s and one one the light (but not the flash) no longer works.

Is this something I can fix myself or do I need to send it away? What sort of cost am I looking at?
I'm in the UK.

Thanks
Alistair

I would call Ikelite. I have had to call them a few times in the past and they were extremely helpful!

I spoke to Kevin at Aquaphot.

He said it's very unusual for the LED light to fail before the rest of the strobe and it was likely to be my battery. I tried swapping the batteries on the two strobes and this makes no difference so that looks like a red herring. Kevin wasn't optimistic about getting spares from Ikelite but reckons he may be able to do something - I'll probably send it to him once winter sets in properly. I'm not terrifically keen to send it to Ikelite as it's already been repaired under warranty twice.
