YS-01 Strobe losing power underwater, fine on land

05 November 2016 - 07:14 PM

So on my dive today my S&S YS-01 wasn't working. It worked intermittently on my previous dive earlier this week. As soon as I'd get in the water, it would act like the batteries had died, even with freshly charged batteries. I was able to replicate the issues on land by pressing on the battery door. If it's uncompressed, the strobe will charge up and give me a ready light. As soon as I press on the door again, it loses all power. I haven't opened it up after this dive as I'm still letting it dry, but when I looked in the battery compartment this morning when replacing batteries, nothing looked amiss. I just returned from a liveaboard a few weeks ago with no issues. 

 

Anyone else had this issue? What should I check to see what the problem is?


WANT TO BUY: Sea & Sea YS-D1 or YS-D2

Looking for a second strobe to compliment my YS-01. I'd greatly prefer a YS-D2, but I would also be willing to buy a YS-D1. Figured I'd look used before buying new. I'd be willing to buy strobe arms and/or a sync cable as well. 

 

Located in the US. 


WANTED: Olympus 9-18mm and Zen WA-100 dome port

10 July 2016 - 04:29 PM

I've got a trip planned in October where there will be much larger pelagic life than where I'm at, so I need some wider angle stuff. I'm looking for an Olympus m. Zuiko 9-18mm lens and the corresponding Zen WA-100 port. I would prefer getting both as a package together, but I'm fine with buying individually as well. 

 

Zip code is 98117 in the USA. Thank you.
