DS125 Beeping

26 July 2008 - 12:16 AM

I have two DS125 strobes and four Nimh battery packs all purchased within the last month.

When the battery packs are connected to the strobes, I hear a beep sound. This beep occurs every ten seconds. The strobes are not even connected to my ikelite housing and this beeping sound occurs. This is not the normal beep/wind-up sound associated with first turning on the strobes. I understand the capacitor wind up sound normally associated with strobes.

I swapped out battery packs, the same thing occurs with each strobe no matter which battery is attached. Regardless of setting (TTL, Full, 1/4, etc.), the beep happens. The only time it doesn't beep is when it is in the test setting. This beep occurs whether the strobes are attached to the camera/sync cord or not. They are not attached now and they continue to beep as I sit here. Leads me to believe it is a strobe only problem.

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

BTW, I've just e-mail ikelite as well.
Figures this happens on a Friday afternoon :blink:

If you have experienced this, please let me know what you're corrective action was.

Thanks in advance
