  1. I don't believe so, the moisture sensor starts a very annoying beeping in addition to the red LED flashing.
  2. Thanks. I've reached out to AOI (without a great deal of optimism) for their comments on what I'm seeing. When the housing goes from warm to cold and the pressure warning light activates, I've checked the pressure on the housing and cannot see a difference between where I left it originally and the current pressure. I'm suspecting that the pressure sensor is not temperature compensated and is giving me the faulty results For the time being, what I have is much better than nothing (which is what I had before) Thanks again for your input.
  3. I pull it down by 5-6 psi. Less and it won't start the calibration sequence, more and it complains and won't start the calibration sequence. No temperature compensation mentioned in the specs Is this a common behavior for these things?
  4. I've recently added an AOI pressure/moisture detector to my Ikelite housing and find that it is very sensitive to temperature changes. Setting up in a warm room and then putting the camera outside or jumping into cold water (50 oF) will trigger a loss-of-pressure alarm. Short of letting the housing acclimate, is there anything else that can be done?
  5. This is a uwleakdetector.com in excellent condition. Full details here: http://www.uwleakdetector.com/ $20 shipped to US
  6. Unused AOI vacuum pump and M16 bulkhead fitting. All in a nifty zippered carrying case. This will fit any camera housing with a M16 bulkhead port. I purchased the set to get the wet/vacuum sensor and my camera housing (Ikelite) uses US spec fittings (sorry can't upload an image) Message me and I'll send you a picture. $100 shipped to US
  7. This is an oldie, but I believe it will work with any Ikelite TTL strobe DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, DS161. This came out at the same time as the DS50/DS125 so the manual only lists those two models. I have no need for this, you pay shipping and its yours. I have PDF(s) of the manuals for this, but they are too large to upload.
  8. I'm thinking of adding a vacuum port to my Ikelite compact camera housing. I understand that the $$ cost of a flood (replacing the camera) is about the cost of the vacuum system, but I don't get to dive as frequently as I would like and almost always the opportunity cost is much greater than the replacement cost. For example I'm going on a 'bucket list' trip to Komodo / Raja Ampat / Triton Bay this autumn and losing the camera would really suck. Has anyone done a similar conversion. Ikelite says to remove a control knob, could I just drill and tap the housing?
  9. So I'm in search of an Ikelite DS125 replacement strobe. I was contacted via PM by scofieldbryan8 giving me a reference to a hamiltonholmes27@gmail.com. All was going well until I received a message from the hamiltonholmes27@gmail.com account saying it was really yekeen.su@gmail.com So rather than Zelle (which gives me no protection), I'm going to insist on PayPal (through a credit card). Just a FYI in case this has come up before or in the future.
  10. Yes Unfortunately the DS125 has been discontinued so long, Ikelite does not offer a repair service for the DS125. Yes, their customer support has been very good to me. I had a failed battery pack (new purchase) and with only three days to when I was scheduled to leave, they overnighted a replacement to me.
  11. The flash tube has died on my second DS125. Ideally I only want the front half (I have an almost new battery pack)
  12. Thanks, Sorry I was unclear, it will not even try and focus
