YS90DX internal o ring leak

Recommended Posts

Hi all, has anyone here seen a YS90DX internal O ring leak? In the middle of a trip one of our strobes flooded in the internal 0 ring (battery compartment was fine). We ofcourse never touched that o ring before this. I took it apart and didnt notice anything strange. I rinsed it with fresh water, cleaned it a bit, dried it, and afterwards it worked for about a day :) After that it started to behave erratic. I'll probably give it another good cleaning and try again. It might have been bumped on the boat by someone, but it seems unlikely. Just one of those things I guess.. Luckily we bring spares :)

Hi Cor,

 

interesting, does your strobe work again? I would be too anxious and have the strobe serviced instead of DIY :-)

I've never seen the main o-ring fail but I have seen cracked cases or more commonly leaking through the sync cord o-ring. Have also seen the sync sockets forced and loosened on occasion.
