    I just had my main compartment flooded on the 1st check out Dive at Tubbataha last week. I have not dived for 1.5 years and the unit are checked at the water pail for leaks and then power up at 5m with no issue. Then at 15m when I want to shoot something, I noticed there is no LED light on the strobe and saw bubble at the front of the strobe! I though I have screwed up the battery O-ring. Upon surface, i found my batteries and battery compartment are absolutely dry! Water has entered the strobe through the split line of the main compartment.

    This strobe is a replacement strobe given by Sea & Sea Japan as the original I bought had firmware issue (intermittent green/red light and can't fire) during a dive trip in 2014. I not being diving regularly and the strobe has only about 30 dives over last 4 years. The dealer who sold me the strobes told me it being sometime (more than 4 years) since I had it and Sea & Sea recommend to service the Strobe every 2 years as per the Manual!!!! Obviously this also mean Sea & Sea is not going to take responsible for this flooding.

    My question is YS-D1 and YS-D2 has more or less the same design. How many cases of this has happened?? I don't see this kind of factory sealed flooding on Inon or Ikelite.
