I have gone thru 6 batteries in 2 months. Do I need a new board? Mine uses the AAA batteries. Thanks

That really odd. Even with a fair amount of shooting, I can usually go a year or more.

You can check with Morini, but it sounds like your board is ill. The way they pot everything in conformal epoxy, it's unlikely to be easy to repair.

Most likely yes and Morini won't repair it. Contact them and see what they offer. If they'll only sell you one (250$ iirc), you can try to soften the epoxy with heat and scrape it off. Then, bring it to an electronics repair person, that stuff is easy to fix.

Ok, another question, The red light comes on for about 1 second, then goes out and it blinks about every 5 seconds, is that normal? Thanks
