Hey everyone,

Had another death of SB28s. For reasons unknown my sensor triggered my camera for 500 shots last night, each at 1 second intervals just in case this very thing happened. Flash power at 1/8. Yet the SB28 is now dead, refusing to power on. I'm getting tired of these units dying.

Is there any way to fix them? Especially as no camera manufacturer has yet made anything with a better capacitor?

My SB28's have survived similar events. I use standard eneloops for power. Perhaps you are using lithium and they run hotter and longer?

Or perhaps I am lucky because night time temps are cool here.

Last night was fairly cold. I am using Eneloop Pros.
