10 Min from NDAC.
Just got back from a week in the red sea, which was really really good. Including diving eye to eye with a pod of common bottle nose dolphins.

But 1st dive with the W200 and it flooded at 5 Meters, water came through the lens.

So completely stripped it down clean, dryed it and re greased O'rings etc, new batteries.:twothumbs

2nd dive totally flooded at 4 meters.:poof:.

Light was free from defects when compared to my other W200, no obvious problems, and everything spotlessly clean and appropriately lightly greased.

Jumped in with light already turned on and didn't mess with it.

It is now in a Landfill some where near Hugarda!

On a plus side the ugly light now has around 30 odd dives on it in total so far.

Is this the one you took apart had trouble putting back together and commented there was only 2 O rings when there are supposed to be 3?

Oh well, I always did say the stock O rings are crap.

I hope it didnt ruin your dive.
Did it have a frosted edge to the lens or was it clear? ( my latest ones are all clear while all the rest have been frosted).

Just request and RMA number and return the product and ask for a new one. If the item is clearly faulty, they should replace it.
