Hi,

I have a pair of 8yr old DLite-2 heads, one of which triggers but fails to "ignite" at lower energy settings (sub 35). Instead, a spark can be seen inside the tube.

They haven't been thrashed; about 60K images in total and have been very reliable. The little information I have found suggests that a tube seal has gone. Neither tube shows any sign of discolouration.

Does this sound like the likely cause?

Thanks in advance,
Ian.
