turn on the light starts flashing

Postby sukibear96 » 18 Nov 2010, 10:43

i am looking at the GHD 3.1B for a friend and they come on ok and after a few seconds the light starts flashing. i have tested the lead and had a god look at it and found on damage. i was wondering if it was a fault with thermal fuse or something more serious. anyone got any ideas

Sounds like an intermittent cable or a thermal fuse problem. Please see our debugging guide:

Obviously the light is supposed to flash once they are up to temperature. That is normal.

i have checked the cable and all seems ok. i think it is the thermal fuse as when the light goes out. it comes back on when i put my testers across them. i ave ordered one from this site as a replacement.

thanks for your help
