Hi Craig
I have had this where the pill was flashing and what I found was the battery wasn’t a very good connection as the spring on the pill was shorter than the AS pill I had previously used before and the + button on the top of the battery wasn’t as proud as some others I have ,once I changed it to a better battery with a longer button so to speak the issues was resolved .
Regards
Colin

Hi hairlesshunter,

It sounds like it has changed groups.

Just put it in low power mode and watch it. After a second or two it will blink. When it does this, give it a quick press just as you would to change modes and it will be back to the 3 mode group again. :thumbup:


Cheers





Clive
