F 280 problem

  1. I decided to resurect my hardly used F 280 and (I guess) not unexpectedly it has a problem.
    When ever I switch it on the FP sign on the back starts flashing and soon starts popping
    of a series of small flashes. I find that by pressing the red test button and also switching it
    off and on a few times the FP sign stops flashing and the charge loads and the red light comes on.

    It seems to operate normally on camera with the under over and flashing little square all working as they should
    but the FP and Normal signs on the back of the flash never come on after firing to confirm correct exposure.

    Has anyone had experience with this Thanks in advance
