    my ranger RX elinchrom portable battery 'A input' started making
    my flash go pop with no flash and sparking blue in the bulb.

    so i figured my bulb died and put the other speed light into the 'A input'
    it started popping too.

    both worked in the 'B input' : and then i took compressed air :
    and blew out the 'A input' and it functioned again.

    i am so scared it's broken and just worked one more time :
    and i want to know what to do about it or how to asses this situation /
    fix this situation.

    i've had the kit since 2007 : i dont know the life expectancy of them.

    IS THIS NORMAL :(

    If you can find a service location for them, give them a call. Failing that, look up a local electronics repair shop, it may just be a loose or corroded connection...or if it's a certain piece that needs to be replaced, maybe they can isolate that for you.

    Call Samy's. They're an official Elinchrom distributor. If they can't do the service themselves, they know who can.
