PCa Light questions
I have this light:
Ikelite PC-A Halogen Light (http://www.leisurepro.com/Prod/CategoryID_972/Context_965/Sort_Price/DescSort_0/Filter_1%3d387/IK153.html?Hit=1)

I have only used it on a couple of dives (and never flooded) and now when I went to test it before a dive it will not work.
First though, dead batteries - put in fresh batteries = still does not work.
Then I thought maybe the bulb burnt out (although I have not used it anywear near long enough that the bulb should be burnt out). I inspected it and it sure appears that it is intact.

Is there anything else that I am missing that could be the problem? I plan on taking it into my LDS to swap out head to narrow down the problem.

Probably the bulb. Easy to check with a multi-meter. That bulb is being driven pretty hard. I always keep a couple spares handy.
