    After diving I've filled up my laundry tub with warm water to soak my DC1200 with strobe and video light in. As I'm pressing all the buttons on the camera, strobe, and light to flush out any salt residue away the light of course comes on when I press the button on the back of the video light. Then it seems to have a mind of it's own. Goes on and off without touching anything!!! then last time it just stayed on and nothing would turn it off. I tried all possible button functions but couldn't turn it off. After soaking for a while I had to dry the video light right away so I could open it to get the batteries out to shut it down. About a half hour later I put batteries in it and voila it works like it's supposed to the way I have it set. Any ideas what might be going on with it. It's done this the last 2 times while being soaked.
