  1. Hi, I've got to change the flash bulb on a digi due to it being dropped,
    I've got a suitable donor to try but was wondering a: are there any special
    precautions I should take out side of the obvious & b: is there a safe way
    of ensuring the charge capacity is disrcharged fully?

    TIA for advice

    Place a 10Kohm 2 watt resistor across the capacitor, this will
    discharge it. You should only need to leave it connected for a few
    seconds to perform the task of fully discharging the cap.
  3. Ta, want to avoid the nasty crack I got when removing the donor flash!
