Head flashes without any reason

Hi... We have at work a lighting kit “Interfit EX150” which was working smoothly for about 9 months but now we have a “crisis”…

When we switch-on one head on constant lighting mode it would work fine for 15 min and then it starts beeping and flashing without any interference from our side.

Did anyone encounter similar problem or maybe someone know why it happens?
Is there trouble with a lamp or a flash tube?

Thanks on advance

Something simlar happend to me. Put new battries in transmitter and it has been fine since. If you're not using wireless trigger try a new sync cord,

My guess is that the units developed a fault, get it looked at.

Had this happen with a bowens 500 esprit. Thought it was the radio trigger initially but it wasn't. Eventually it just fired continuously and then went up in a puff of smoke. Sent it to Bowens for repair and service, £80 and got it back within a week.
If in doubt get it checked out.

Mine has the odd fit like this but can be put down to overheating.
