    Does anyone know if the light on the EQ should stay solid or pulse ?

    The EQ has a neon bulb indicator. Flashing is a sign that the bulb life is nearing an end.

    The bulb only. Not the EQ itself.

    It is like a small version of any neon light you've ever seen. As the neon in the vacuum is deleted, the light wave will start to 'flash' as it alternates on and off. Your eyes perceive it as a flicker.

    Cheers,

    David
