Are you running the Skan from a battery power source? I know it says 12 to 18 volts on the label but really 12 isn't enough as the internal voltage regulator will cream off a fraction.

Ours is much more reliable running from a higher voltage and we have two options, two PP3 batteries in series or ten AA cells in series, giving us 18 and 15 volts respectively. We use the ten AA cells more often as they last longer and are widely available cheaply.
