Operation time query - HMC151/0??

Hi folks,

I bought my HMC-151e around May time and have used it for 6 main shoots so far and probably all in all approx I would estimate about 200 hours of operating time.

At a shoot this weekend I was going through the menu when I looked at the operation time in 'other functions' and the figure was 18661h - I was a bit baffled by this, there is no way it's been used in this amount if the 'h' stands for hours.

I was just wanted to check with other HMC151 and 150 users whether they have found similar odd readings or whether I am alone in this and have to take it up with the company that sold me the kit.

The manual says the Operation time - 'Displays the power-on-time - should be a 5digit figure' so perhaps the h doesnt stand for hours as if you have used it for say 10 or 20 hours it would still have to show up as a 5 digit value???

Anyways I'm quite confused if anyone could shed some light or offer any feedback that should ease my mind it would be much appreciated.

That's obviously an impossible # of hours.
