bowens GM500 esprit issue

I recently sold some Bowens GM500 lights which worked fine I upgraded to the 500r setup. Anyway the person who I sold them to has said that there is a intermittent fault with one of them in that it will occasionally not fire although it will fire every time on the test button they said they've tried more than one trigger setup and it will still not fire every time I've spoke to Bowens who say can't be much wrong with it possibly a socket issue where the trigger goes in however I've also spoke to a independent repairer who said the circuit board may be shot which will probably make a repair unviable just wondering anyone else experienced this issue Bowens will look at it and return it for £45 inc vat obviously any repairs will be extra In the short time I've had a play with the 500r setup I'm glad I upgraded
