    Similar behavior as this video5https://youtu.be/wQaVQLy_cEM

    My LED desk light was unplugged since a week ago and it keeps flashing randomly.

    Sometimes it flash once every few minutes. Sometimes it flashes a few times....

    Its unplugged. For almost a week. Where did it even get a power to flash?

    Static electricity from your cat rubbing against it?

    Does the model have a built-in battery?

    Now that would be an instant success for my YouTube channel

    Have no effect when I rubbrd5it to the cat or when I'm holding it or when left on a desk. Still randomly flashes

    Now I'm curious whether those flashes are a Morse code. Hmm

    It have a place to insert 3 aaa batteries but I never insert a battery to it.

    Yeah no solar panels too.

    Anyway my TV near it is now broken, and I'll bring it to a place to fix it. Let's see if a change in its surroundings will stop its from flashing

    Probably one of the effects in this


    If you've got fubar wiring or live close to high-voltage lines (or a high-power transmitter like radio/radar?) that might explain a lot of your issues.

    Powerful radar too. That shit can mess with your brain. I recommend wrapping your head in tin-foil to avoid the worst effects.

    Trust me, I'm a scientist.
