mine started flashing like crazy and it wasn't dead and I definitely didn't take 16 drags in a minute, and when I take one that is too long it just blinks about 5 times I think, but this was different.. I think it was self cleaning even though it wasn't staying lit for the 20 seconds or whatever
The 901s I had used to flash like a loonie when they self clean.
You can also hear a distinctive schh sound come from the atomiser when it starts.
The atomiser also gets HOT much more so than usual .
Best thing to do is unscrew it wait a few seconds and then screw it back in.
It should NOT start another self clean .
If it starts heating up again immediately then you most likely have a problem with the battery switch being stuck.
Try tapping it gently or blow through it from the LED end this may free it.
Dont leave it screwed in to the atomiser unattended until you are satisfied it is safe.
Here's a thread I posted a while back that might help you. Cheers.
