    noticed that the second character on the LED display has started to malfunction - however, If I touch the display (without opening it up) it comes back on temporarily. Has anyone else had this issue - and if so, is it easy to remedy?

    snick,

    I'm no electronics expert, but if it is working when you put a bit of pressure on it, it sounds like it might be a dry solder joint on the circuit board. To fix it you'd need to get to (or remove) the circuit board containing the display module and take a soldering iron to it.

    If you don't want to tackle this yourself I guess you're looking at taking it to a repair shop or finding a friend who is good with a soldering iron.

    cheers,
    tony

    Hi, at last, someone else with the same problem !!

    My 2nd LED failed :( about 8 months ago, but it's out of warranty. Sometimes it glowed faintly, but no more. Now the 3rd one has disappeared :eek: , and that's really annoying, as you can't see the channel number. I have a soldering iron, so will be going in to try and fix it. :nono:
