Considering that there are two main components in the display, it could be either the microcontroller, the LCD display, or the cabling between the two.

I am not sure what you mean by swishing, but if shaking it fixes the problem, even momentarily, it may be as simple as a cold solder joint.

It could also be temperature related.

Subject: [time-nuts] Fluke monitor


after about 4-5 month I got the trouble with the LCD fluke monitor........ It was displaying funny nbrs and characters..... and sometime it was stock in one position.../ in one msg / and displaying incorrect time/date...........
Trimble was about 45 Celsius and the Monitor was displaying all kind of funny msg and characters......

Swishing of ONLY the display and after about 1 hrs it was working fine but after about 30 min it started again to display funny characters and msg......

Per PC software there is no any indication that the unit / TRIMBLE / was not working properly just the display unit.......
Tried several times and always got the same results........

Anybody had similar problem????????????
Any suggestion to resolve this problem?????????

Many thanks in advance for all help/ troubleshooting......
