Deus remote problem.

Post by Holedigger Pete » Sun Aug 12, 2018 6:50 pm

Have problem with remote, screen will light up but is blank, will light up for a while and coil will flash then remote light will go out. No numbers or anything else on screen. Thanks Pete.

Hi, Did this happen after or during a software update or did it suddenly appear ?

Hi, I would leave it on charge for an hour or so to see if it gets any charge and if its the same after that (no display) I would open it up to see if any connector has come loose (battery connector or ribbon cable to LCD display) BUT....bear in mind warranty, if its in warranty send it back to shop.
I personally would open it up but I was a electronics technician for many years.

Not under warranty, checked everything in back looks fine. Had it on charge all day, lights up but nothing else.

Hi, sounds like the battery to me but you never know, you could try it with the battery from your WS4 or WS5,s they have the same battery fitted, failing that its off to an authorised repair place like Pentechnics or Regton for a repair quote, its such an expensive little thing :-L

Friend of mine took remote, he can update it all seems to be working but still blank screen, so its off to Regtons and Nigel to see if it needs new screen. fingers crossed that is the problem.

A wise move they are to valuable to mess about with.

Over the years the few times I have sent something to Nigel and with a prior phone call,Iam up and running again in just a couple of days.

Happy Hunting.

Jerry.
