    **** Questions on a module 1647 ****





    Well I bought a dw 003 the other week none working well it arrived today so I strip it and clean it and put a new battery in at first I thought complete shot as it was error messaging in that the colour block was all in and the numbers was missing digits and just not looking right, any way I jump it and it's working fine now well almost but the lights not it's not the button strip it and check it and also I tried setting the auto light so it should come on with a twist of the wrist but still no luck

    So to my question how easy is it to fix this as would guess the light blown have not fixed a problem like this before so is the module shot then or is there a quick fix mean worse case it works just no light but hmmm like me a light

    As always Ismy

    AFAIK the motion detector is a steel ball in a tube.
    If shaked in the right direction the ball is shorting contacts and the light fires.

    Some peolple say that some harde knocks can shake the ball loos and make the auto light working again.
    But maybe thee is corrosion preventing the contacts from shorting.

    There are some additional components involved in the EL light.

    maybe you can hear the step up converter chirping when the light button is pressed.
    Then the electrical system is OK so far and the EL is faded or contact to the display panel is lost.
    You see no pictures in my post?
    Photobucket decided to lock my pics behind a 40$/month prescription service.
    I used their services since 2009 so the most of my old threads have Photobucket pics inside.
    If you stumble across one of those threads and want to see the pic, PM me and i will re-attach it.
    What can we learn from all the lost information?
    1. never thrust cloud services
    2. always keep control of your data

    can hear it contacting when pressing the button but nothing else .... I have realise I have another one of these so what I have done is matched up the fully working module with this case as it is the better of the two so got one fully working one that looks great ..then one that sorta ok but no light everything else seems to work so guess the one is my new beater till I can find some info out on possible repair
