    For information it's a

    possible if you reset it could fix the issues but can't see a reboot on that one some have two point you make contact with after swapping the battery to system reset it .. but as it's mid to late 80's might have fused by now and they are gone for good .. but have a look to see if you can jump start it



    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I did think of that , I saw the reset mark on the battery case but was not sure as I had some sort of display. Still you live and learn.

    yeah thats the thing you could get a full read but then not be able to set or anything like that ..they don't always need to be reset mean with the 52's never had but the f91 say or some of the w range then yeah they need it .. plus when the digits go it looks different as they are normal lighter and gappy .. where the one seen was strong and clear and dark so did think a possible reset or make sure contact was clean was the issue

    Evening guys, well I picked this up today from the po depot, thanks to the import ransom I had to pay, not too bad tho. After trying to get it running for an hour turned out the case back was too tight and restricting the movement somehow! Loosened it by 1/6th of a turn brought it to life!
