does it work only sometimes? if so, it might be a loose resistor. Same problem on mine, and took it to someone with a soldering pen. soldered the resistor back on, and worked amazing. Look around on here, somewhere there is a step by step on how to fix it
Ok, I read the posted link regarding broken solder connections and I had no such thing. I did re-solder them anyway just in case but it did nothing. Most of my console works perfectly but I just can't get the compass to calibrate. Sometimes the box is empty... sometimes it just stays stuck on SE... whatever. It just doesn't work. I tried different zones but I guess mine is just plain crap. UPDATE!!!! It worked today! after I 'fixed' it yesterday it was blank after I re-calibrated it but when I started out this morning it worked perfectly.....If it goes to heck again then this was just a random occurrence and I will be stumped again. I'll keep you posted.
Well I just fixed mine after reading this it hasn't worked it 2 years I didnt have any luck with the solder though couldnt get it to stick at all so i pushed up the 620 and 680 that had came loose on one side and put some gorilla glue to hold them down if you do it this way just make sure it dries before you put the juice to it ...
Thanks guys saved me a bundle:icon_ford:
Im a welder by trade thats how I make my coin, maybe soldering just isnt my thing I guess messed with it 30 minutes or so felt like I couldnt get the little fuses hot enough without risking the integrity of the circuit board , wish I had some little china man hands for this one youll see ..:dunno:
