hey yall


i just spent 10 days in jamaica shooting with my smallHD DP7 OLED. It worked flawlessly as a field monitor, on camera, rigged up, SDI, HDMI, etc. Not one issue at all. I arrived back stateside and suddenly the monitor wont turn on. I traveled with it in my camera backpack, carry-on, so it was always with me. I am not particularly precious with my gear, but I dont mishandle it.

I have attached AB batteries (as I usually power it) as well as AC power. There is no indication at all that it is receiving power. No fans, no screen, nothing. There is no damage to the body.

From jamaica i was home, then had to head to austin texas but didnt need the smallHD, so it stayed in the camera bag in my basement. it was pretty cold while i was away, so the basement got cold, but i would bet not below 50.


Has anyone experienced this? I am going to talk with smallHD today, but just wonderin if any of yall have had similar experiences.
