PRO I Monitor and Digital Level Problem
Posted 02 January 2008 - 04:01 PM
First and Most Irksome:
If I use a battery that is fresh off the charger or above about 14 V the monitor powers up but does not come into focus. The Picture is somewhat enlarged or zoomed in and out of focus.
Not too big a problem as I can always swap it with another lower volt battery but it could lead to a situation where all batteries are charged and I have no battery to power the monitor. Is this common to this model of monitor? Is there an easy fix?
I was practicing the other day and the digital Level seemed to get stuck. It would not move, the three horizontal lines just sat there off to the left. I was not sure if this was related to my earlier problem or if It was was indicative of a problem with my digital level.
Not Planing on doing any work with it any time soon as I have a lot of Practicing to do and Many More things to buy; However, I would like anyones feedback as I want to be prepared when the time comes to work.

I never used my level sensor so I'm not sure about that one.

I tried what you recommended and here are my observations. Most of the time as soon as I turned the brightness all the way down the problem was solved. The Picture "fixed" itself. I could then turn the brightness back up with no problem. However on some occasions (when the battery was really hot) this only caused the picture to "zoom out" a little bit but was still out of focus and I was still not seeing the full image. So along the lines of your suggestion I tried manipulating the other controls and what fixed it every time was toggling the 2:1 de-squeeze switch into the squeeze position and then back again. So, now I guess My question is, What next? Should I send this into PRO?, will it get worse with time? or Should I just Live with it?

Again, my level of tecnical knoweldge is about -10. Everybody at PRO is super, super cool and I'm sure they would be happy to give you their 2 cents over the phone.

I appreciate it. I think I will probably follow your advise and leave it be for now. I still have lots of practicing to do, and even more gear to buy so I we will see what happens.
