Sears UltraSoft 800 Water Softener LCD Display wonky

My discharge hose end froze and water leaked at the water softener end thus spraying water over the timer board. The display was blank. I took the 2 circuit boards out and dried them. It seemed to function o.k. but the display was scrambled allowing me too see small regions of text only. I removed the LCD display from the front cct board and found water staining at one end of the cct boards gold pads(which connect to the rubber strip connected to the actual LCD). I cleaded the staining and rubber pads and now things are worse. How do you align these devices properly to make the LCD work again.

Sears UltraSoft 800 Water Softener LCD Display wonky

You need to ask at radio shack or similar electronics store for some kind of gell that will connect the rubber strip to the display. These displays show the information that runs through the rubber strip(fiber optics, I believe?).It is critical to get a near perfect connection between the two.Also for cleaning, I would ask a tv repair man what kind of spray solution he uses to clean circuit boards.Also, whenever you are dealing with electronics, there is a possiblility of causing static which can wipe out a programmed chip on one of the circuit boards. That is why some components that are ordered come in a static free plastic.

The LCD display on the handheld remote seems to be "fading". I'm running it on AC current, so that shouldn't be the problem. Could I have mistakenly turned off the display? Please advise. Thanks!

Probably too late, but you can change the brightness on the display. You may have accidentally turned it down. Let me know if you still have the problem and I can tell you how to access the brightness function on the hand controller.

Meade Autostar handbox

Because this is a new purchase i would suggest getting the handbox replaced under warranty. If the guy was rude, then mention this to their management. There have been quite a few prolems with meade gear on our site here. Handbox included. If you are up to it you can open it up. if so inspect the board for damage, shorts or loose solder joints. Some of these things can be repaired, some cannot. On this last statement it would seem sensible to get the replacement then start again from scratch. I have found about 7 recent problems with this unit, so be aware this is not a fault free unit.nettiser

Very old Leitz I believe 10 X 30. Left out in rain last night. water inside. How do I get it out? I unscrewed lens on large end, but water appears to be in area where mirrors are.

Firstly there are no mirrors, they are prisms. They need to be completely disassembled and dried out AS SOON AS POSSIBLE by someone who KNOWS WHAT TO DO. Seeing your post was in December I hope that you have sourced a good repair agent in quick time.

What you refer to as st is actually (Se) for self shooting. You set it that way, push the 'S' button, and you have 10 secconds to pose for your picture. ct means if you hold the 'S' button donw, it will take consectutive pictures, like when you want to capture a bird sitting and then taking off to fly. The others I'm not too sure of, so I will add no more.
