Vex FL8 question

2 posts in this topic

While ice fishing last week, I noticed the colors on my FL8 seem to be faded. Can the light in these units weaken? I would think they either work or don't. It became very difficult to read if not in the portable. The unit is at least 10 years old - maybe older. The battery has only been used a dozen times since it was new just over a year ago and was fully charged.

Anybody experience similar problems? Any ideas?

It sounds like your brushes are worn. There is probably a lot of brush dust inside your unit which will dim the display.

Vexilar has a brush kit if you are comfortable soldering small things. They will also change them at the factory for you.

Contact Vexilar, and they will give you the scoop.
