Re: LVB tracker display problem - solved



Hi Fer

Did you replace the LCD with the same device model or a different one?

If it was a different model, could you let me have the details of the old
one so I could check to see if the Tracker works within its specification?

Many thanks.

I changed the 2x16 LCD and now LVB works fine.
  Thanks Howard and all for advises

  Hello

Wondering if someone can help.

  I just finish to build an LVB tracker for a friend of mine. All works fine
with NOVA but during a satellite pass the display stuck as in the picture:

  All other functions are OK and the tracker is still tracking the
satellite. A quick restart (power off / power on) and display works again
but after some minutes it is again stuck. It seems just only a display
problem.
   
  Same behavior with other satellites passes. 
   
  I  built a couple of LVB units and I have been using an LVB tracker with
NOVA  for years without problems.
  
Any ideas ?
