DM-15 broken?

Post by keithdalby » Mon Jul 03, 2017 6:51 am

I've been using my DM42\beta as my main driver recently, so imagine my shock and fear when I pressed the on button on my DM-15 only to have nothing happen. The screen remains blank. I've pressed both of the [unlabelled] buttons on the back to see if one of them was a reset, but no luck. Connecting it via USB to my PC, my PC recognises it and installs the necessary driver, but the screen remains blank.

So, what should I try now? Battery? Didn't work when connected to a USB power supply, so I am sceptical, but I will take a screwdriver to it later to look inside.

What else can I try?

I am SO embarrassed. Changed the battery, works fine.

I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. Please don't judge me.






I'm sorry.

Go to any butcher in Switzerland, Germany, or Austria, and you will always get a sausage end ("Wurstende") but never a sausage beginning. That's the renowned sausage paradoxon (watch it - it's not the paradoxon of the renowned sausage; did I say I love English since it's such an unambiguous, precise language?). ;)

Since when is English such an unambiguous, precise language? :D
