H6 LCD screen issues

Post by Ramon » Fri Mar 02, 2018 10:06 am

Hi there, I have my H6 recorder since two years and about three months ago the LCD screen begans give me problem. In short, when I turn it on, the screen don't show anything, it remains grey. Only after four or five attempts it works regularly. I updated the firmware to the last version but the problem still there.

Anyone had my same issues or have any idea to fix it?

Do any other indicators function?

If no indicators are working, the problem is more likely in the power switch and related circuits (is the behavior the same if you have a powered USB cable connected?)

If only the LCD panel is acting up (if you know the normal start-up state, and can follow the manual to maneuver the menu system -- try to see if you can start a new recording, stop, and play it back; if all other functions are working, you might have a loose ribbon cable for the display and your multiple on/off actions are jiggling the cable)
