The display is obviously completely blank. But the worst part is when I put the old battery back in, it was still blank. This leads me to think I will have to buy and new unit.
Anyone have something similar happen or have suggestions on what to try next?
I had this problem. There are 2 possible reasons:
1. The side prong is out of place. I'm going to post a topic on this, because it is causing my unit to reset while riding. You want to adjust the prong back from the battery, then turn the little tips back towards the battery.
2. The little gasket is out of place on the battery holder. This little rubber o-ring is tough to get into the groove on the edges. If the battery holder was very tough to get back into place, and to turn to the close position, this is the problem.
