But lately it has been more varied. Basically voltage is low at start-up (typ. 11-12V) and it doesn't increase with engine rpm. But switching the lights off for a few seconds always brings the voltage up to a higher level (13-14V) it only falls slightly when the lights are turned on again. It then (usually) sinks slowly and lights off-on will (usually) bring it back up again. Does this behaviour indicate where the fault is?,Sounds like the battery is on the way out.,,,

For seca 763 having problem with the display. All led segment was displayed and weight is varying.Kindly help.


Try weighing an inanimate object, is the weight stable? Maybe you're stabalizing yourself by holding on to something? That will throw it off. all weight must be on the base and not moving to get an accurate reading. If it's still unstable it need new weight sensors and calibration. Probably not a DIY.

Screen unstable on my versapro


Connect a spare monitor to the video output, if the same! the Video Graphics Card is defective, normally built into the motherboard. But if you get a stable image, it indicates a bad LCD display, however! in rare cases the video cable becomes loose and needs to be re-inserted.

Bought new LED indicators for my Legend and changed the flasher unit to suit. They flash at proper speed when engine not running, but increase in frequency the more revs are applied. Any ideas, please?


I would check the battery voltage and ensure the battery voltage doesn't go above 14 volts. There may be a regulator fault. If all reads OK with a meter, replace the flasher unit for a more stable one.
Hope this helps and ride safely.

The 'Battery' dashboard warning light has come on. What are the possible causes of this...bad battery, alternator, belt? 2003 Toyota Sienna


usually this indicates that the alternator is not charging you need to check the charge rate either with DC volt meter or a multi meter that is capable of DC voltage reading, the voltage when the engine is running should be between 13.8 & 14.3 volts if it is not the alternator or the voltage regulator is faulty,also check for loose wiring or bad connections.....hope this helps.....cheers

Light meter not working after putting in new batteries


See solution #1 on this answer which was virtually the same question as yours.

http://www.fixya.com/support/t2357097-light_meter_not_working

Basically, the other answerer says that the meter on your camera does not work until the film counter reaches frame 1.

The only difference between the battery you have used and the correct one is that the camera was designed for 1.35v mercury cells and these have not been made for over ten years now. Modern equivalents to the v76 (more commonly known as PX675 or MR44) are rated at 1.5v. The difference won't cause your light meter not to work, but it will cause it to meter incorrectly. The modern alkaline equivalent also has an unstable voltage which slowly drifts down as the battery is used, so any compensation which you make for the error has to be regularly assessed as the voltage drops.

You can either get the CrisCam MR9 adapter which takes a stable voltage 1.55v silver oxide battery and which drops the voltage to the 1.35v which your camera needs or you can use a Weincell MRB675 Zinc Air battery which produces the correct voltage but expires after around nine months to a year once activated. If you use the camera a lot, get the CrisCam adapter, if not then get the Weincell.

If the answer helped, please rate the original answerer as well as mine.

Flickering screen


Unstable voltage regulation, or unstable referencing for the video signal levels.

The tech will service this by doing board swappings to fx the fault.
