Question about Polar Exercise & Fitness
Hi: I have the Polar F11 for almost 3 years. Back in January I had the battery replaced with an authorized Polar Service Center. The other day I was using my HR Monitor when the screen just froze 10 minutes into the workout. I can't press any buttons to stop the workout or go back to any screen. My question to you is if there is a way to repair it or do I need to get a new monitor?
Hello glmatta, The unit can be repaired. Remove the units battery. Remove the screws holding the case together. Carefully open the case on a table covered in cloth, T-shirt type cloth, disconnect the flat ribbon cables, lightly clean with a #2 pencile eraser, reinsert cables. Use the same steps on PCbd pin connections. Important question, Do all of the buttons have the same amount of snap when pressing & releasing? If not you have a bad keypad. A bad button swith will cause tis type of malfunction. Contact the Mgfr requesting technical support for possible replacement part and cost.
