Question about Franklin Electronic Holy Bible - King James Version

Open Question

Bible computer malfunction

My old Franklin Bible computer is showing many blank vertical lines on the screen making it un-readable. I've had 1 or 2 for quite some time, but now there is maybe 30 or forty. I would like it repaired because it was built well in the mid eightys powered by 4 AAA batteries. Newer bible computers are made cheaply powered by what lookes like a watch battery.

    You are so right. I have the same problem. I have the KJB-640 and I love it and had it for many years. It has the same lines you described and is displaying random scriptures and information when I turn it on now. I bought a new one and it does not work nor does it compare with the quality of the old one. The Christian Supply store will not take the new one back and I was told I need to mail it to Franklin to change it. I think I am going to mail them both. I am just frustrated.

It could be either problem, but likely it's a software issue. Best thing you can do is contact Franklin, and see what they think. Here's their website:
Couldn't find anyone on the net who reported any problems, so maybe contacting the manufacturer will help.

In some cases, there are minor defects in some parts of the screen. Points that do not light, points with
brightness different from that of the periphery, or points with color different from that of the periphery.
Some pixels will always be on or always off. Please note that this is not a malfunction. So what this says is that it's not the Plasma Cell problem, its more like a bad board inside. You will need more info like schematic and find out which area the bad part is in.
