I have a lightning damaged Pro-face HMI (UGP571T-MHI1)that seems to be still functional, except for the screen. hoping to get the software to download the existing software, then replace with the current replacement Pro-face HMI?

hi marco, the problem seems with the switches on the face. make sure that ALL switches have a "click" sound when pressed down. if not then that switch needs to be replaced. faulty switches can cause the face functions to work erratically. to try another route use your unit with the wireless remote control to check if all functions work well. cheers.
Hello It is not peredictable about which part/s have been damaged by a lightning stroke. Just see, there will be trillions of volts present, when a lightning stroke hit earth. All the electronic devices are meant to work by 110 or 230VDC. How can one say, which part to it might have been damaged due to lightning stroke? A through checkup should be done. Sometimes, the repair cost may exceed by the price of a new one.
Hi there! If you have a decoder and this was plugged in on the panel it may have damaged the input board. Alternatively have the decoder checked first or try another TV on the same decoder. Lightning can hit the dish and run down through the line into the decoder and/or into the TV. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004
HI, this was an unfortunate surge that has fried the power board Assembly in this unit. it has also fried the main control. this may be a total loss unless, you are considering replacing the entire mother board and power assembly as well.
Replacing the main control board and power board will restore proper function.
This camera has four flash modes and each time you press the button the mode changes. As you press the button you should see the indictor in the upper left side of the screen. 1.In automatic flash, the camera will decide if you need flash or not. This mode does not have any indicator on the screen 2.Forced flash, this will cause the flash to be constantly on. The indicator looks (kind of) like a lightning bolt. 3.Slow Syncro, this mode slightly delays the flash and is used to lighten up the background more the foreground. The indicator looks like the lightning bolt with SL next to it. 4.No flash, this will turn off the flash. The indicator looks like a lightning bolt enclosed by a circle with a diagonal line through the lightning bolt. (similar to a no parking sign).
If you don’t see the indictor changing on the screen the switch behind the button is malfunctioning.
