Cateye cc 6000

I have a 1990s cat eye micro cc 6000, which I have not used for over 12yrs. I replaced the lithium battery and the display works fine on its initial settings. When I cycle, the display does not give any readings for speed, distance, etc, and only the timer works. I have checked the sensors and magnets and they are positioned in accordance with the instruction manual. Do the sensors or magnets have a maximum lifespan? I can't think what else might be causing the unit not to function. Andrew

It sounds like you know what's wrong - distance. Take the magnet in your hand and wave it past the cadence sensor to see if THAT works.

As far as why your crankarm and chainstay are too far apart, well, maybe your bottom bracket is too long or something, but it is mostly beyond the scope of anyone who can't see it to judge. Take it to a bike shop and ask them.

SOURCE: Cateye double wireless stopped showing time

Well, it IS wireless so it need ssome good juice and line of site from the sensor to the receiver to work.

Take the unit off the handlbar mount and hold it close to the transmitter while you move the wheel magnet past the sensor.

If it starts to work begin moving the computer farther away toward your handlebar mount and figure out where it dies and why. Some units have distance specs that must be adhered to.

You should change the batteries on the transmitter on the fork of the bike, usually when that goes low, the readings can be erratic.

Hi. I have to replace battery on my CatEye Velo 8. Will I lose my ODO? Thx

Probably. Look in the manual. They say to do an ALL CLEAR after the battery is replaced, which WOULD clear the ODO.

Hi My bike has recently been serviced and now the computer won't recognise any distance travelled. The sensor is all in line etc and the display is fine...any suggestions?

Below is the answer from Cat Eye's website. 9 times out of 10 the magnet has moved either up the spoke or the front wheel was put on with the magnet on the opposite side from the sensor. After that the sensor could of moved outboard a cm or 2 from the magnet. Then start with the battery tests as outlined below. Remember with a wireless model you have two batteries, one in the computer and one in the transmitter.

From Cat Eye's website

How do I get my computer head unit to register a signal with the sensor?
If you computer head unit does not pick up a signal or does not seem to "communicate" with the sensor - check the following:

First, make sure the "AT" icon or "AUTO" is displayed on the screen (computer is in auto-timer mode, not manual stop/start mode).

Second, make sure the magnet is passing within 2-3 mm of the mark on the sensor (on the fork blade or chainstay, depending on model).

If neither help restore a consistent signal, then it could be either a low battery or a damaged wiring (Bracket/Sensor) kit.

Even if the LCD display is clear and bright, the battery may be too low to transmit a signal from the sensor to the computer head unit.

Next, with a fresh battery installed, try performing a manual restart operation to bring the LCD display back to life. Do this by either 1. pressing both buttons (Mode and Set on back) OR 2. all three buttons (Mode, Start/Stop, and small Set button on back) at once and then releasing all three OR 3. by pressing the AC (all-clear) button if your computer has one. This should bring the display back to life, and the unit can now be re-calibrated for your bike. See if consistent signal is re-established.

Finally, If that does not help, take a paper clip and bridge the 2 diagonally opposed metal contacts on the back of the computer head unit. If random information appears in the current speed display (upper portion of screen) while bridging the contacts, then the computer head unit is fine and the problem lies with the bracket/sensor kit. It may be stretched or damaged just enough to interrupt the signal transmission, even if not visibly so. If that is the case, please visit our small parts site to purchase the appropriate replacement sensor kit.

My Cat Eye cycle computer (Strada Wireless CC-RD300W) has stopped registering my speed or tracking my miles. I thought it was a battery issue, because the display began fading out. My son, an avid cyclist,...

It's possible water contamination is the problem. Put the computer in a Ziploc bag of rice for a day and try again. If that does not work probably a replacement is the best option, assuming it is out of warranty.
