US Divers Analog Depth Gauge/Bottom Timer Quit Working

I think I just need to replace the battery(ies) but the back does not have any readily apparent way to be removed. I've got the gauge out of the rubber housing/console but the back of the gauge is smooth with no screws or obvious place to pry it open. Any other ideas? The prior response to someone else's similar problem was not workable.

Hi,

Sounds like it's factory sealed. I'd bring it to a good dive shop for their opinion. Some modern guages can have user changable batteries but a lot of the older models would need to be sealed and pressure tested in the factory..

Hope this helps..

Can I set the Malibu 8100-0600-01 to operate at 2 different times at night-(ie- on at 7:00pm-off at 10:00pm then on again at 5:00am and off at 7:00 am)


Yes: Rotate power pack selector to ON. Buy analog wall timer with 3-prong plug from local store. Plug power pack into analog wall timer that will turn power pack on-off twice a night.
Copy following link to identify timer and also see tips for prolonging power pack life:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html#dawn-dusk
Analog timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59200

The 1-year warranty digital transformers sold by Malibu and other vendors are made for single on-off events per each night.
If you manually set power pack to ON so lights are on all the time, then plug power pack into ordinary analog wall timer, then the analog timer turns power pack on-off when you want.

Other option is to buy 5-year warranty Intermatic-Malibu power pack with built-in analog timer dial and set trippers to turn on-off when you want. Order extra trippers for more on-off operations per each 24-hour day.

My cordless mouse quit working. I think it might


The battery is located under the place you put your palm. You need to grasp that piece from the top and pull back to disengage it from the rest of the mouse. I think it might take won AA battery, but I'm not sure

Digital heater countrol and fuel gauge not working


i had the same problem in my 91 deville but the fuel gauge was intermittent at first, working most of the time then eventually it quit working all together, i also replaced my ignition switch thinking that was the issue but what actually happened is the fuel gauge shorted out the 16 volt supply from the bcm (body control module) which also feeds the ac and in my case the digital speedometer. your speedo probably isnt digital, but if you unplug the fuel gauge from the harness your ac gauge should come back on or vise versus unplug your ac and the fuel gauge should come back on right now im trying to locate fuel gauge. i hope this info is helpful to you, all you need to remove the gauge is 1/4 inch drive rachet and 7mm socket and a phillips screwdriver (#1) for the trim

I have a 25 year old US Divers analog depth gauge in a console. It has a small LCD window just below the center of the gauge that I seem to remember is a bottom timer. Does anyone know how to change the...


If you look at your council you will see screws... you must unscrew the council and then remove the computer. (if it is a soft council mount you will have to squeeze it out) once it is out you should see how to replace the batterie on the back... once it is out its pretty easy.

How and why scuba gauges give a diver critical information while scuba diving?


Scuba gauges give a diver three very important pieces of information: 1. Time 2. Depth 3. Air Consumption This information enables a diver to stay within safe time and depth limits and avoid running out of air. There are many different devices on the market to help with this, from simple gauges to complex digital consoles. Time If a diver is not using a dive computer to monitor their nitrogen, they dive according to approved dive tables. To use dive tables properly, a diver needs to track their downtime. This can be done with a good dive watch. Two things make a good dive watch: water resistance and a rotating bezel. 1. Water Resistance. Good dive watches are rated to a depth in meters or feet (e.g. 200 feet) or a pressure rating in atmospheres (e.g. 4atm). Even though most divers probably won’t dive below 130 feet (the recreational dive limit), a good dive watch should be rated to 200 feet. Note: There is a difference between “water resistance” and “waterproof”. A “waterproof” watch is what you would wear in the shower, but would probably start leaking at 15-20 feet. 2. Rotating Bezel. A bezel is an adjustable ring on the face of the dive watch with a pointer indicator. At the beginning of a dive, the pointer on the bezel is aligned with the minute hand where it stays though out the dive. At the end of the dive, you compare the difference between the bezel and the minute hand to find out the length of the dive. The bezel should only move “counterclockwise”. It is possible to accidently move the bezel during a dive. Because of this, watchmakers make sure any accidental movement will turn the time in a conservative direction, making the dive longer rather than shorter. Depth Another important part of scuba gauges is a depth gauge. A depth gauge enables a diver to keep track of their depth even if they cannot see the water’s surface. Gauges can be either an analog (needle-and-dial) device or a digital device. Both work in the same way. They measure the surrounding water pressure and convert this into an accurate reading of your depth. Another feature of a good depth gauge is a maximum depth indicator. This tells a diver their maximum during a dive and must be reset after each dive. Air Consumption Another equally important part of scuba gauges is a submersible pressure gauge (SPG). This is connected to the first stage with a high-pressure hose and measures the pressure of the air in the tank. The SPG is much like the gas gauge on a car. At the beginning of a dive, a diver starts with a full tank. This should be about 3000 psi or 200 bars. As the diver breathes during the dive, the gauge will move slowly downwards. This allows the diver to have enough air left in the tank to: 1. Make a slow, safe ascent 2. Make any necessary decompression stops 3. Inflate their BCD once at the surface 4. Breath from the regulator if the surface conditions are rough A submersible pressure gauge also allows a diver to stop diving with air still in the tank. This keeps contaminants from entering the tank due to no air pressure. Wrist Depth Gauge Scuba gauges come in two basic styles. Stand alone gauges or gauge consoles. Stand alone gauges such as a wrist mounted depth gauge or a submersible pressure gauge attached to the first stage of a regulator are great backups when using digital gauges. Gauge consoles allow divers to have all their gauges in one place. Although less easy to read, analog gauges sometimes give slightly more accurate readings than digital gauges, particularly at shallow depth. Submersible Pressure Gauge Choosing Scuba Gauges When choosing scuba gauges, remember to look for: 1. Easy-to-read numbers 2. Luminescent dial or back lighting options 3. Rotating/swivel mounting 4. Easy disassembly for cleaning or replacing parts 5. Good warranty

Scuba Gauges what do I need them for?


"A diver relies on scuba gauges to know three things: 1.-Depth 2.-Air Consumption 3.-Time Depth and Time are vital for nitrogen and air management. A scuba diver needs to know how deep he has been and for how long in order to judge the necessity and length of decompression stops and to calculate residual nitrogen for repetitive dives. The time of a dive is easily tracked using a scuba diving watch and the depth is tracked using a depth gauge. "
