Question about Optics
My discharge hose end froze and water leaked at the water softener end thus spraying water over the timer board. The display was blank. I took the 2 circuit boards out and dried them. It seemed to function o.k. but the display was scrambled allowing me too see small regions of text only. I removed the LCD display from the front cct board and found water staining at one end of the cct boards gold pads(which connect to the rubber strip connected to the actual LCD). I cleaded the staining and rubber pads and now things are worse. How do you align these devices properly to make the LCD work again.
You need to ask at radio shack or similar electronics store for some kind of gell that will connect the rubber strip to the display. These displays show the information that runs through the rubber strip(fiber optics, I believe?).
It is critical to get a near perfect connection between the two.
Also for cleaning, I would ask a tv repair man what kind of spray solution he uses to clean circuit boards.
Also, whenever you are dealing with electronics, there is a possiblility of causing static which can wipe out a programmed chip on one of the circuit boards. That is why some components that are ordered come in a static free plastic.
