Question about Taylor Measuring Tools & Sensors
Change the batteries. LCD displays will appear very dim and hard to read except at certain angles is the batteries are low.

SOURCE: Digital display is very dim
The most common cause is the failure of an under-sized capacitor on the display unit. Look at the board under the display, the component is labeled C3. It is a small cylinder with the label 68mf, 35V on the side and is attached by 2 small wires. It will probably be a little burnt or have small brown drips like syrup under it. You can buy the component at Circuit City or anything like that for about 75 cents. You need a pencil soldering iron (about $10) to remove the old part and put the new one on. If you can drip a candle, you can solder these 2 wires.

I replaced the C3 capacitor on the circuit board and works fine. This was mentioned in a prior post and took 5 minutes and was under $5.00 for the part.

You need to replace the C3 capacitor on the control board
You can replace only the C3 - it is 68uF / 35V and you can go to Radio Shack and get their part # 272-1028 - 100uF/35V one. It takes all but 10 minutes to re-solder the new one in place

1) remove the soft rubbery cover from the back of the thermometer, this will expose a screw which holds the front plate on. 2) remove the newly exposed screw 3) use a knife or screwdriver (in the small slot on the side of the thermometer) to pry the two pieces of plastic case apart. This will expose the battery 4) use a screwdriver to remove the 1 screw holding the battery cover to battery. 5) replace with a CR2032 3V Lithium cell 6) replace screws and covers
