    problem with buttons..

    Hi,

    the past few dives I have had a problem with my primary hanset.. The menu button had a bad response and I had to push the button 10-20 times to enter the menu, so changing the setpoint was a pain in the ass... The setpoint was finally set to 0,7 and dived manually on high setpoint


    Last night i cleaned and switched place on the menu and confirm butten and now everything is working perfect!


    Is this a common problem with the handset on the Meg?

    Yes its quite common, as most do not get in and clean the button well when rinsing the handsets and the magnets rust, what you have done is a quick fix but maybe get a couple of spares from ISC as it might give you some jip later on the switched button.

    Re: problem with buttons..

    i've seen this happen and i suggest you try to "turn" the button half way around and then it would work. its a matter of the magnet not "connecting" well.

    try to turn the button half way and try again untill you get it done.

    let me know if this works.

    Thanks

    I have always soked the handsets in a bucket of fresh water over night after a dive and I have never had a problem with the buttons. As others have said the magnets rust in salt water and do not make good contact with the internal reed switch.
