  • Updated 5 months ago
Couple of months ago I bought the 5 in 1 system, with the color screen. Since then, everything was working GREAT, I love the product, but last week I notice that the screen was not with the usual back light, that happened when it is unplugged, I checked and it was plug to the wall. I check the cable, and it was OK, I check the charger with a multimeter, and it shows 5 volts, as it should be. But still the screen is working with the batteries, since then... can someone help me, getting a solution???? THANKS!!!

if your model# is 06006M pictured below, then at the top middle there is a picture of a little light, if you touch that it should light up.

Hi Josiah, yes the model is  06006M. And when I touch the back button the light goes up. In the past the light use to be always ON, and I could selected the intensity of the light. Now the light doesn't remains ON. In addition the "Weather Ticker" on the bottom doesn't show any message, is off. It seems that the charger is not charging the device.  THANKS for your quick response!!!!!!

Hello Diego,

When you press the backlight does the light stay on or only stay on momentarily? If you remove the batteries and use the adapter only does the light stay on? Just so you are aware if you remove the batteries and the adapter is not working this can clear your historical data if you lose power to the display.
