Hey all. Long time detector but newbie to the forum here.

Got an odd prob with my trusty Spectrum XLT. When I turn the unit on, it goes through the standard statup screen showing battery life etc. Then goes to the second screen, which is the balancing procedure. I am only getting the top half of the screen, it flashes constantly, and I can't balance or procede to another screen.

I have sorted out my share of issues with this detector, but this one has me stumped. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

I would suggest contacting Whites and asking them, also Kellyco may be able to answer what's wrong.

Hello
I'm not sure if you have fixed your problem or not but I have fixed several xlt display problems if the problem only shows up on the second screen it's probably one of the ic's on the daughter board behind the display. if the problem is there when you turn on the detector and never goes away it's probably the display. the original display they used had a problem, it had a ribbon connection heat welded to the lcd for the horizontal information and zebra strips for the vertical information the ribbon would would develop intermittent connection over time and cause horizontal lines or whole sections to blank out. whites has a display now that doesn't have this problem. it's very easy to change. it cost about $45 + shipping.
I hope this helps.

cheers
