Fixing broken clock ...

Postby Delivan » Fri Jul 24, 2015 3:20 pm

The clock in my wife's Bugeye stopped working and after some research I discovered that it is a common problem. It is caused by a faulty solder joint. It is on the "510" resistor. The resistor has the number clearly marked on it and the crack in the solder between one side of the resistor and the circuit board closest to the display and was easy to see. Just touched the joint with a hot solder iron and it joined back up and now works perfectly.. It was easy to get the clock out and easy to pull apart so a DIY worth trying before shelling out $105 for a new one or $50ish for a 2nd hand one that may be about to have the same problem...Cheers..
