  • Alex (Gicar) PID LED segment failure

    An LED segment has stopped working on the PID display on my Alex Duetto II (the blue coloured one of that makes a difference). A bit of a PITA.

    Is this fixable?

    Cheers

    I looked at a second hand Alex PID that was onto its third Gicar display, and even it was missing a segment! So my guess is it's an ongoing issue.

      Yeah I have read about others having the same problem. Just wondering if the LED display is fixable or not. I'd imagine it wouldn't be an easy task.

      Cheers

        It's very doable with the correct replacement display and a desoldering station handy. That first part is easier said than done though sadly.

            Same thing happened to me so I got a new one installed. Wasn't too expensive.
