I've just innstalled a brand new Transporter, everything worked perfect for a couple of days, when I suddenly noticed that the left display where cutting of the letters at the top. When I change to medium fonts the upper text disapears.

I've done a couple of factory resets and changed the language from Norwegian to English, without any resaults.

After the factory resets the Transporter is displaying the all the fonts correctly, but after 10-15 minutes the left upper field displays just fades out, and turns completly dark.

I tried unplugging the powercord, and the same thing happens, everything works perfect for 10-15 minutes and the it changes.

Any suggestion, is it a hardware fault?

This is a hardware fault caused by a batch of bad displays that had overheating problems.

It seemed to have been limited to some early SB3s though, this is the first case I've seen of a Transporter affected by this.

Contact support.

Thanks for a quick response, when you write contacte support, do you mean the Internet shop where i bought the Transporter or do you mean somewhere else?

Sorry to revive this old thread, but I have the same issue. Waiting on a reply from tech support, but in the meantime, perhaps toca can chime in and let us know how his issue was resolved? If not, I'll post an update when I have one.

Thanks
