Display troubles…

Just after arriving back from my one-day-trip to Feldkirch, TW560’s display started acting strange, showing confusing information.

My TWIKE was working fine overall, so it wasn’t any serious problem.

I suspected this to be the same problem I experienced during my 2011 trip to India, where challenging roads made a daughter board from TW560’s new controller from Dreifels a.k.a. DFC 3.0, come loose

Let’s dive in and fix this problem, shall we? All that needs to be done is push the daughter board firmly back onto its contacts. (newer boards are held back by cable ties).

Where is the cable tie I used in India? Ha! My many trips along very bad roads have meant the daughter board vibrated its way through the plastic! I will have to think about a better solution.

I push back the board and all is back to normal – a quick fix! Let’s see how long the board stays in place this time 🙂
