I got a Hyperion 615i DUO3 charger here, the older version. I was starting a charge cycle recently when all of a sudden the display text faded away and the backlight remained on.

I pulled the power to the charger, and started it back up. When the charger starts up, the display works (shows firmware version, model number, etc) up until about 2 seconds after the memory bank data displays.

Is it possible I fat-fingered the display contrast down to zero in a few very quick button pushes, without intent?

I'm going to connect the unit to a PC and check all the program settings and check the contract setting, if able.

Anyone else see this happen?

Sounds like a display issue. I have two original EOS0610DUO chargers and they both still work fine, display and all. A better place to ask this would be the thread on RC Groups. There is a long thread on the DUO product line. Lots of help available there.

My original Duo had a blue LCD that was hard to see so I replaced it with the yellow one used in the Duo3s from http://www.aircraft-world.com/shopexd.asp?id=5736 No stock though, see if someone else has. Only $8 & easy to change yourself. It doesn't say the replacement screen is for Duo3 but this is old info. I'd imagine it will be fine. This LCD next to my Duo3s look identical.

I contacted Empire RC and they will replace it under warranty.

Thanks for the responses, gents!
