Hi!

I have a second hand TREX600 with Futaba GY611 gyro. My helicopter gyro functions perform flawlessly. However, I noticed my amplifier screen has black blocks from left to right. Changing values from the radio does not do a thing to the screen. Anyone know what this may have been from, and what do I need to do to remedy this problem.
I try to adjust contrast, but without result...

Thank you,

Andre.

I'm going to assume that the contrast pot may be bad. Try to get in contact with the Futaba Brazilian distributor and see what they can do.

Service is not financially practical. If you post here on RR, I bet you can find a used gy611 for barely the cost of shipping.

There was a post here on Run Ryder going back 5+ years about someone fixing this same problem. I can not remember but I think he took the display apart and cleaned the display contacts and it was good as new again.
