I have a Fluke Cable Analyzer DTX-1800, which is a Network Cable tester. The screen is all washed out and is really hard to read when I look at it. I have to view it, looking at it, from almost a 10 degree angle to read the screen.
The unit is kind of expensive to replace and I often dabble in electronics as a hobby, I decided to open it up and see if I might be able to figure out the problem. I took the unit apart and found it to be kind of dirty and their is some corrosion of some of the circuits, specifically in areas where it is exposed to the elements (like the ports and the area where the Li-ion battery plugs in). I did a little clean-up on the corrosion.
The LCD screen is a HANTRONIX, INC Model HDM3224CL-S-T.... When I first turn on the screen, for about a split second, the color appears normal on the screen and then immediately becomes washed out in brightness and can only be read from a steep angle.
So what I am thinking is, the problem might not be the screen but something else, as it does display normally for a split second. Anyone have any opinions or suggestions on this?
I am guessing my next step will be to get the specs for the screen and maybe try to connect it to something else to see if it displays normally.
