After being fine for several days and picked up after transport, I found that one part of the Altera DE2 display is not working, you see where it is a 9 there should be an 8 so it is just like that part should be lit be isn't and that part of the display always fails to light:
So it fails the test, should I try and contact Altera for a warranty or something since the board is brand new? Any ideas? I think everything seems that the fourth unit from the right is broken in the southwest position. Do you agree?
There are ways to programmaticly light that part of the display as described in the manual but I didn't try, is that any idea if it fails the test? It is broken isn't it?
after some more tests and contact with the supplier's support and sales, the supplier has decided to send me new parts i.e.
Part No. Description Quantity Reference MDL-3015-ELG 7-Segment (Common Anode), RoHS 5
Do you think this will work to replace the faulty part? How do I replace the part once I've gotten it from the supplier?
I took it to a computer shop and they could solder on a new segment and now it's working. I'm real glad. Now I got two FPGA and I'm going to contact Altera if they want the DE2-115 back since all my development is for the DE2.
