Ice Tube Clock stopped working :(

by rjhike on Tue Jul 14, 2020 7:21 pm

After five years, my Ice Tube clock stopped working. There was a "pwr rset" (power reset) message, so I unplugged the clock, plugged it back in and it would work for a day or so. I tried three different power supply cords. Same result. Then there was a "bad batt" message, so I replaced the battery. Now today, nothing that I have tried will get it to work.

Is there a component that I could replace? Is there a way to test it? If so how and what parts?

Something different happened today as unplugged it, for a split second all of the digit would flash. Weird.

Thanks for your help.

I'd start with the Ice Tube troubleshooting guide here: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=27032
Since it has been working OK for some time, the assembly is probably fine. You can skip to the power supply/boost converter section.
