Hardware problem
« on: January 17, 2011, 07:17:03 pm »

Hi,

I've used my GS-505 on about 3 windsurfing holidays...salty water etc. Went to charge it today ( as usual) and a small piece of plastic has failed making me have to use tape to attach the charger to the watch. Any chance of a new watch? You might want to change the design of the charger attaching to the watch.

I cant seem to attach photos so here is a link to photos of problem.

The same happened to me for 2-3weeks ago even if I have not used my device in rough conditions, just normal running (temperatures between -25...+25C).

I just added some drops of 2-component glue and now the charging clip stays very well in place again.

Hi Geoffrey,

Please find below:



The crack is not completely visible as there is now some glue covering it, but I guess you can see that the lower edge of the hole was broken. Even if the glue is not very thick, it keeps the clip well in place.

Now the same happened to the other side of my GH-505, as well...

I guess the same fix will be applicable again... a couple of drops 2-component epoxy glue.

Hi Ultrapetita,

It is pity. The spring force of cardle is too hard and make the cavity broken.
Do you want to repair?

Geoffrey
