Problem with PM4/logcard

Post by Paul Victory » Fri Feb 28, 2014 6:53 pm

When I was doing today's CTC challenge, the screen went blank just after I had finished the final interval. Some vertical lines appeared on the screen just before this happened. It came back after a few seconds but there was no record of the CTC workout on the logcard. Luckily, I had written down the results of each interval during the rest periods and I had seen my final split before the monitor crashed. So the only thing I lost was a note of my rest meters.

I did three subsequent rows and there was no problem with these. So it seems to have been a very temporary issue. But I would like to take whatever steps I can to ensure this doesn't happen again as it would be extremely annoying if the PM4 crashed towards the end of a TT that was going well. I guess the most obvious step is to check that the firmware is up to date and install the most recent version if needed. Is there anything else I should be doing?
