XQ38F Screen Greying out

Post by Spanner » 15 Oct 2018, 21:30

Screen went solid grey and froze twice on me tonight. Was fine once turned off and powered up again, anyone else had the same. If it a fault it is still under warranty.

Mine does it quite often you don't need to turn it off just a quick press on power button will make it calibrate again it's the shutter sticking

Mine is only 2 month old and has done this once.
Is it something to worry about?

Mine is older and does it on occasion same since new.
My eye cup and shad has split and parted company from the unit I am hoping to get it done under warranty as it's glued on but I have to wait till i finish a job before I can send it back.

My XP50 has been doing it now and then on Auto Calibrate since I got it ....sometimes as greying out, sometimes as a ghost image where it freezes the last image before calibrating.

The shutters on my previous HD38S’s on Auto C seemed to last about 18months before starting to stick and a quick service by Thos Jacks sorted the shutter.

So with that in mind, I’ve now got it set to Semi Auto Calibration and only press the button on start up and now and again if I feel the picture has degraded. I certainly don’t miss the picture freezing on Auto Calibrate just at the wrong moment!
