Dare to Repair your watch

A while back I asked if anyone could explain why my Kospet Prime was failing (screen growing dim, flickering and eventually dying altogether). @Edward , for one, opined that since it was a year old, that may just be its expected life expectancy…

UPDATE a month or two later I figured the situation couldn’t get any worse, so I opened it up and removed the battery and a clip just to the side of where the battery attached and reassembled and - viola! - it’s back to normal!!!

Lesson learned: DARE TO REPAIR!

Nice, it’s called the FPC cable and it is prone to getting loose over time.
To be honest it is rare that this fixes the problem and I am really impressed that you got such a good result.
Excellent :clap::clap::clap::+1::+1:

Thank you @Pablo11… Just hoping it will be a long-term fix since I did not attempt to secure it with its original padding.

Well done DD, your are in your PRIME! :grinning: (Still no @Doonsbury?)

Rest assured oh noble, exalted and most venerated (Oh easy stomach! :crazy_face:) Father of the Forum (? :crazy_face:?!!) The ole Doons is alive and well and living the life of Riley in beautiful Queensland. Shoot me your mobile number Pab (His closest friends can call him “Pab”!! :woozy_face:) and I’ll be sure to ring you each and every day to let you know that I am AOK and you can sleep well at night! Boy oh boy! Wait till I tell my friends that the one and only Pab was worried about me?!! They will be able to say “Wow! I knew the ole Doons before he was a celebrity”! :crazy_face: :rofl:) Cheers, "They seek him here…they seek him there…they seek the ole Doons everywhere! :rofl:, Doons

@Doonsbury lol.

It would not be the same without you my friend…
It’s great to hear your extremely questionable sanity again… And I mean it :+1:

One day I will have to make the effort to try and get up to somewhere near you for a beer.

People probably think “hang on, they both live in Australia, how difficult can it be?”
However, the distance between the blue mountains in NSW and wherever you are in Queensland - is no small challenge.
Especially with border control and quarantine etc…

An indication of pure Australian advertising, which I find is always impressive:

Bloody Covid, this is also why I can’t get back to Shenzhen any time soon… Even though I am double vacced with physor - the Chinese insist on 3 weeks quarantine :sob:

They do not recognise our vaccination program… Can’t imagine why :thinking: lol.

In reality this means that I need at least 6 weeks to make the visit work.

But it is extremely important that I get there and secure the future of the Android watch.

Mind you, it is equally important that I make it to have a beer with you at some point :+1::+1::+1::+1:

Gee whizz! Will these compliments never stop! :crazy_face:
Know where you coming from on the getting around bit Pablo! I’ve been trying to get down to Taree. Cessnock and yes, even the Blue Mountains ( I have a mate who lives in Katoomba) for over 18 months now and every time I get set to take off the borders slam shut like a New South Welshman’s wallet when he is called to buy a round of drinks! From that you can deduce that I KNOW when we get together for a beer, well it won’t be the head Honcho greasing the palm of the Barmaid! :rofl:
I am double jabbed myself (Astra…I guess they wanted to see if the Clot got any…er…clots! :woozy_face: :rofl:) (Boy I am giving Gazman some material for free here!) But it must be a damn pain for you from a business point of view!
Anyway pablo…a beer up here or down there is definitely on the calendar…for…say…oh the first Sunday in July in 2025?! :crazy_face: Cheers, “It your shout Doons”!, Doons

At last!` At last! At bloody last!! We agree on something about your…er…“Material”…(And that is being downright charitable Son! :crazy_face:) It is indeed “On the Nose” As a matter of fact, I now keep a clothes peg handy to slip on my hooter when I am going to open one of your comments! But really @Gazman I never dreamed that even you would stoop to comparing my high class, well thought out and devastatingly incisive ripostes (Look it up oh uneducated one! :crazy_face: :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:) to the stuff you pour out! That, if I may be pardoned such a remark is nothing more or less than, …

well…dirty pool! :woozy_face: :crazy_face: :rofl: Cheers, "Doons can do great visual ones as well’!!, Doons

Oh and yes @pablo11 !Nice idea comparing @Gazman stuff to what you find in a Chrissy cracker! I can picture the Lad now, the “BANG”! still ringing in his ears and his little lower lip all a trembling…cheeks wet with tears… as he looks down and realizes that he has the empty half of the cracker! :rofl: :crazy_face: :rofl:

Oh and just in passing fellow Forum members…the pic is of Doons pool…that has been “let go a little” :woozy_face: :crazy_face: and I am inviting all members who would like ot go for a swim…or you can even walk across it :crazy_face: :rofl: …to my place for a Pool (Cleaning!! :woozy_face:) Party!
