ostc sport turn on problem

I recently bought OSTC computer.


After 45 dives, my dive computer display went blank. I tried to change the battery using a new standard AA battery. When the battery is in place, a red indicator came on for a few seconds and then went off, but the screen remains blank throughout.

I insert a new 3.6 V battery, but the comp stills does not boot up. (red indicator come on for a few seconds, then went off. Dive computer screen does not turn on, i.e no heinrichs weikamp logo at all)
Please help. Thanks in advance. Kamil.

Hi!
I was faced with a similar problem lately.
I bought the OSTC sport in December and used it a couple of times in a swimming pool training with no problems. Then, on the first real dive a couple of weeks ago, it lagged a first time around 19m for 5 minutes and then "froze" at 15m: the timer was continuing but the depth stayed the same for at least 1h until it stopped.
Since then it was impossible to start the computer and the behavior has been similar to what Kamil described (to the exception that it never restarted).
Fortunately I had an extra computer with me but needless to say I am not very happy about it and I hope you can help me fix it quick.
Best regards,
Julián
