Re: Manual for B&Q/"Airforce" PM30 Electricity Tracker
by zzzzap at 2009-01-26 19:49:10 (Blog::Simon)
I Googled airforce PM30 because mine's died in exactly the same way (shows the time but shows zero for everything else). I hoped someone might have a fix.

Thing is, I remember last time I used it I had a similar problem and then after pressing loads of buttons (I didn't have the instructions to hand) it started working again. Unfortunately, I can't remember what I did, but I vaguely remember that I had to set up something I wasn't actually going to use (like the dual price) before it sprang back into life. Could just have been a fluke, though. Anyone any thoughts on this?

What's really annoying is that I've just replaced the batteries. As far as I can see, there's no on/off switch, so if you leave the batteries in they flatten quite quickly.

So basically, far from saving resources, I've wasted a load on this. If anyone's thinking of buying one, I'd advise looking elsewhere.

Problem is, they're probably all made in China.

I had the same problem with the "Powerdown" switch I got off Powergen to automatically turn off my computer peripherals. That lasted all of six months. At that rate it's cheaper to leave things turned on.
