B&G Hornet 4 problem

I have some very old B&G instruments and they used to work a few weeks ago but the wind speed unit seems to have given up the ghost. I've attached a picture which shows the problem. Before this failure, the wind speed and direction on the remote display was very inaccurate. Some of the buttons on the unit I can't even push in any more. Is one of the buttons causing this error? Can I disassemble the unit and repair the buttons? Anyone seen this before? I know they're old but I am not ready to replace them and would love to get them working for a bit more.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have just removed this same unit from my boat along with the sister depth speed monitor and gravity switch to update to new stuff. Pm if interested.
