I installed a new, old stock WS150 wind
instrument on my boat this year.
I installed the display in my instrument cluster in the seahood designed for this purpose, but did not properly secure the cables
. Eventually, the masthead connector pigtail (an 8" long, 5-pin connector) fell loose and was dragged between the companionway hatch
and seahood. This put quite a bit of strain on the cable behind the LCD display and pulled the 5 wires right out of the circuit board.
Since this is an older unit and Standard Horizon doesn't do wind
instruments anymore, I don't know if I'll get any support from them on this, although I did fill out their support form on their website. I just want to re-solder the wires back in myself and get on with life. I am not seeking any kind of warranty repair here. However, there is no indication as to which wire goes where on the PCB.
Would it be possible for anyone on this list that has identical hardware
to open up their unit and take a picture of the back?
Alternately, I have seen a StandardHorizon user posting
in this forum. Perhaps they could supply the needed info?
All help is appreciated.
