but as long as there's another, it's not important. I don't need to see the hour meter while underway.
I'm going away for a week but I'm going to try Eric's fix when I get back. My laptop
keyboard has the same problem, bad connection of the ribbon cable. I have to clean and reseat it from time to time as some of the keys stop working.
BTW: I have nearly thirty antique and reproduction clocks in my house so I never know exactly what time it is unless I look at my phone
or the TV.
