futaba 9ch T9CAP display probs

I am having problems with the display on the T9CAP transmitter. Anyone
else? It stopped working after I used it in slight drizzle. That couldn't
do it. Right?

If enough moisture got into the right place, yes it could. These
radios are not waterproof by any stretch of the imagination.

I very highly doubt there is anything you can do about it yourself.
You'll need to send it to Hobby Services. Check

There is something you can try, that should work. Open up the case as
much as you can and sit it in front of a hot air blower overnight.
Chances are you haven't damaged anything, but the boards are wet, and
leaking.

I left a window open once, in a tropical storm, and the keyboard of a
computer and some of the rest got soaked. I dried it out and it statred
to show signs of ligffe. After ful drying it worked fine for years.


If this doesn't work, follow the advice below.

Re: futaba 9ch T9CAP display probs

There's a marine electronic cleaning spray one of the guys at our field used on
his plane he found one year after he lost it. He showed us the servos, receiver
etc... at a meeting after using it and they looked and worked like new. Sorry I
don't recall the name of the spray but I'm sure you could contact any marine
shop and they'll tell you. Good Luck.

Not of it was rain rather than sea spray.

It just dried out.

I'd still leave it all switched off with the pack out of it for a bit,
in a warm dry place for a bit. Just to make sure.
