new pl8 won't beep

hi,
i bought a new pl8 and i'm having a small issue. i can't make the charger beep correctly at the end of the charging when using preset #3. i set it to beep 6 times. preset #7 beeps correctly, but #3 only beeps twice. the 1st beep is very short, the second one is normal, but only two beeps instead of 6.
what could be wrong, please? a firmware issue? it is the latest version.
thanks.

The "Charge Done Beeps" in the Audio Setting section of the Options Tab in the CCS is a global setting and cannot be changed at the preset level. At the preset level under the Fuel tab there is the option "Sound Beep at" to choose charge % to sound two or three beeps at (DPL8 manual says two, DPL8 CCS mouse over says three) beeps.

That's odd that it seems to be preset specific. It might be worth restoring the preset from the library preset, or perhaps do a factory restore (on the firmware tab). Be sure to backup your presets before performing a factory restore.

Good deal! Did you just restore the preset, or do the complete factory restore?
