Recently we have been receiving reports of unacceptably short battery standby life on some recent Cyber Commander units
. We have traced this issue down and have a firmware solution, downloadable here (V36): V36 is compatible with CCs with any vintage LCD display and extends the battery standby life to approximately 6 month as per the original design.http://www.paulcbuff.com/pcb2009/cyberc ... tions.html
The issue was caused by a processor change by the vendor in the LCD assembly that caused the display to not go into complete sleep mode when in standby and was discovered and corrected in the past two days.
We don't have exact records of which recent customers received CC units with the new display, but we believe the number is rather small.
Since we realize doing a firmware update may be inconvenient for some user, we will be happy to mail a new Micro SD card formatted to V36 on request, along with installation instructions, to any user that is experiencing this issue.
I personally apologize for inconvenience this issue may have caused customers.
