Anyone else had problems with these:
DB-36 #1 Bought December 2002, worked great.
DB-36 #2 Bought (wholesaler) July 2003, display faded 3 days later while pressing buttons
DB-36 #3 Couldn't return second one, bought this one around 2004-2005, faded less than one block from the store, returned for refund.
DB-36 #4 Bought sometime in 2007, faded 2 days later, back it went.
DB-36 #1 The first one I bought is dying. LED flickers when the light button is pressed, lasted 7 years, but that's too short for a watch.
I'm not the only one, but I don't know how others aren't having the same problem, maybe they're just not paying attention.
Each time I bought a new one I thought THIS TIME they fixed it for sure, it was just a bad run during a specific timeframe, but no .
It appears to be a bad connection to the battery or a bad solder joint.
I like the appearance, features, price, and CR2025, but this thing is a dud.
