    Angry Mudman screen on the fritz...wth??

    The screen has been fading in and out. Replaced the battery and it worked fine. Now the screen is blank and the only way to view it is if you tilt it completely forward. I checked and rechecked the battery connection. Dont know what the eff is wrong with it and its driving me nuts.

    Hmm...that's an odd one. What brand of battery did you use for the replacement, and where did you buy it? It sounds to me like the battery is out of juice (defective or old, possibly?)

    My watch guy put 2 bad batteries in my watches. Then I bought some tools and will be replacing most of my batteries myself now.

    I know it is the obvious but you did do the 'Reset' procedure properly when you changed the battery did you?
    It may be worth doing it again in any event, just in case, as it doesn't always work properly first time.
