The following information was
passed on to us from one of our
DSOMs. It’s being printed here for
your use in the event that you have
this specific issue with your Fluke
Original 80 Series display.
The following instructions have been
tested and found to correct the
fading/ghost image condition on the
contributing DSOM’s meter.
If you have further questions, please
contact the Fluke Service
Department at the number listed at
the end of this article.
This information is provided directly
from Fluke Instruments and any
concerns regarding the procedure
should be directed to their Service
Department.
Instructions for correcting a Faded or
Ghosted Fluke Original 80 Series
display are as follows:
1) Remove the outside/external
case covers.
2) Remove the battery.
3) Remove the circuit board and place
face down on a clean work
surface.
4) Remove the screw and the flat
plastic cover covering the back of
the board.
5) Place the board in front of you so
that a long side is facing you.
(Note: the side should be chosen so
that the hand which is not your
primary hand, left or right handed,
will be used to move the plastic clips,
which secure the cover to the board.)
6) Your primary hand should be
placed holding the center edges of
the board.
7) Move the clips back just enough
to release them. Use your
primary hand to rotate the edge
of the board upward, pulling the
board away from the clips on the
opposite side and out.
8) Turn the board component
side up.
9) The metal patterns at the top of
the board, where the display had
been should be cleaned with a
clean # 2 pencil eraser.
10) Gently, tap the rubber chips or
filings away.
11) Reassemble and test the display.
If this does not correct the display,
please contact Fluke Service
@ 1-888-993-5853 to make
arrangements to submit to Fluke.
If someone should ask, the TCM
logic for Slope Control has been
changed for the above listed vehicles.
It will now activate on downhill
slopes/grades greater than 12% and
vehicle speed under 48.5 MPH (78
km/h).

H6 A/C COMPRESSORS
CUTTING OUT
If you come across an H6 A/C system
where the compressor is cutting out
when the A/C is engaged, it might
be the revolution sensor on the
compressor that is causing the
problem. To determine if this is the
cause of the concern, you can find
diagnostic information in the 09/01
T.I.P.S.
Once you have determined that the
revolution sensor is the problem, be
advised that the sensor is now
available as a separate part. It is no
longer necessary to replace the entire
compressor as in the past. Refer to
Service Bulletin 10-74-02 for more
information.
