    I was incorrect, and seems so is vitally. Thanks for posting up. I like this weird stuff when it happens, it gives me pause and motivation to learn more and refresh.

    Exactly the way a878bob wrote already in his first comment. I find it a bit alarming wondering about non-calibrated cells, or do I miss anything?

    I was wrong :( I pulled the sensor out and the screen shows .00

    Fail means the sensor calibration is lost or the cell mV are out of range
    0.0 means there's calibration but the cell is reading 0mV

    I'm unclear. When you inserted the new cells, did you then do a calibration on the handset at some point before you dived the unit?

    Yes absolutely. After the new cells were incerted calibration was done to check and again the morning before the first dive and worked 100%, failure was at the end of the2nd dive for the day. However since then I've recalibrated it as per advice and again before diving it this weekend as per procedure and it worked perfect. Did a 90 minute dive on Friday without failure.
