    Hi, guys. I/ve got an issue with subj. A while ago during my confined water training, I've missed that the battery of my EON Core was low. I've got a message to recharge the battery, but I ignored it due to some issues with my student. After I surfaced I found that my computer is switched off because the battery was down. I charged it but the algorithm was locked. Do I have any chance to unlock it by myself or I must wait this 48 hours penalty? I didn't find an answer on the forum, maybe I don't how to search, so please help me. Thank you.

    PS Sorry for my English, it's not my native language, hope that everything is clear in my message. :)

    What’s the purported reason for the lockout from a manuf. perspective? @scubadada ?

    Hi Clammy,

    You mistake me for someone with some inside knowledge, I am not, sorry I can't help you here.

    Like most, I've always thought it is try to keep you from diving after a violation. Of course, the computer does not know if you cut a stop short by 30 seconds or something of much greater magnitude.

    Craig, this lockout is as a result of a battery that lost its charge. Not sure why a 48 hr lockout is enforced? Seems fishy to me.

    Da Clam.

    Sorry Cliff, I did not go back in the thread and read. My battery went dead in my VT3 once. I replaced the battery, it did not lock me out. No idea why a fully discharged battery would end up locking you out unless they assume your dive without a functional computer would put you at some risk for DCS.

    It's Suunto. My guess (just a guess, no idea really) is their philosophy is safety first (or, maybe more likely liability coverage first as the safety a temporarily bricked computer offers is highly debatable) which consequently would then have to mean to assume the worst (diving / DCS causing wise) could have happened while the battery was dead and hence the lockout?

    Did it go dead while on a dive (or within a day or two of diving)? Or did it die while not in use?

    If it dies mid-dive and is no longer able to track the remainder of the dive profile and perhaps even subsequent dives, I can certainly understand it locking out for some period of time to KNOW that it is starting up once again with a blank slate. Why 48 instead of 24? Probably a good reason, just don't know what that is.

    There used to be a computer tool called "suunto tools". It allowed you to do several functions including wiping the memory of the device (it would wipe your whole history).

    You could try a search for this tool. Mind the warnings and your own nitrogen load. If found, use with caution.
