Just returned from some travel and went out to try new OAL tools and my digital Caliper (Hornady)is "all over the place." I can still read the numbers on bar manually but not very precisely. So I changed the battery with no change.
Symptom: if I pull and reinstall the battery it works well for about five minutes then the numbers on screen start jumping all over the place, it won't Zero or turn off.
This is not one of the New tools, I've used it with no problems for a month or so, then left it outside in semi cold for a month
Did I freeze it? it was out in garage in Kodiak weather, only maybe a few below 32F while gone. Was surely left off. I used the "new" battery that came as a spare, so i guess I'll go get another battery and try it, any experience with this.
