    Default Wanted: Clock for S2 505

    Hi, I'm looking for a clock to suit the dashboard on a series 2 505, with all the segments working. At the moment I can't tell if it's 6:30 or 6:50!

    I think there is a long queue for these Scotty. I have a stack of non working ones. After reading a good AF thread on resoldering them I was hopeing to get them going, but I have had no success.

    405's have the same clock.

    I have successfully resoldered the clocks in 505s, (I have done three in total).
    If you are anywhere near Sydney I can do it for you, (What have I got to lose if it doesn't work).

    PM me for details.

    Generally, the problem is usually dry joints, as I understand. I'm interested to know if this is what Gamma normally finds. I have at least two spare clocks, which I havent tried recently but believe are both working 100%. I have 2 series 2 cars so one's needed as a spare

    Gerry dry joints seems to be the culprit but the ones Gamma resoldered for me also had a problem with the light bulb holders. I tested the globes in a holder from the instrument cluster, all OK, put them in the holder from the clock, did not work.

    I got some bulb holders from a mate (out of an instrument panel from god knows what) and finally success. I can't see whats wrong with them but they could have been some of the reason the clocks were on the blink.

    I don't think the clock in the diesel has worked for over 10 years.

    Thanks everyone!

    I've pulled it apart and there are no dry joints in this clock. There is a small imperfection, not really big enough to call a chip, more like a manufacturing defect, at the edge of the LCD screen where it meets the conductive rubber strip. The chip coincides perfectly with the track from the dead segment.

    So my theory is that this clock has never worked properly from the factory!

    If I can't find a local replacement from a 505 or 405 in the very near future, I'll give you a PM Tomb, thanks very much!
