My ser no is 594000516 I think this is a early model
When I turn the on switch or power up with the ignition the unit displays for a few seconds the number 8 along with all the strength led's and all the band led's laser,ka,k,x lit the unit then always settles to display the letter E and the lower arrow is constantly lit as well as one led on the strength meter. at this point If I press the power button the letter P is displayed for a few seconds with the strength leds doing a scrolling dance and the center arrow is constantly lit ,after a few seconds the unit settles again and then displays a small letter L on it's own in the display.If I press the power button from the small L , I get a large L then press again and the letter A then press again and I get the small L again.
No matter what I do the start/power up is always he same I know something is wrong but what? con't
I should add that this problem only started after my battery went flat with the unit swithed on before this the Vallentine would start up as normal in the selected as the factory default .
Any help would be appreciated Vallentine don't accept units from the UK as they won't /can't ship them back.
