So, we wont revisit the Nixon conversations of years past, but long story short, the wife got me the LODOWN tide watch for christmas cause the battery in my freestyle tide watch finally died after 8 years.

They other day, the light button stopped producing light and when you would hit the button, the watch system would reboot itself.... It just did it again... the date resets to 2010 and all this stuff. Now, the mode button doesnt respond. I cant even set it back to the correct tide and date... its stuck on encinitas, in 2010....

I assume my only option is to take it back to the surf shop, have them send it out for service, which always take like a freaking month...

Anyone ever tinker with fixing one of these things, or do i have to bite the bullet and just be without one for like a month or 2 and send it back?
