    Protege 9.0 computer flashing

    Got a new Planet Bike Protege 9.0 computer today, but I'm having a problem with it. Every 2.5 seconds or so the display flashes off then on again. Always the same amount of time between flashes. When in standby (clock only mode) it doesn't flash.

    Any ideas on what might be causing it? :|.

    sorry, no idea what would be causing it. but Planet Bike has great customer service, I've had them replace the wiring harness on one occasion and the head unit on another for my Protege 9.0. head to their website to get the contact email and drop them a line. i bet they hook you up with a new one. i really like the 9.0, lots of features and big display with lots of info. it's worth the effort of getting it replaced if necessary.

    Mine did the same thing. A new battary cured it. I have been through 2 in 2 years. Could be a bad battary from the start.
