    Default SPI 0-18” Digital Height Gage reading “Err” going up and down

    As the title states. This problem happens when I crank the handle up at almost any speed, faster seems worse. I get Err and it will go away if I continue up or down. Does it sporadically doesn’t appear to be in the same spot. Any thoughts on DIY fix or how to verify what is causing it?

    Thanks

    My first question is "How old is it?"

    Second question "When did it start doing that?"

    My SPI calliper shows ERR when the battery is inserted awkwardly, so it could be a lose connection?

    I may be wrong but does it show ERR-1 or ERR2, or just ERR? I think they have different meanings.

    So if you go up/down really slow, it's okay?

    It may mean that there's some contamination on the surface that is "read" by the electronics. Usually, a good wipedown with some alcohol will clean the oil/coolant/spooge, or whatever's on it.
