My 4-month-old 320+v4 worked well the first couple of months. The last couple of months, when I start my day, I have found the counts at 0 and not incrementing. I would get it to start counting again by pressing any key or power on/off, but no longer. I have tried hard reboot (remove battery for 10 seconds) to no avail. Now after power on the CPM stays at 0 and never increments. Any ideas? Thanks!

suggestion: take the tube out and measure voltage across the tube holder points.
If you then get voltage ( somewhere between 110 and 150V) the tube is defect. Otherwise something in the remainder of the counter.

Hi Ozark1, it may need service. Please for warranty.

Hello EmfDev, Using Fluke 117 set to DC Volts. Touching either DVM probe to either side of the tube will sometimes cause a count. Voltage drop across the tube is ~1 volt but drops to zero within a few seconds. This behavior is often reproducible by waiting a minute or two between retries. Thanks.

Hi Ozark1, it seems there may be issues with the tube or the board. Can you test by opening the device, if you have a multimeter, check the voltage between the tube terminals, if you do not have a multimeter touching the tube terminals with your fingers if that produce a count? Thanks.
