Default Re: Hour meter on Chinese engine?

Just like the Chinese I think that I have reversed engineered this device.

I was looking on the little circuit board in the back of the meter and saw another pad. It seemed to be in a similar position to where the reset buttons are on the other styles of meters..

In reading some of the literature on the manufacturers website, I found the resetting procedure and what to hold down for how many seconds.

I figured this board must still have some similar behaviors. So I tried shorting the pad to one of the reset pads with a bent paperclip and VOILA!

I now have a display.

I'm going to reinstall with some shielding on the leads, maybe some coax.

Here are some pictures if anyone else needs this info.
