    Hi all. DIY virgin when it comes to central heating. I had a power cut today went to check the times on the central heating programmer,but absolute jack on the display?
    checked the fuses and all okay, the backlight works but nothing on the display and no button function.

    any ideas?

    cheers, the cold shower kid previous known as the hot shower kid!! :cry:

    There is a battery back up in the programmer which needs replacing. You will get one from any heating supplier and takes seconds to fit. Battery should be replaced every five years I think, costs about a pound for each year.

    Thanks for the advise Cozzmic. Any ideas how you get into the programmer. i can see no logical points on entry, no screws and dont want to force the cover off. there is a slot in the bottom that looks like is designed to take a flat screwdriver, but onthing else. amny advice would be apprecaited, once again thats for the battery info.

    have a good days

    regards

    Underneath, towards the right, there's a slot for a screwdriver on the join iirc. Push up with the screwdriver and you can pull the front half to hinge it upwards.
