I've got a cosmetically very nice Fidelity CC6 with a display problem -- 6 of the 14 LED segments out on the display.  I've attempted to troubleshoot and reflowed a bunch of solder, but now I'm starting to think the problem is the driver chip (especially since 8 work and the rest don't and drivers are usually handled in banks of .  Any schematics available for fidelity units, or is there a common failure for this type of unit that I should be turning my attention to?


I have repaired a couple of old chess machines with bad LED displays. The problem has been with the LED modules - some of the segments burn out after a while. Try lighting each of the segments by jumpering or applying voltage directly to the LED module. If the module is bad you can usually find a  replacement. Hope this helps.
