Blackburn cycle computer - Problems

Mar 28, 2010
Visit site
I have a Blackburn Delphi 5.0 cycle computer, the cadence function stopped working.
I've checked the installed position, battery and connections and everything is right.
Can anyone give me any suggestions to solve the problem?

I had a similar issue and it turned out the magnet was the problem. I had to put a little shim behind the magnet as it wasn't close enough to the censor to get a consistent reading on rough terrain.

Also try either flipping/moving the magnet, or change it out completely. If that doesn't work, I'd say go back to the shop where you purchased the computer, or call Blackburn direct.

Good luck.
