  • SeeSnake Compact Question

        Probably your count plus unit, take it to a ridgid center to be sure though.

          you're right, i don't own a compact. but i looked at it's specs and it only does feet and inches. no date or time.

            I have the see snake too, and the exact same problem. The foot meter works sporatic. sometimes it starts working as I'm pulling it back, and starts going into negative numbers. I haven't been able to figure it out. Never had to push any buttons, or do anything special to get the counter to work before.I know if I send it in for repair of anything, its gonna be minimum of $500.

              Just a shot in the dark, could the button cell battery in the Counter IR be bad?

                All great suggestions gents but unfortunately this one is definitely an issue with the slip ring. With the compact the counter is built onto the slip ring board (no external controls or buttons etc). It sounds like you may have gotten water into the slip ring area and corroded the board. My suggestion is to get the tool into the nearest SS service center for evaluation. Not sure how you normally clean your push cable but this type of damage is commonly caused by EU's filling the drum with water or even pressure washing it while it is still in the drum. You defintely do not want to allow this to happen. Any questions feel free to give us a ring in Tech Support. 800-519-3456.

                  I have a mini seesnake model#71RK Ridgid, with the same problem that counter don't work. Mine has enclosed box on outside of cable drum. I am the only one that has ever used it, and keep it inside heated garage. Its in very good condition, & has not been abused at all. Any ideas what could be wrong? Works sometimes, but not when I want it to. This has the counter that comes up on video screen.

                    I have a 71RK unit and the transmitter is not sending the signal to my scout unit. Doesn't the 71RK unit come with the 512 transmitter built into the camera head?
