Re: Terminally ill PL-310 ... or not

The first suggestion is to make sure the words NiMH battery do not appear in the display when using alkaline batteries. The second is to make sure those words appear when using rechargables. Only use NiMH rechargables... do not use Lithium-Ions or NiCad's.

There is a [///} below the "M" button. When the power is off, that button toggles between Alkalines (no display) and NiMH (displayed as "NiMH battery" on left side of display)
