I have a 6500 MK1 that works fine except the LCD screen is getting difficult to read. Does anybody know of any possible adjustments or (more likely) a source of a replacement screen?

I’m not personally aware of any adjustments to the screen itself and like you, my initial thought would be a replacement screen.

I’m sure you have gone through the options with regards to contacting Fluke Service and also the possibility of purchasing a second hand unit, however I suppose it becomes a question of is it economically viable to repair given the current condition.

Regards Carl

Hi Carl
I'll post my thoughts because they may be of general interest.
I did think of a used 6500mk1 - it would probably cheaper than repairing ours but then the screen problem could come back again in short order. They now do a '6200' which looks like a cut down 6500mk1. It has the same LCD screen but at least we would know we'd get a few years before the problem happened again.
I'm still interested in getting a spare screen for a self repair if anybody knows a source of spares? I have contacted Fluke UK but no reply so far.
