    Sigma 1606 L computer question

    Hey guys;

    I've had a Sigma 1606 L cycle computer on my bike for a while. I could swear it has a 'back light' feature, for illumination while riding at night. But I can't for the life of me remember how to activate the light. I've gone to the Sigma website and poured over the PDF of the owners manual, but can't find a mention of the LCD Back Light feature. Maybe I am mistaken. Or perhaps someone here who is using the same computer can shed some light on the situation for me.

    Activate the backlight by pressing both left buttons (top and bottom) at the same time, to deactivate, hold those same buttons until backlight goes off.

    Thanks a bunch. I'd tried that, but it only seemed to make the whole screen go blank for a while - as if it was shutting it down. I think I'll grab a new battery or two at lunch and see what that does for the situation.

    I can confirm that it's you have to simultaneously press both of the left hand buttons. It would seem that your battery is probably dead/dying, as when you switch on the backlight it turns of briefly then turns off. Once the backlight feature is "on" you just need to press any button and will light up for a few seconds.
