cateye velo 5 won't register speed

Last week I looked down at my handlebar and noticed my cyclometer wasn't registering speed. Everything else works including the clock. I thought maybe the wheel magnet had slipped but after checking it and realligning the pickup to the magnet nothing helped. Then I cleaned the computer pickups in the handlebar mount and clipped it back in with no affect. Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure of the brand so the details may be different but this sounds like a problem my wife had. The bar clamp had deformed just enough so that when the removeable computer part was slid into its slot on the clamp it didn't make contact with the leads. The plastic clamp had pulled around the bar so that the mounting surface was convex. Since the contacts are at the top (or bottom?) of the clamp they had been pulled away from the computer. The fix was to loosen the clamp and be careful how everything fit together. It (ahem) wasn't the world's best mechanical design.

Is it still under warranty? I have that same model and the first one I got quit working after about a week. Once the shop I bought it from was satisfied that I had mounted in properly, they took it back and gave me a new unit, which has worked well. (Knock-on-wood that this post won't jinx it.)

Thanks for the help. But it started working again for no reason. Maybe it just needed the little bit if fiddling I did to bring it back up. It may be the mount after all.
