DIVE COMPUTER SERVICING
We keep virtually every single part of the latest Scubapro and Suunto Diving Computers for servicing and repair works. Whether is it a sticking button, a damaged sensor, a cracked screen, we will be able to replace them. For the older generation of Suunto Dive Computers, there are only certain services we can render. For more information, please use the link above “Supported Models” to find out exactly what can be done for your Scubapro and Suunto Dive Computer and what sort of services cannot be performed anymore.
TWO (2) YEARS 200 DIVES
Suunto recommends that all Suunto Diving Computers should be fully serviced every 2 years or 200 dives, whichever comes first. This service includes the battery change, replacement of all case to button O-rings, depth and water contact O-rings, battery compartment O-ring, crystal O-rings, and exterior cleaning. Most computers that are flooded after a period of time, are mostly caused by negligence by owners, failing to follow the recommended full servicing. This is especially important for divers who have computers older than 4 years old.
STANDARD PROCEDURES OF BATTERY CHANGING OF SUUNTO DIVE COMPUTER
Have you ever wondered what is really done or NOT DONE when you send your Suunto Dive Computer to a dive
Let us explain the proper procedure. A well-informed and vigilant consumer is the best-protected consumer. And you should be, after spending so much money on your Suunto Dive Computer.
When you send your Suunto, Scubapro, Oceanic, Mares or Cressi scuba diving computer to us, the first thing we will be checking for will be damage on the case, lens
The buttons of your Scuba Dive Computer is one of the items that are usually not well taken care of. We will be performing a visual check on the integrity of the buttons of your scuba dive computer.
WATER SENSOR TESTING
The next test that is performed is a dryland check of your depth sensor to see if it can be activated. This is usually done before opening up your Scuba Dive Computer for a battery change.
Another important test is the audible alarms of your Suunto Diving Computer. Most
SCREEN AND BACKLIGHT
For older Dive Computers, we will be conducting a visual inspection of your screen and backlight. This allows us to inform you if it is necessary to change any parts.
TEMPERATURE & COMPASS
A test of the temperature for your Dive Computer will be conducted. And for owners of Suunto D6i or other models with digital compass, they will be checked for accuracy as well.
Once we have completed with all the visual check, the battery compartment will be carefully opened. A battery consumption test will be conducted to check if there’s any module failure.
CLEANING OF UNIT
Your Scuba Dive Computer is now ready to be clean in an ESD environment. A detailed inspection will also be conducted internally to look any irregularities in your unit. Only ESD cleaning devices are used.
CHANGING OF BATTERY
YourScuba Dive Computer is ready for a battery change now. A brand new battery, an original lubricated O-ring for your unit will be carefully installed with the appropriate recommended tools.
Once your Scuba Dive Computer has been carefully cleaned, assembled and installed with a new battery, your unit will go through a dry leak test, followed by a wet leak test.
Your Scuba Dive Computer will now do a simulated dive to 40m, so that we can check your depth sensor and the intergrity of your unit at depth. This will take approximately 10 minutes.
Any work rendered by us will have an extended warranty of 12 months. If you are changing a battery, we will warrant the battery for 12 months. Should your computer be flat, we will change it for your for free.
WHY COME TO US
There is nothing more important to us than the privilege of maintaining your gear. As a family-owned business our philosophy is simple: Take care of everyone’s equipment as if it is your own. No compromise, just excellent service. Orpheus Dive has a dedicated anti-static room for all our computer servicing needs.
Be A Well Informed Diver
All dive centers that offer to service scuba diving computer should have the appropriate tools and service parts available at their store. As a well-informed customer, please check with the shop and inspect all their inventory before committing to their services. If a dive centre has their own facilities, insist that they do the changing of batteries in front of you and personally witness the watertight testing in their chamber facilities and also in a ESD room.
Original & Authorized Parts
Only authorized battery kits are used when replacing batteries in dive computers and instruments. Not all batteries perform the same and the batteries supplied in these kits have been tested for suitable performance. The kits include all the parts that should be replaced once the battery compartment has been opened.
Your computer’s watertight seals are critical. That’s why a battery replacement isn’t just changing the battery. The battery compartment o-ring will be replaced, and in some cases even the battery compartment door is replaced. Zoop, Mosquito (D3), Stinger, Spyder, and D-series computers get leak tested in the Witschi Proofmaster S and all computers are test dived to 130′ (40m) in a state-of-the art pressure pot to check all computer functions.
Any scuba gear repair, servicing or change of battery will have a warranty period of twelve (12) months. Any claims made during the warranty period, we will not charge a single cent should any problem arise. Also, if you do change your dive computer batteries elsewhere, be sure to check your last dive. The watertight chamber test would have caused the computer to logged a dive.
WHAT IS AN ESD ENVIRONMENT AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT
What is Static Electricity
Static electricity is an imbalance of electric charges on material. The charge is static, in contrast to current electricity which flows through conductors such as wiring in a circuit. Static electricity can build up easily when insulators, materials that have a high resistance to electric current and don’t conduct electricity well, come into contact with each other.
Some electronic components, such as your scuba diving computers, are very sensitive to static and the sudden discharge of electricity from your body to the component, which is harmless to humans, can cause irreparable damage to the components or devices. We have seen many dive centres who have changed batteries for divers without an ESD environment and causing damages to dive computers such as the compass found in some models.
