I may have messed something up with my original unit. The display is a little funky. when the unit is off, Auto and Off button LED's are both illuminated, and the display shows the exterior temperature just fine. Once I turn the unit on, no matter the mode, it tries to show exterior and interior set temperature at the SAME TIME. And, in negative degrees lol.

I swapped in my spare unit for the time being. I liked my red Off LED too rolleyes razz

Using your photos take a second look at how you resoldered your resistors and use a meter to check for continuity between the resistors and the PC board traces. I am thinking you have a rosin bubble that is insulating a connection, one of the original resistors was marginal and the heat from resoldering did it in giving you an open or moving the resistance, or a trace is open.

When I re-did my board I used higher wattage/same value/narrower tolerance resistors meant for use in RF applications, that I bought from DigiKey (http://www.digikey.com). I also ended up wire-wrapping the connections as the heat had done in the traces on the board.

I think you're right Albert. I've obviously already swapped the unit out so I can work on it whenever. I see what you're talking about in the pictures, looking back. Easy enough to redo! I just liked my red LED lol.
