Anyone has a solution to this problem?? The buttons on the total station arent responding and the screen is stuck. And everything was fine few hours before.

Are you using an internal battery or the big red external "Brick" battery ?

internal one. i`ve tried several different ones and nothing.

I have a 1205 and have never encountered that problem.  Update firmware and software.  See if that fixes it.  If not, a trip to the service technician is in order.  Good luck!

I have a Gurley transit available, if that helps! No power, no software... ahh, the good old days.  ;)

Hope it is on a Service Contract. and insured the TCR 1200 series instruments are more than 10 Years old and the repair parts for them are no longer available. Have one that the EDM board went out and it is a $20000 boat anchor.

it was a private seller,but an honest one. I returned it to him.
