    Last night before I went to bed, the weather station was functioning
    normally. When I got up, the display was dead, except for a few digits
    that were dim.

    I unplugged it for about 30 mins. Upon powering back up, everything
    seemed to run normally, except for the barometer display. Only 3 digits
    light up, and those are dimmer than the rest.

    Otherwise, it's keeping good time. Wind speed and direction is ok as
    well as the in/out temperature.

    Before I really get digging into such an old unit, has anyone run into
    this before? I'm thinking the micro-processor is ok since everything
    seems normal except the barometer.

    On some of the Heath lists there are discussions. Someone actually makes
    some new parts for these.

    Isn't this unit backlit with a flourescent tube (standard 4W or 8W)? I
    had one that the lamp would fail fairly often, and you want to replace it
    right away, or it will overheat the ballast supply circuit, and ruin parts
    there...

    Sounds like he has the lower end unit with the LED displays.
