    Hello
    New to forum
    I bought a GAM 270 MFL in April 2016 for a project and used it once. Got it out the other day and when powered on the display shows all characters like a test screen. Won’t turn off with the power button. Is there a reset function? Is the micro locked up?

    nice tool otherwise

    thanks

    Welcome to the forum James. I have this level and have not experienced that. How old are the batteries sitting in it? You may also be able to consult the owners manual here as a downloadable PDF in the Support section of its Bosch product page.

    You could also try calling Bosch Technical Support as well. They’re pretty helpful even if it may be out of warranty. 1-877-267-2499

    Hi Kevin,

    Thanks for the reply. To answer your question, the batteries are new. I’ll follow up with the bosch resources you list.

    thanks

    Welcome to the forum ,
    You can try doing a so called hard reset or boot , either by holding down the power button for a few seconds (sometimes it works)
    Or pull out the batteries and wait a few minutes , then re install them
    Or exactly what Kevin suggested

    Hope you get it figured out.
    Would be great if you could respond to this so other members might see how you managed to get it fixed.

    The first thing I would try is to take out the batteries and leave em out for a few minutes and then put them back and see what happens.
