I have a Kestrel 4000. The backlight will not operate. Further, the LED screen is virtually unreadable when the unit is in temperatures near or below 40° F. I have replaced the batteries as well as clearing the memory and holding down the power button

Hello, Unfortunately the unit is 15 years old and not repairable because it is ultra-sonically welded together. The only recourse I can offer is that we offer trade-ins off the price of a new Kestrel. The Kestrel 5000 would be the equivalent model these days. You can read about that policy here: https://kestrelinstruments.com/kestrel-trade-in-trade-up Regards, Joe Racosky jracosky@nkhome.com
