    What is the reading if you open the dry-cab's door, turn off dry-cab, for lets say 1-2 minutes? It should reading around 70-80%RH in no air-cond room.

    erm...i opened door for around 10mins, turned off the dry cabi, and it was still around 35~40% reading...non-air con room...

    maybe the meter needs calibration or sth? but i don't know how..haha

    call the digicabi folks, if its under warranty get it fixed, otherwise just get a digital hygrometer and see whats the real reading in there. if the dehumidifier unit is faulty then its time to change it or might be cheaper to get a new cabinet - and make it digital this time!!

    Not sure if my findings are true. With a new dry cabby, i tend to allow it to stabilise over afew days (min 3days) before putting my gears in it. The initial readings do get very very low and should not be a cause for alarm. This i am referring to the average brands dry cabs out there. But in the case of a made in japan dry cabby or the budget ones, i have no experience using them.

    my digital unit fired up without problems, but i recall the instructions stated that it should be left on and empty for 8 hours or something before use. moral of the story is GO DIGITAL! less headache... but pocket hurts a little more
