Yes, I think the tube needs to be replaced.
Please write on the mail and I will send you the troubleshooting table to troubleshoot the assembly.
Please use our support mail address to send some pictures of the Tube.
And we will provide the assistance to you.
You should first check the Power Supply.
If Tubes do not light up it means the Board do not receive enough power.
Please do that first.
You need to find the following line and insert the following value:
(menuPosition == TimeIndex) || (modeChangedByUser == false) ) modesChanger(); – SlotMachine diactivated.
This wi;; diactivate the SlotMAchine feature.
However are are strongly do not recommend it,
This features saves Tubes lifetime.
You should read the documentation to the Arduino Board.
It needs 12V Power Supply. Specifically with conjunction with our Boards.
It seems like the Power Supply is weak.
You should try to Power it up from another one.
You need to use 12V 1A Power Supply of good quality.
Yes, it is possible.
You can use the Arduino IDE functionality for it for example.
We have not been experimenting with this possibility.
Please write back to us on mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
And we will provide the reference pictures for the Board.
Please check for any short circuits on the Bottom Control NCM109 Board.
Also make sure no Tubes pins are shorting any elements on the Boattom Board.
Please also use e-mail email@example.com and provide pictures of your assembly for visual inspection.

Please use User Manual to set the GPS.
Please send two pictures of your Assembly: Top and Bottom in good quality.
Send these pictures on our mail firstname.lastname@example.org for Tech Support.
As the forum thread is not really convinient for taht reason.
Regarding your questions, please provide your e-mail address, so we could answer your questions with pictures and diagrams.
This thread does not allows to attach pictures, please write back, we have specifics regarding your requirements, these can be meat in some part.
The only thing that can be used from your requirements is a SSB mofdiffications. In other: generate a 46dBuV EMF Signal (I believe -61dBm) on AM and FM this can be done.
To depict the spectrograms, we can send them on your mail. Please write back.
We will need to llok closely to these criterias.
And chek if it will meet your demands.
We will write back to you soon.

For LED please refer to User Manual, there is a function to fix coloror turn off.
There is no option for fade-like transition effect, you will have to develope it from the scratch.
As for the Antipoisoning feature, please could you write back what exactly you want to make faster: swicthing or duration of dispalying the feature.
As for the Columns as well: what exactly would you want to adjust – the Dots in Columns are blinking simultaniously actually.
Please write back.
Please write back to email@example.com and add pictures of your assembly for checking it for errors.01.04.2020 at 13:41 in reply to: NCS314 v2.2 IN-14 Flickering tubes after a couple of minutes #28069
Please provide few pictures of your Shield assembly from both side,
write at: firstname.lastname@example.org
This will help to troubleshoot.
Please use attached list of instructions to troubleshoot your assembly.
It seems like there is a problems with HV DC-DC converter.
Write back for further help if needed.
Power LED light up,
But Tubes and dots not light.
“180 Volts DC-DC converter do not work”:
– Check voltage at TP4* must be 180V.
– Check the external power supply connections to the Arduino.
– The power supply must be 12 VDC with a current of at least 1A.
– Check the connection between Arduino and Shield NCS314.
– The Shield takes power from Arduino on pin Vin – сheck the voltage at that pin (should be 11.3 – 12 volts).
Input voltage (under load) dropped below 11 volts:
– Check voltage at Test Point TP1* must be 11.3-12.5V
– Check voltage at Test Point TP2* must be 11.3-12.5V
– Try adjusting the voltage with a trimmer R56 (up to 170 – 180 volts)
– Check soldering quality of components: U6 (check the key), R53, R36, R61, R50, R56, R58, Q1, L1, D9. Also check key for U6 and polarity for D9.
It seems like you need to reload the firmware to your Arduino Shield board.
Please use link to our GitHub channel to download the correct firmware:
Also please use reference video for compiling and uploading the firmware to the Clock:
If this will not solve the problem, write back.
Unfortunately the limitations of the processor for this Board (Atmega328P) does not allows to add more functionality such as NTP sync and others.
If you are capable of working with Atmega code, you do you own development and try to widen functionality.
This platform is compatible with Arduino platform and it is opensource.
Feel free to use our code from our GitHub repository.
If there will be any other questions, feel free to ask.
