Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I need to ask for a bit more data clarification, please:

1. Was the Zimo recently repaired?

2. The brown background is abnormal. Do all functions, e.g. touch-screen, GPS location/satellite lock, work?
