The display kept flickering and then the whole appliance went dead
The display started to flicker and eventually went very dim. It was possible to operate the radio for a while by trial and error but eventually the radio went completely dead and has shown no sign of life. This was some years ago. I suspect a significant chip inside has blown but Pure only offer to replace it with another product at a reduced price. Unfortunately, they do not produce a direct equivalent and their new stuff looks to have drastically inferior build quality.
