Anyone had this happen to an IMAX B6 clone...? (See below) Is it recoverable or is it terminal...? and, Yes, I know they are not expensive to replace but I am interested to see if it has happened to anyone before..
It happened sometime during the charging of a 9.6v 3300mAh Ni-Mh race style pack which was being charged at 1C.
Tried disconnecting for a while (pack nor charger were warm) but no change.

My son had a similar fault on a charger (can't remember the brand) from new, bought from Giant Cod some years ago. No amount of button pushing would fix it, so they exchanged it.

It would need a thorough check to find the fault Robert, really not worth it
But if it helps
The LCD has multiple connectors to form the data you read on the screen
Now, one or more of these is disconnected
And the component supplying that data is possibly fried too
If you open up the unit, you will most likely see a burnt out cable
Replacing this alone would not repair the black box component that must have overheated
The main fault with a clone is the thinner wiring inside and out and at lower amps these units can last a long time
But when the amps goes up the wiring is the weak point
