Default SkyView Gremlins

It started with the EGT #1 display starting up with a red X showing. Somewhere between startup and takeoff EGT#1 would finally come alive , and indicate temps consistent with the other EGTs. I replaced EGT#1 sensor with no change in the red X behavior.

This week my ammeter display started up a red X. Talked to Dynon again, same answer, corroded connection. I replaced both the shunt connections up to the harness junction with no change in the red X.

Batt voltage and Alt voltage are reading normally.

The Skyview has preformed flawlessly for the last two years, or so, since first flight. Till now......

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. I am at KMMV near McMinnville, OR if anyone is near.
