Whatever it is, it is something common to all the sensors. I would try to contact the manufacturer as suggested.
At first this device worked very well, for about 4-5 months it worked well, then it started to have problems, sometimes it could see the sensors, sometimes it couldn't. a few days ago when I turned it on again, it could see the axial and radial sensors, but not the hub sensor, and if it doesn't see the hub sensor, it's as if it doesn't see the wheel as if it were on the device. If anyone is interested, this device is for sale, because I haven't been able to use it for a long time, and I'm tired of looking for solutions to repair it. the price is 2300 euros. thanks

Yes, this was something I could use to build better wheels than he did, and I used it for 45 years.

There are some things in this world that simply do not need to be high tech.
Truing stands fit that category in my opinion.

Did you try disconnecting the battery and waiting a bit?

It does not have batteries, it is powered by the socket.

What specifically was the manufacturer’s reply? They do still sell these, or at least claim to, so manuals should be available.

50% off sounds like a high asking price for a machine that doesn’t work.

I've never bought that cheap of a rim either, but I bought a CHEAP Wheelmaster front wheel that had such variation.(it included a new rim BTW)
At the time, a $35 wheel for a flip bike made much more sense then building a new wheel.
