Guessing the part is either a mic or caliper (do you really expect people to recognise the part number?)  , Then typical fauls are  water/coolant  ingresor, fine  metal particles  getting between capacitive sensors. Calipers can get scratches on the underside of the pcb - if any copper is visible you may have to paint with a thin layer of varnish

Remove battery, strip apart so you can clean it out.  Use a plastic save solvent like iso propanol to wash out any obvious contamination.

Calibration is not normally effected.

Sorry Bill
I am an old man that forgets things ( thatís my excuse and Iím sticking to it ) it is a digital micrometer, I found a video on YouTube did what he suggested and seems to be working fine now , he suggested it could have been dropped but I hadnít dropped or banged it .
His solution was take it apart loosen the two screws one on anvil end and one on other end and if you hear a click then that was the problem and I had the click, put it back together and only time will tell.
Thanks Dell

Getting the E-05 error code on the Mitutoyo LINK REMOVED  is probally because you are working with coolant or liquid and some may of got through the seal.

Best thing to do is whip down the screen and replace the battery. it will fix it.
