Have there been any significant manufacturing changes to the BCD436HP from 2017 till now? I know the early models had some issues.

I believe 3 is correct. I sent in an older unit for the clock repair and it came back with a different display. BCD436 that is.

Newer production units should have these already addressed:
  1. Installation of the C1 capacitor to fix noise issue.
  2. Real Time Clock fix.
  3. Display fix? (I might be thinking of the BCD536HP)
The 'display fix' applied to the early production units of both the 436HP & 536HP. My second 436HP, purchased late in 2016, did not have any of those issues, and still does not.

The only display issues that I've seen posted since the repair campaign was started (other than the older ones that had not yet been sent in for the repair) is the rare, but occasional, failure on a single scanner, not 'almost all' as was the case for the early production scanners.
