My Mudman does the same thing in the eye of the compass/second graph. I never could figure out what the purpose is. Doesn't seem to be any logic there. You're watch is not faulty. Some where there is a reason, only Casio knows. OR is there anybody out there???? That knows?? SPEAK!

d2mac is absolutely right, rest easy OP your watch is functioning as designed. It's just due to the small y-axis range of the barometer trend graph. For pretty much all of these trend graphs, both Gs and ProTreks, the y-axis only covers 8-10 hPa of pressure change (1 pixel = 1 hPa). If the weather changes quickly (or you change elevation quickly) the past pressure trend is beyond the vertical scale limits. Take a three hour drive from the coast to the mountains and you'll see just a single pressure dot in the lower right, signifying the recent pressure values were all much higher than the current pressure. Take a three hour drive from the mountains to the coast and you'll see just a single pressure dot in the upper right, signifying the recent pressure values were all much lower than the current pressure.

the white dots? it's graphic for barometer trend xD
i assume u just got it out of the box. either the reading before out of range as d2mac said or maybe because it was in PS mode? i can'r recall if the sensor still active or not during PS's hibernate. maybe other members can chime in.
Anyway, nice Rangeman, enjoy it :D

On most G-Shocks, you can initiate a display test by pressing the Bottom Left, Bottom Right & Top Left buttons simultaneously. Pressing the Bottom Right button will scroll through the various display test screens then escape.

I don't have a Rangeman, but this works on all of my digital G-Shocks.

BTW, based on what I see, I don't think there is anything wrong with the display on your Rangeman, as others in this thread have indicated.

If you are talking about the 5 and 4 dots in the barometer, its a barometer reading !!

Sometimes only a few dots appear sometimes a whole lot more depending on where you are located.

cheers

Yours is a different model to mine however there is a display test you can do. All I would suggest is you send it back to Casio. My display function fail only happened in the temperature mode. Thy display worked in all other modes

Push the upper left button to get the date back if you don't want to read the manual and learn what you're seeing.
