I just had mine repaired from a guy from EBAY. For $30 he will re-soldier the diode back on the circuit board. works perfect

If u have a soldering iron u can do it yourself too! Pretty easy to do, hardest part is to pull it out, which still is just pulling it down.

I'm so glad some one posted this. Mine was not working and I hadn't even noticed. I've only had it a couple weeks now and have put most of my attention under it rather than inside.

So I took care of it today and this is what happened.


One of the 680's came off as soon as i touched it and the one right next to it was only attached at one end. Irritating little buggers to re-solder back in place. I would have preferred to use conductive glue but I could not find it until after I was done.

The repair works!!


Plugged it back into the harness to check things out and got happy green numbers. I also got a good idea as to what causes this to happen in the first place. While I was holding like this, I pushed the buttons to make sure everything was in order before putting it back together and the circuit board directly behind these resistors got hot. Heat was enough I couldn't hold it with my finger on that spot anymore. Pretty sure these go directly to the display since as long as the display was off, no heat.

I'm hoping someone around here is an electronics wiz and can suggest an alternative component or solution for a better fix.
