If you can email me the photo, I can look at mine. I finally got my
USB-001 working by buying another 2100; it turned out that the socket
on the logic board of my original 2100 was damaged.
Anyway, I'm also about to leave on a trip next Monday, July 18th, so
the sooner you can send it the better. I'll be back in town on August

To me, it looks like the left-most pin along the bottom is bent at an angle and not connected. I'd appreciate it if someone with a working USB-001 could take a look at the photo and compare with their board.
