Sounds exactly like my eMate, the one my cat peed on. She is fine, by the
way. I bought myself a nice soldering iron but have not been brave enough
to try it. Maybe tonight, while the Olympics are on. I'll be looking for
something damaged by moisture, like a capacitor.

Hopefully we can get these two back in service.
