Lloyd et al,

I'd like to offer to buy your non-functioning unit (and this goes for 
everyone who got screwed over by this guy) on the off chance I may be 
able to repair it for myself. I've got the skills and equipment to make 
that happen. I bought one but it mysteriously "disappeared" in the mail. 
I did get a refund, but only after some hassle from the seller.

Contact me directly off list if you are interested. I am located in the US.

Alex Perez

At one point, I asked folks here to inspect pictures of the circuit board and several list members concurred that the soldering was sloppy and the likely cause of the problem.
