Re: sp 202 issues


Ever consider the notion that you may have a failure with your unit? It
is possible that the reliability issue is a bad solder connection or
failed piece of circuitry. I've been repairing gear for a few decades
now and have seen about every possible failure. The majority seem to be
a function of a failed solder connection. Be it the connection itself or
the component further down the path. Just my two cents...

Be Well
