Hiya all, I'm hoping that someone here has dissembled one before, so here goes ....... It seems that the "touchpad" on the front of the machine (right group) has stopped responding, no clicks when blister-buttons are pushed, no whirring of pump - in short, it's dead. It did go through one day of firing, then not firing, and now it's stopped. I have looked one up and they cost about as much as Botswana, so before ordering a new unit (£380.00), I'd like to be sure that the switching in it has gone, and it's not a £3.00 wiring problem. My idea is to switch the touchpad the left hand side, and if it works, I can be sure it's just a problem,with the wiring on the right. In order to do this, I have to remove the "electronic box/ touchpad", but it doesn't seem to budge - it clearly comes out forwards (to the front). Do I have to remove the plastic box cover over the circuitry ? If so how ? I don't just want to try and pry it out cause they are bloody expensive !!! Also, would a jammed flowmeter stop the switching of the touchpad ? Really end any help you can offer - thanks in advance. :shock:
