    Do you know what's wrong with it? What does it do(or not do)?

    Mine failed, but it was one of the sub-miniature switches inside that had broken. I found a source of replacement switches. I'll be ordering some this week. If it's the switch in yours, i can hook you up with the part#. Then all you need to do is solder them onto the pc board.

    I ended up getting a new pc board, from jthomas for mine, but there was a guy advertising for you to send in the board, and he might be able to fix it. $60.00 I believe
