I bought it in 2012. Never used in adverse conditions . I tried the troubleshooting solution in the manual...no go.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
First symptom was a year and a half ago. The right side of the screen turned upside-down and blurry. Turning the unit off then back on sometimes worked.

Sorry for all the questions but there are a lot of units out there that who's model # ***** that way and I needed to be sure of what you actually have.
This unit needs a new main board.
The symptoms you describe are indicative of that being the problem. If you have extensive electronic troubleshooting experience and can read schematics you can replace the bad parts after I help you test the board.
Let me know on that.
If not you can replace the board if you can solder electronics I will assist there as well.
If not you would need to have this fixed by a local music instrument repair shop.
I will help you any way you choose to go. And I can tell you this much, the instrument is definitely worth the cost of the repair for sure.
I will stick with you in case you need me further, you can reach me after rating at no additional cost .
please be sure to rate my answer kindly at this time before closing this page.
It won't cost you anything additional to rate and I will be with you at no additional cost and you can always get in touch with me if you need further help;-)
Thank you and have a great weekend!
Tech Michael
