Hi, Im sorry to hear that. This is caused by a bad electrolytic capacitor on the power supply section of this unit.

The part you need is about 1 dollar, but it requires testing to determine the exact one that is causing this failure.

Any electronics tech can find this bad cap and replace it for you locally;-)
