FEEDBACK ON THIS REPAIR:October 10, 2006Duane,I completed the repair this weekend. It took about one hour and all went very well, excellent instructions. The most difficult part was separating the little white tabs on the module. It just takes a little time and patients. I used a 15 watt soldering iron which worked perfect. Once reconnected the digital readout was working as new.
I now have the answer and repaired the unit tis morning. This may help you in future reference: Just behind the LCD panel there are 2 flat rectangle resistors. These two resistors are apparently known for "popping off" the board. The numbers on mine were 620 & 640. The solders were broken loose causing intermittent power. I just used a 15 watt soldering iron and reattached. Works perfectly.
Maybe someone else will need the info. Heck i should become an expert???
