Hi, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.Initially, have you checked the bottom for screws?
There are locking tabs.
Would a diagram serve your need please?
Please click HERE.
Yes, remove the screw.
A jeweler's screwdriver would be need to push the locking tabs (slightly sideways) to unlatch. It would help if another screwdriver is used to keep pried apart the top cover and bottom half thus preventing the unlocked tabs from locking back in.
Yes there are; a fuse immediately along pin 1 of connector CNDC1 labeled as F1. There is another fuse labeled as ICP1.
I understand; tomorrow or when able.
Hi again Ken,
Please refer to the above linked exploded diagram.
The fuses are in the circuit board marked as 3 / middle board shown in FIGURE 4 CONTROL BOARD & LOWER COVER.
To serve as common reference, please post back with clear picture of the board.
ICP1 is the fuse for the regulator IC14.
These are not readily visible from the pictures.
To test, set the multi-meter to continuity / Ω function. A good fuse would read 0.0Ω out-of-circuit.
Yes, preferably de-soldered.
The fuses can still be checked while still in circuit as it would still read 0.0Ω if good.
Availability; sourcing should not be that difficult.
Do you still need help with this?
