No this is not an easy fix, that is a big job and the parts to fix it are expensive, I would suggest buying a new unit due to the cost to repair. Sorry for the bad news:(

All I ask is please select the ***5 STAR RATING*** using the link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.
