Hi my name is ***** ***** be glad to try to help. Grey market does pose an issue. So many people get into this grey market problem to save money up front but sometimes get stuck in a mess when the machine goes down or needs parts/service. Dr ZX diagnostic tool can be purchased and should read world wide. There is a palm version or laptop version that can be purchased off the web. I recommend purchasing this since you have two of these machines. click this link for one option

DR ZX

The problem is since not the US version software, Only dealers in the country of origin have the capabilities to reflash or reprogram any software issues or updates. This is where you will run into problems.
