the recorder is approx is about 2 years old. I was hoping I could get an answer to the problem. I wasn't looking for a repair. My zip is 35115
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
If it is that comupated forget it

Yes you can carry out the repair yourself, if you have the appropriate test and repair equipment.

Do you have a multimeter and soldering iron available, along with other electronic testing tools and spare components?

i JUST WANTED AN ANSWER TO MY PROBLEM. Is this possible.

Yes, this fault is likely caused by a faulty component inside the recorder box.

You will need to test the internal circuit board to locate the faulty component and then replace it.

This type of repair requires advanced electronic and mechanical knowledge.
