Do you have small digital multimeter so we can do some testing? About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use. I can supply a manual and guide you in some tests to get to the root of the problem. I am understanding that the display won't come on the optical?

Were the part numbers of the new optical and board the same as the ones you took off?
