Customer Question

I have a model WD 822K about 10 years old which has been acting strangely. The physical operation work fine, but more and more frequently it will fail to activate. The light goes out on the wall switch. I have unplugged the unit, waited a few seconds, replugged it in and gave the power head a smack on the side. That seems to work, but not all the time. The photo eyes are aligned OK and I see no loose wires. Could the motherboard be going bad? Looking for answers.
