The set is 3 yrs. old
Never had any service
The green on light blinks for a while - screen still blank, then changes to red -- stays red and another red light starts flashing - so there are no pauses or repeats
Have no experience whatsoever - neither family nor friends
no meter or tools
not trying to repair myself.
