and here is what i really appreciated about redcap, he was able to contact the company and get a replacement PCB shiped to me for free.
it arrived like 3 days later.
I must say I'm super jealous for you right now. I had similiar problem over two months ago. I got a unit with bad PCB and it fried after a two minutes use. I tried get me a new PCB, but seller told me:
"Dear Valued Customer.
Inform sorry for the bad news.
monitor was on the phone with manufacturers.
The manufacturer's own purchasing regulations, the logic board can not buy
Sorry, but find another way.
Deliver bad news, I'm sorry.
I guess what he told me was complete bulls**t, or that was truly the case at the time. I have the monitor sitting and waiting for a possible PCB, but over the time I have given up looking for one.
Now, if you could tell who was your seller, either here or PM to me, I could ask him directly for it and costs etc.
