KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

In those 17 seconds does it heat at all ?

Customer:

no

KevinWhiteJA :

Ok, do you hear any different sounds from the unit ?

Customer:

no

KevinWhiteJA :

As it works for 17 seconds so it means the fuse and main power board is fine

KevinWhiteJA :

the problem is with the High Voltage capacitor or the HV Diode

KevinWhiteJA :

as there's high voltage inside the unit even when turned off so we don't recommend doing the repair yourself

Customer:

OK have tried different power point just in case. Same result.

KevinWhiteJA :

looking at the age of the unit it is better to buy a new one as cost of repair will be around £170 including parts

Customer:

Many thanks Kevin. Thought age would be the problem (the unit not me!!). Your help much appreciated.

KevinWhiteJA :

:) You're welcome....Excellent feedback is appreciated if you are satisfied with my assistance....Have a Good Evening
