Hi Richard,

Dismantled ok but found fuse to also be ok the rest of the unit looks as though requires Panasonic testing equipment not that qualified suggest I think I just reassemble and decide what to do !! But thanks anyway.

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, its going to be a module on the mainboard thats the issue, and yes you need specific equipment to check this Gerry.
Honetly, based on my experience when all is said and done, it is more cost effective to purchase a replacement, rather then send it in for a diagnostics, and then the repair.
Plus the repair only covers a short warranty (usually 3 months but depends on the part as it can be shorter).
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
