Hi again, the light is blue and there are 8 blinks per cycle.

Expert:  info tech replied 2 years ago.
You have a problem with the set thats a problem usually a digital board issuebut could be powerboard investigations with a meter to determine what board is bad and then an assessment to see if the board can be repaired to component level or replaced is done, now I can help you with that should you be practical can use small tools a meter and soldering iron?
These sets now are scarce so if parts are available they will be expensive, you have to consider repair against replacement.

Let me know your thoughts here

In answer to your question I have no metre but I am quite capable with tools side of things. Thank you for your service. I will try and source a metre from my cousins son.

Tank you for now I will be in touch.

Expert:  info tech replied 2 years ago.
OK let me know thank you please also be aware because of the scarce of the boards it may be necessary to repair the board so a soldering iron will be needed to
