Take it apart an on the rear of the display you will see capacitors. You will probably see an end cap that is domed. Just replace them all.

There are 4 blue relays in the unit that has solder points that will crack over time.
It´s fairly "easy" to re-solder them and viola, it´s OK again.

open the cover (unscrew and take of the hood) and locate the 4 blue relays.0cddb82.jpg Unscrew and remove the bottom service plate and locate the soldering points for the 4 relays.c0f1d35.jpg
Each relay has 6 solderings, 4 in one "groop" and 2 in one "groop" look especially at the "2-groop" these are the ones most likely to crack over time ( for me 12 years or so).3436d08.jpge6f7344.jpg
Re- solder. Best of luck //Ronnie Stockholm

Try this and let me know. First unplug the unit. Plug it back in. When you first push the power button, you should hear 1 click followed by another withing 5-20 seconds. My guess is that you don't hear the second click. Am I right?

You have this backwards. Applicable code(s) will be found in the remote control, if it is compatible.
