Yeah, I know, and I felt stupid about sending the dead one back for
someone else to repair and send to some other SX engine user. But I
was (and am) up to my fundament in other alligators, I needed for the
printer to work soonish, and while I can solder, I understand analog
electronics something like you understand C, only less well. If I'd
left it for me to do it still wouldn't be done, and so changing it to
a "depot repair" sort of problem worked really well for me.
