Spent hours replacing and removing bits. Then just failed to start. When I did get a reply they claimed they’d never heard of this type of fault and went on to suggest memory as the problem, and the usual pull all the cards and see what happens. If they get enough they might just decided it’d be cheaper to build the product better in the first place. I’d already tried all this and much more well before the reply but the board stays dead.
