Hello to all,
I have owned a Vs2480 CD for 12 years with no issues at all. I recently walked into a pawnshop here in melbourne fl and saw a vs2480 HD so i figured why not since the price was only $150. WHAT DO I HAVE TO LOSE? I figured " I got this". The salesman told me what was wrong. I have spent 9 hrs trying the following: changed on board batt, reformat drive using my other machine, took the machine apart to clean it except the section by the internal screen. so far it is still apart but still no luck getting all the buttons to work. the machine works fine using the external vga but I need the buttons to work so I can update the firmware version(2.0) to the latest (2.505). I did find a connection by the screen that was disconnected and I thought that's got to be it. NO. Definitely, someone was inside the machine before. Should I keep digging or just don't bother? I hate giving up on such a fine peace of equipment. Any help is appreciated.
