vision handset repair (piezo button)

Hi,

my handset just died after a dive (the right button does not work anymore).
Did anybody here already do a DIY repair of the Visionīs piezo buttons?
Is it worth the hassle and where can I get spare piezo buttons?


Option 2: Sending it back to APD, does anyone know how much they charge (I know I could ask direct, but now itīs weekend ...)



Cheers,
Scotty

Scotty,

You might want to check Welcome to SCHURTER I wouldn't be surprised to find out that it is made by Schurter. Just a guess, but I hope it helps!

I had the left one go , sent it back to AP they charged me Ģ 50 for the button.
They also found a voltage drop and traced it to the potted wiring in the head !
Cost me another Ģ 550 in total
