Equipment Notes:

This unit powers up but it does not show a display.  It is giving me two error codes.

12 = warning of decrease of panel high voltage (Va)
22 = warning of decrease of panel middle voltage (Va)

I have no idea how to deal with this and I can't find anyone in my area that can.  If you can fix this - your smarter then me...... You should buy it.

The Monitor has been well cared for.  Clean, smoke free environment from the day I got it.  Never dropped or damaged in any way.


This item is sold as is.
