    Has anyone found a Chinese supply for the dreded compass, Temp burned module? I'm wondering if there is a supplyer for the circut board. Most of us could replace that quite easily.

    My board is toast and the only option is one from a wrecked Taco or new...seems this should be easier and cheaper solution.

    Okay, so. You need a board repaired? Hytec might do it.

    Good advice. If you can find any circuit board repair business, then they can probably fix it.

    Easy fix. Two 47 ohm 1/2 watt resistors.

    Hey everybody. Sorry I didn’t make myself clear. My circuit board is unfixable. The repair people can’t fix it because (I’m assuming) some components are unfixable. The board needs replacing.
    There are burned areas where the previous owner must have attempted to fix it himself and ruined the board.

    Thanks again

    Ez fix solder resistors. Bunch of YouTube videos problem is resistors get very hot and melt off. Dead board id wouldn't spend the $$$ since all that info can get from smart phone.

    Nice work. Let's see if that nicely soldered board holds up to the hack job I did a few yrs ago. Still going strong..oh yeah buddy:

    Has anyone found a cheaper solution than this? I have repaired mine 3 different times and the resistor keeps popping off after just a few months. It is not enough of an inconvenience to spend over $100 to fix but it would be nice to have.

    I just got some new solder so I will have to see if it works any better. I have also been trying to keep the solder "clean" looking, but maybe I just need to pile it on there and make sure it can't melt and move again haha.

    Rust, dents, miles, extra metal.
    What resistor are you putting on there? You never want it it to get hot enough to melt the solder, which is why going with one of those 1/2 watt beasts up above helps.

    And what kind of solder do you have? Any decent rosin core solder ought to work.
