    Hello,
    We have had a slight mishap with our heat press. To cut a long story short one of the dampers on the heat plate has worn causing the press handle to release at great speed hitting a metal casing which in turn touched the control board causing the heat press to blow a 13a fuse. Replaced fuse but no display on lcd/control panel. We have checked fuses and reset/checked internal fuse and all ok. The board as you can imagine is damaged where metal casing touched board. (circled in red) Arghhhh just caught it by millimetres! As you can see signs of heat, but other side seems (to the eye) to be ok (bottom picture).
    Surprise, surprise the unit is of course out of warranty. The original suppliers want us to send unit to them for them to look at/repair. The shipping alone (weighs over 50kg) will cost an arm and a leg for us! I have tracked down the supplier company in China who do supply the boards separately but I am currently awaiting a response of cost and time of delivery.
    I was wondering if any members could advise if this board is repairable and if so by someone here in the UK? Time really is not on our side as we have orders to complete so do not really want to wait for the part to come from china if at all possible.
    Oh, the damper that caused this is a few quid and easily available...........sods law eh!

    Thanks Paul, it's really hard to see anything being that the PCB is black. If you have a multi meter you could see if you have a connection from the live tab to the fuse, and also check the 1.25 A fuse that protects the PCB. Other than that U think you are going to need someone to look at it in the flesh. Where are you in the UK?
    Adam

    Edit: Sorry you already checked the fuses
