oops.


I had luck with the flat Iron technique, but it still failed eventually. I sent mine out to BBA re manufacturing. Cost me like 120 bucks, but it is still going strong.

I recommend Demi, over all others, but jssaab is probably the only person who knows who I'm talking about.

BBA reman also does a great job and provides a lifetime warranty. They send you a reman when you purchase and then you send yours back. If it ever starts to fail you send it back after calling them and you get another one back.

If you watch eBay, you might get lucky.
I found a 5 button 900 SID for $70, 100% & still going.

The ironing method worked perfectly on the first try on my SID 3. Got all pixels back. It's been a few months so far and 100% of the pixels are still working.

i was talking to my local Saab tech and he was telling me that the reason that the pixels start going out is when they get really cold in the winter then when it starts getting warmer outside they start to disappear, and of course it goes south from there. and i do believe this because not to long ago we had a warm day after all the freezing weather i noticed one strip of pixels missing but then they showed up again. and ever since they show up and disappear and i'm afraid when the weather stays nice there will be more missing...then i'll bust out the iron.

Mine too started missing one column of SID pixels and some ACC pixel. I began this winter/spring when the temperature range got from freezing during nights to warm during days.
Still no need to disassemble it.
Has anybody information how they repair it ? I got a guy repairing industrial electronics, who will micro solder it if I get him a compatible SMD ribbon connector.
