Hi,

Not really Merc Related, but there migfht be a clever cookiie on here that can help.

The remote control unit for my boat-handler forklift has decided to stop working. Supplier in America wants $3,00+ for a new one :(

It's made here in the UK but the manufacturer can't/won't sell me one as it's a "proprietory brand" product.

It looks very similar to the units I see controlling hydraulic ramps etc in workshops.

So, anyone any suggestions as to who might be able to test/fix it?

Regards

Steve

At the bottom of the picture it looks like there are 2 circuit boards, a blue one on top of the green one.
The bottom corner of the blue board has brown stains, maybe some water has got into it at some point?

I'd take the batteries out and put it somewhere warm and dry for a couple of days.
The contacts look good on the battery connectors but worth giving them a clean with switch cleaner on a cotton bud.
Be sure not to knock any of the DIP switches to a different position whilst it's open, if you do at least you have the photo for reference.

Does the supplier only do new ones, no refurbs or repair to your unit?
