Thank you :)


hi again but it doesn't make any difference I mean still flashing red


Wow, you already replaced the MOSFETs and did a reflow of the CPU, HANA chip?

Please check again if this is the correct solution for your problem depending on the number of red lights blinking and the error code.

Maybe some else here has an alternative solution?
