Title: Cold solder joints - beware
Post by: goodfodder on July 10, 2020, 12:16:58 am
Sadly my 9month old rg350 has suffered from a cold solder joint failure with the power button. Living in Switzerland the cost of return is too high to warrant; thus decided to fix it myself which given the size of the micro switch was not an easy task.
In case it helps others my suggestion would be; if you decide to take the unit apart (and invalidate your warranty) to reinforce those pesky vertical microswitches with a dab of hot glue as they are a weak point.
