The power supply unit under the controller boards can be a problem too. The boards pull power from that and because of lack of ventilation, they go bad periodically. You can check and make sure the voltages are OK using a simple multimeter. Each power supply unit has the voltage designated on the wires.
The power supply is not cheap either but should be readily available...
Hope this helps... Good luck...

> I was implying the reverse, Horst. Given that you have already written off the DRC board, see if it shows up in the Spy software in the 6000. It might damage the DRC board, but you're no worse off.
> If it does show up, then the problem could be with the DRC back pane. Of course that's possibly worse than trying to get a new system controller board.
thanks for the suggestion :)
I'll ask Perkin Elmer what they think of it.
