    Hi Guys

    I recieved a marino bianco 300 unit from a friend.

    The unit had a lof of moisture build up and does not work.

    What would the first component(s) be to check?

    I want to see whether it is worth while fixing it up.

    thanks

    That's going to be really difficult I think, unlike older light units that were a simple ballast and then the light, LED's have so many more electronic components. Have you stripped the unit yet? You can replace the LED boards, but I think it'll still be a long shot.

    I am going to strip the unit today. Just kind of wanted to get an idea of what to look for

    Hi Henkie

    We sell the Illumilux and they are actually very simple LED units.

    Check the power plug going into the unit to see if its making a good connection also check the first power interface board on the unit itself to see if its damaged.

    If its any of these items its easy to fix and affordable.

    if its the power supply or LED board it gets expensive.

    We would happily look at the unit for you if you send it down to us:)

    I opened the unit and I am pretty sure the leds is blown...

    So what is the replacement cost? Might as well find out:)
