Hey all. This my first post! After perusing a number of threads on similar topics, I decided to take a shot and post my own.
I have a Pentair Easy Touch remote control, with 4 channels. It is approximately 6 years old. When pressing the Menu Power On button, the power doesn't come on. Or it does sometimes, but only in flashes. It's getting more and more difficult to make it work. I have replaced the batteries, to no avail. It's probably a connection under the button that has come loose somehow.
My questions are:
1) Can it be repaired? An electronics technician I spoke to advised against it, as there is no access to the interior.
2) If replaced, should I buy a new receiver as well? I can find images of what looks like the exact same remote control model, except mine is not "2A". (see attached)
I'm willing to hold out for a while to search for other solutions, as replacement cost is absurd starting at $225 for the remote only, and going up to $500+ for remote and receiver combo.
