    Well, not a week after my control panel came in for my new CG160FXII, my 7 year old FXII160 fails.

    The USB stopped responding and on the RS232 it cuts, but a quarter inch short, ignores the panel settings and won't utilize the compensation settings. As if the encoders are being ignored.

    Yes, I tried a different cable, tried to run it from a different workstation and everything. It only responds off the RS232.

    I get a quote from Mimaki for $2800 as the board is obsolete and there is a new set of boards and ARM kit that must be installed. Basically my cutter is a total loss as they quote me $6000 for a new one.

    Can I get the parts less than the thousands they are quoting? I can install and update the firmware myself.

    Now why didn't I think of that first before coming here?

    I have no idea. But that will get you the (used) part for a lot less $$$$

    There are none available in the US.

    I figured there would be a dealer here with something available.

    Google was the first thing I tried. Found piles of the PCB boards super cheap.
