Well, the conv. IC's did the trick. She is up and running once again. And it was a lot cheaper than going out and buying a new one!!
One thing I did notice while in there was the dust on everything. Can anyone tell me if there are good, competent instructions on the forum here as far as how this task needs to accomplished. I would like to do it the right way.
Thanks for your help in getting her back up and running. My wife sure was happy!!
