Hey Tracy - so sorry.. I was totally out of it not realizing this was big holiday week... family celebrations of Seder and Easter.... plus the weather sucked.

I read the referred to fixes in the other forums and it was strange what people said. For me it looks like a bad contact in the connector as you say. I wrote my experience above (2015) and I must say that came to the previous state that…"
