AMS RMX 16 problems... Anybody servicing AMS gear?

hello everybody,

I have an ams rmx 16 that doesn't work as it is supposed to...
for example when turning it on 4 out of 5 times it isn't possible to change program values an things like that.
anybody else experienced problems like this?
the best thing would be that someone, who really knows these units, takes care of it.

when browsing gearslutz I found

- David Kulka's Studioelectronics page (http://www.studioelectronics.biz) (seems to be the perfect guy for this job, but...he's located in the U.S.) and

- Howard Jones (Kaya Music Systems Ltd.) was mentioned a couple times.

does anybody know somebody capable of doing a good/perfect job repairing my little baby? maybe someone in goodold Europe?

thanks in advance

Do not let Howard Jones repair the unit. tutt
He is not an honest guy. AMS-Neve stopped recommanding him after many complaints.

As I said in a previous message , Howard fixed my ams collection several times but havent been able to get hold of him for a year. not sure what's happening.
I'm on the lookout too for a UK based AMS service person.

But always worth with the RMX taking off the top the removing and reseating every card in their slots. This has worked for me before and is always the first thing to try if you havent already. Check the contacts as well on the boards, see if they are overly dirty or corroded.

I remembered a guy i sold my 15-80 to 2 years ago who almost got ripped the unit off by this Howard, i think he got it back a year or more after but he needed to gather with people in the same boat and threaten to sue him...A weird story!
