I'm glad it helped someone.

I'll probably open up the newer one, maybe this weekend, and try to see what the differences are. I'm particularly interested in whether it has the same goofy battery connection and whether the same or different chips are socketed.

My guess as to my initial problem is that the display/button board connection got jostled when I pulled the unit out of the rack, probably because the front panel didn't quite slide out cleanly past the units mounted next to it. The second problem, as I say, was operator error.

And yeah, they're an odd little company.

I've already jumped a spark on that power connector a couple times. Fortunately, it didn't fry anything. But I'm not sure I want to try and replace the connector, either.
