    "i before e, except after c"

    anyways...

    It would depend on what the problem actually is. It may be that the port has a dry solder joint on the PCB. If that's the case then it is a simple fix. If it's more serious (like a blown IC), then I don't fancy your chances...

    The former would be evidenced by the picture coming and going when you move the A/V cable around.

    Well thanks for putting me straight, Akuma. There I was, blundering through life thinking that saying was only "i before e, except after c"...but I have seen the light! Praise the Lord! :biggrin:

    My life will have new meaning, thanks to you.
