just took the raido out and apart. bulb was not bad, so i just heated up the contacts with a sodering iron. re assembled and now it works.

hopefully it will last longer than 1 month.

this board is great. THANKS!!

Well 13 days is all it lasted. I will have to disassemble and evaluate. I believe the excess heat from the bulb is remelting the soder and losing the contact.
