I'm sure you have qualified techs closer to home, but for what it's
worth, Strauss Photo Technical Services here in Washington is a factory
authorized service center for just about every brand of photo, video,
audio and office electronics. I've never met anybody who has used them
who doesn't love them. (I'm sure someone on this list will be the
first.) I was just there today picking up my digital camera that had
gotten wet. They turned the camera around in less than a week, and it
seems to work very well now. Total bill $150. I wouldn't bother
e-mailing them, just call 'em.
All the best,
P.S. Thanks for the off-line info on SoundForge!
