Fair enough - if you have a unit with known issues, you have to suspect
But funky connectors and old wires can cause lots of grief - and aren't
fixed by replacing other stuff.
Except, when you wiggle the wires replacing the other stuff, the wire
might act ok for a while - making you think that the replaced item was
really the problem.
Most of us have been down that road - it keeps things interesting.
