I am an electrician...have found myself working maintenance in an axle factory. good money, quite varied work. its teaching me hydraulics and robotics too.

surely if you buy a new one to swap your old one for they will only replace it anyway when you take it back? so you will still end up with 2. mine started playing up a few days after owning it for 12 months. oddly i get the 3 red segments if i turn it on with a disk in or with the controller but not...
