      I second that. I have two different 5150’s from two different sources and both seem to have the same issue, which I’ll have to troubleshoot at some point.

      This is not a bust on you, but you might want to save your declaration for
      "works perfectly" until you get everything hooked up and running...these
      machines can take work if they have been sitting for a while. You should
      have fun though, they're very supportable.
