It's a very common problem which seems to eventually affect all A1's and A2's eventually. My sixth one failed yesterday.

The fault is a tiny crack on an internal flexible circuit board, the bad news is that there is no easy or lasting fix.

The best you can do is to undo the two small screws underneath the viewfinder and remove the lower cover. You'll see the flexible pcb immediately and the break occurs in one or both outermost electrical tracks below the blue or yellow tape in the lower r.h. corner. If you turn the camera on and gently manipulate the pcb you can often get it to work again, but to prevent it reoccurring too quickly you'll need to fix the viewfinder in the lowered position permanently. Unfortunately, a knock can just as easily stop it from working again and the damage does eventually progress to other electrical tracks.

The only proper fix is to replace the pcb, but it's no longer available and you have to dismantle the camera completely to do so and it's not an easy job. If you can find an old stock replacement pcb then you'll see that KM never resolved the issue: it's exactly the same as the old one and will fail in time. I found this out the hard and expensive way.

    Do you mean the eyepiece or the flip-out display?

When in video recording mode LCD screen and viewfinder are black when the lens cap is off.

It could one of a few problems:

1. The viewfinder is pulled out and "PRIORITY" is set to "FINDER".

Push the viewfinder back in or set "PRIORITY" to "LCD".

2. The LCD monitor's brightness setting is too dark.

Adjust the brightness of the LCD monitor.

3. If the monitor is tilted upward 180 degrees, open the monitor fully.

I have a 1/16" tilt

Your question is not very clear. Here are several answers.
By tilt you may be speaking of bevel adjustment 0 - 45 Some saws have hidden under the table or obvious positive bevel stops or screws in the table top for 90 and 45 degree. Adjust them.
You may have a bent or warped blade causing the "tilt."
Thin blades may be stiffened with blade stabilizing washers $14
With the saw unplugged remove the blade. Grab the threaded arbor shaft and pull it up and down. Next push the shaft straight in and out. If there is wiggle the bearings are worn and may need replacing.

Pump contiues running as soon as you switch on carrys on running with door open and after re set not filling timer working

Yes tipping the unit on its back at 45 angle for a few minutes worked. However, when the dishwasher was pushed back under the surface the problem re occured. We solved this by altering the feet at the back so that it was just slightly lower at the back and it works fine again. Excellent advice on this page. Has definately saved us a call out fee.

"Milky" Viewfinder

After a quick look at the manual you can find in the setup menu 3 "reset defaults" which shoud set you camera back to its first settings.
