Sony PVW-2600 Flashing lights on control panel

Sony PVW-2600 lights on control panel flash upon powering up. It looks like the control panel took a really bad hit from the front coner/side. Once we got the elevator to work it seems to play ok - if the flashing lights don't bother you. I know there is something wrong but I can't remember what it is. Thanks

If this control panel has the hard brown plastic LED holders, that could be the problem. They can absorb moisture from the atmosphere, corrode the LED leads, and deposit a conductive goop (that's a technical term) on the PCB, screwing up the lamp logic. Replace all the holders- Sony only sells a new, improved version- and any LEDs with corroded leads. Clean the PCB thoroughly with alcohol to get rid of all the goop, and you should be fine.

PVW 2800 hour meter readings?

The reason you can't read the head hour meter, it's because the lithium battery only has a lifetime of 5 years so it's dead and you need to replace it!

The power won't turn on at all, is there a fuse? when I plug it in, no lights or anything show. up.

There is not a serviceable fuse as such. Try another power cord.
If that does not work...It is either a problem in the power supply or the fuse on the main connector PC board Good Luck
