I've owned this unit since it first came out, and it's worked fine, until now. It worked fine on the way to work the other morning, but on the way back it did not. The D-mask flips around as it should, but there is no display. The radio plays faintly but you can't change the volume, station, source, etc...
I'm thinking it's finally bit the dust, but has anyone else had a problem like this that was able to rectify it?
Thanks in advance!

Have you tried a different battery? Occasionally a battery can read good but die under load. Also use care when replacing the battery. Many devices today specify in small print to leave the battery out for a minimum time period (anywhere from about 15 sec to 5 min, depending on the model). Also, it is sometimes quite easy to reverse the polarity on some of these devices. If all else fails, contact the manufacturer. It's possible the unit itself is bad.
Sounds like you covered everything electrically. Did you check the belt to see if it is tight enough. It's been a while since I've worked on a 95, if it has an auto belt tensioner. it could be weak, not turning the alternator fast enough under a load. This can happen and the belt not squeak.
It could be a faulty machine, what is your grind setting? Make sure your using the dual wall single cup as a test. Set the grind to around 13 and grind your own beans, don't use supermarket bought beans or preground coffee. Both are garbage. Also if your using the dual wall basket, make sure that you leave the dial guage in the dual wall setting. Then tamp the coffee so it sits roughly 3-5mm below the rim, this is what I have found is best for this unit. Then secure group head in to unit, press single cup and you should hopefully get a pressure reading, if it isn't going up you are under extracting and your grind is prob to coarse (correct me if I'm wrong), I've found 13 is not to coarse not to fine. Shouldn't feel like fine sand, when coarse but not powdery. If the gauge does not move in to the grey area your unit is most likely faulty.
This may sound stupid but try this, for some reason this seem to work on 6 and 9000 units with charging problems.
With the unit running, disconnect the battery and allow the unit to run for 60 seconds, then plug the battery back in, again with the unit running.
