yep,as mavroz said,mpu is shagged.i cant remember if it was mentioned,if its epoch,no chance of repair.and boards are rare unless you spend 50 quid or so from stemik etc.you will spend more than machine is worth but it gets to a stage where it feking has to work so at least you can enjoy it

I have repaired a few Epoch mpu's now. They take time, patience and the right equipment to fix them.

 

The tracks are very small, very fine and there are lots of through holes. One of the biggest failings i have found is the battery leakage destroys the U1 Ic for some reason....

 

Good luck, i fear you will need it...

Should be able to, make sure they go in the right way around.

 

Until the mpu boots up, you have no way of telling if the other boards are ok.....
