Default Control 24 scribble displays flickering? please help

bought a Control 24 on ebay the other day, its in greattt condition was barely used. on the back it shows its a revision G. I have it running on vegas mode and there seems to be 2 displays flickering, the scribble display and 2 displays of 12-13 faders.. is it this revision and up that the PSU were fixed.. Is it even the Power supply??? what would be the next step to fix this? I live in chicago and not sure if Avid repairs em anymore. thanks

If I search this forum for Flickering I get this page.

If I search for Power Supply I get this page.

not even sure if its the power supply, or a reseating of the connectors. I really dont want to risk damaging it further. Are there any techs in chicago or repair shops I would be able to take this.

List of Avid Authorized Repair Centers

All I can suggest is contacting some other studios in your area and see if they have any leads on local repair places or plan a trip to Nashville or Detroit.

Yes, it's quite easy to remove the power supply! Just make sure to label the connections so you know where they go. Had mine apart loads of times trying to fix clicking faders

Or remove the connections one at a time and clean with deoxit and make sure they are all tight etc.
