Hi i had a reply off megger any pat4dvf3 on any other firmware other than 1.3 can not be repaired so im stuck with a useless device has anyone had one of these apart and have any pictures and is there anything that could be repaired with a soldering iron and a a bit of general knolage



Email reply from megger

We can only look at version 1.3 PAT4s now the fixed fee cost being £348 plus return carriage plus VAT.
The firmware version appears on the screen when the PAT first boots.
All other versions cannot be repaired.


Thanks

Hi ozzydvf/3

Thanks for the heads up. Many years ago I had the original PAT4 apart to replace the firmware chip, however you cannot upgrade a PAT4 dv1 to a dv3 as there were I believe also board changes.

The components on the boards are surface mount and wouldn't know where to start tracking a fault. Given the repair cost you could argue that it may be easier to purchase a new or second hand replacement?

Regards, Richard.
