    It started a few months ago, where pressing a scene button would do nothing, but a second press would work, but has slowly progressed. Now all scenes no longer work at all. We don't use the C-Touch screen directly much, but on testing it now, it can see the current state of a group address, but it can't change the state. E.g. A button showing 100%, if pressed will momentarily change to off, do nothing, then return to the on state. Which indicates to me it can still see the C-Bus network. And I was able to reload the Project as a test that it was still on my local Network. There have been no coding changes for years, nor network/device changes. It's been stable since install in 2006. Is this likely to be a wiring issue, internal to the C-Touch, or something else? Thanks, Glenn.

    Hi Glen,
    If you are using a colour touch screen CTC1 or CTC2 then it has a transmit error. It gets worse until it stops transmitting at all.
    This can be repaired by the original manufacturer Arbor Australia (That's us)
    I can repair most problems with these and have now started to do some repairs by changing the BGA CPU's as well.
    Your transmit error can be repaired for $263.64 Ex GST, if that's all that is wrong with the unit, some also need a new cmos battery at an extra $30
    I have attached our RMA form for you to fill out and return with the unit for repair.
