    When I get out to the warm room I'll check all those numbers but what I have now is that.....
    The serial number is X18040001.
    Here is a 360sec dark I took yesterday at -24 deg.

    I took the back off the 16803 to blow dust off of things and have a look around.
    On the PC board it was written in pen
    X18040001
    16803

    On the printed circuit board etched in to the board it says....

    STX-PCB-030
    01/09/13
    Rev E

    Hope this helps

    No wonder the 16803 stopped playing nice, you missed its 10'th year birthday.

    Best,
    Tim

    Maybe it's a "Best if used by" thing?

    Hi Greg,
    After reviewing internally, it looks like the camera needs to come in for repair.
    I'll send you a message shortly with some details.

    What a nightmare.
    I spent hours trying to fill out the UPS forms (and I have an account). You'd think we were on different planets.

    That's odd. We recommend using Federal Express, because it is reliable and people don't seem to have much trouble, and because the method of shipping we indicate avoids extra fees.

    One of the hazards of living in a remote Rocky Mountain location in western New Mexico I guess.

    Just be sure to follow the shipping instructions. Tip: Express shipping is actually cheaper. If you send it ground there will be additional brokerage fees that are much bigger than the cost of shipping Express.

    FedEx will neither pick up nor deliver to my house. The nearest location is in Albuquerque which is 170 miles away (340 round trip).
    I wrote a pm to Colin about it.
