My beloved ColorStar 3000 has died!!! On trying to turn it on, I get the dreaded "E ..." and NOTHING! Realizing that all of JOBO's activities have been taken over by Omega-Satter, I contactd them, and after a being bouncing all over their answering system, and a few conversations with a human being, the last answer is, "We don't repair ANYTHING here - we are only a Distribution Company. The ColorStar woud have to go back to the Netherlands - and they only have one tech who works on those. We e-malied them last week, and they have not responded yet." - All with a significant lack of enthusiasm. I asked them for any information about the other analyzers now or formerly suggested on their web site... "No, we don't have anything about those." The best I could do would be to go to one of Omega's Dealers - "We don't sell anything directly" and order one.... (~ US$ 1400) or, rather try to convince one of their dealers to order one. "Anything else I could do? Any independent repair services you could suggest?" resulted in an immediate deep freeze. So, Omega is of NO help. I e-mailed S. K. Grimes - waiting for a reply. Does anyone have ANY suggestions for a repair outfit wiling to work on this puppy? I would be eternally grateful for any help/ direction... and the Karma rewards would be immense!! We had another bit of trouble here in Ipswich, Mass. Recent torrential rains damaged four (4) of the five (5) bridges over the Ipswich River, forcing their closure - effectivley splitting the town in two, held together, barely, with only miserably difficult vehicular traffic. To me ... hah! .. nothing, compared to the loss of my ColorStar.
