@espresso1 Great, thanks for letting us know :) And sorry for my late reply :/
@espresso1 Also check this comment from @geehaw : Cleaning the ribbon connector could help …
@espresso1 Please check or re-check that both connectors/cable are well connected in step 7 of the tutorial (picture 2 and 3) ;) I suspect that one cable is for the power (= screen is illuminated) and the other for the data. Do not know which cable is responsible for what but I suspect that the thin brown one is the Data cable (double check that it is correctly connected and that both the cable and the connector are clean).
@rafaledesma When you are in stand by mode in the Syntia machine, you should be able to access the menu by pressing the right bottom key of the machine (the one with a coffee bean and a coffee spoon). This does only work when the machine is in standby mode (powered on). If on stand by, the screen should print a big standby icon in the center and on the bottom right of the screen, it should be written “MENU >“ (the arrow after menu pointing the button to press). If this button does not work in standby mode, assure you that it does work when not in standby (when pressing it not in standby mode, it should allow you to change the aroma strength of the coffee or use ground coffee and each press should be reflected in the LCD screen) ;)
@gtzur If there is water in the water tank and you' have emptied the coffee grounds collector and pressing the button to make a espresso (for example) does not work, yes I suspect that there is also a problem with the main control board.
Thanks for sharing your love Aldo :p
Glad to have been able to help you :)
Happy repairing !
Thanks for the tip @geehaw , good to know :)
If the machine works properly, I think there is good chances that it is the display that is defective. I think that the display is composed of two "parts", the LCD display itself (which displays the symbols) and color LEDs (red, yellow and green) on each side. Replacing the display should work. In my opinion, if it was the microcontroller/main electronic board, the machine wouldn't work anymore.
Good luck !
