These Garrets do produce some duff ones, i had one do the same. Good job they have a good returns policy x;
They have probably realised by now just how unreliable they are! :D I managed to get my dibber going again but it was probably more by luck than judgement.

Mine did exactly the same and became totally unusable in less than 1 year. Dealer replaced it and the new one works brilliant, better than the first one ever did. ::g
