    Default Repair Philips CM8833-II - faulty switch and possible recap (Birmingham)

    I'm based in Brum and have just acquired a CM8833-II, which worked for the first day... the switch then decided to fail! The unit turns on, but the switch won't latch. While I can take a look myself, I figured it might be a good idea to get a professional to look at the caps, and general state of the unit, in case it needs to further maintenance. Any recommendations?
