Question Best Places to Service/Repair DFX?

Hi guys,

I just paid for a used DFX with which has some sort of a software issue (only problem as far as I know). Unit will probably not arrive for another week but is supposed to be in overall great condition based on the photos I saw. Any tips as far as factory resets etc? Also, If I need to service it, which place is the best to Service/Repair DFX units?

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Thank you. I'm just wondering if Kellyco or another sponsor company would do the same at a cheaper price. Unless it is advisable to just go with the manufacturer for repairs.

You're welcome... you're in Mass, the Authorized Service Center in the link I sent you is in VA, but you want to send your detector to Fla?

Cheaper isn't always better, I'd be more concerned with it being fixed properly, and by someone who has the correct parts.

Kellyco is not an authorized Whites repair center so they would not have any Whites parts to work with.

What exactly did they say was wrong with it and what did you pay for a dead DFX hope not more than $100!
