How to Fix AP SnackShop Single Row Stopped Working

I was hurrying up on my locations especially towards the weekend.  I mostly work mid week till weekend now especially now when most of my high performing locations are closed!

Here in Vancouver, BC most of the locations are still closed.

I got lucky i have a handful that are open and allows me to service, so i work 3 times a week for now.

Here in Vancouver, the policy makers and authority is going to reopen on the 1st Week of July Tentatively in case there are not much Corona Virus cases anymore.

In Vancouver, the cases seems to be under control due to the people who closely follow the government advisory hence this thing should stop and things go back to normal.

If by July things do not go back to normal then a lot of businesses might go under and some peole might loose their homes since its the businesses that fuel the bills for all expenses.

So for small business owners like me, I am in a very fragile situation.

By not opening community centers, hotels, schools and not allowing these establishments to open, there might be another depression coming on the way.  

And im 100% that if these centers are not allowed to re open then investments and a lot of the small business investors will liquidate their assests here in Vancover and go to places that allows community activities since retail services industries relies on lots of foot traffic to generate income.  Probably investors might go back to their mother country?

They just have to find ways on how to be safe.

I have observed that a lot of Asian Groceries are filled with a lot of people and allows walk ins : No Mask No Entry Policy and the businesses on these areas are coming out from the grave again and filled with customers here in Richmond.

Taiwan is a prime example where everything is still normal and their local economy is virtually nor affected because of the NO MASK NO Entry Policy.

If community centers, major events centers and  large public gatherings will remain close then a lot of small contractors will be running out of funds shortly.  

This just how policies need to be made in a way that everyone is safe.

I have noticed that one of my locations AP SnackSHop Second Row is not working and below are the pictures and steps on how to fix this.

Test the diagnostics and make sure that everything is working again on the ROW that is in question.

Did you see the large sticker glued on the top right corner?

You simply have to carefully follow the instructions on how to test the selections!

You see a simple 5 minutes repair can save again $125 service trip by a technician.  Some techinicians will charge you the initial trip of $125 plus $? ( telling you that a part costs $80 ) but in reality there is no spare part to show you.  Some technicians just makes up a story that there is a defective part that is broken but it is not true.

My advise to you is to do all simple electronics repair by yourself to save money.
