744T - Sound Devices service question
« on: February 03, 2017, 06:58:14 PM »
I was having an Intermittent high pitch noise on the headphone jack...so I sent it in to be checked and give it a good once over check firmware revision etc.

I just got an email estimate 20.00 parts + 295 labor. No report on what's wrong...parts getting replaced results of inspection etc.

Is this normal? I sent back a request for the info prior to releasing payment....is this normal?

I sent in my 744 which needed new TA3 input jacks, new TOD battery holder, and new keypad.  The bench fee of $295 is standard.  If the repairs are minor/low dollar parts, it can seem steep.  However, it will be to factory spec when you get it back.   They will itemize the parts list.  And it will likely be a long time before it needs attention again.
