light blue squares i get not voltage

yellow stars I get voltage but 0 on the rest of that side of the chip
purple starts I get no voltage but readings on the rest of that side of the chip

Hoping it is just a bad part I can swap as I got this at a steal but then it died after 2 days.



All the no voltage areas....maybe the big microcontroller

Quick Update....I now have experience with 3 of these breaking

1) Bought used off Chicago Music Exchange.....worked for 45min and then the drive side would not function no matter what (not the switch issue that some Bogners suffered from). CME was great and did a full refund

2) Bought used off Guitar Center which shipped it to my home and I included the 2 year insurance. Arrived absolutely dead....would not take wall or 9v power. Brought it to the Times Sq GC. While there they offered to give me a deal on the last new one they had in stock....

3) Literally the guy at GC get the new in box LG and goes to pull it out of the foam it is surrounded by and the drive footswitch lifts up with only the mechanism behind it preventing it from falling out (as if nothing was attached). We both looked at each other and realize I was almost sent home with yet another broken La Grange.

Listen...things happen. I could just be unlucky. Just dont buy one without a good way to get you money back if it dies quick.

Having talked to Bogners repair dept you will essentially pay $60 for replaced boards + shipping there and back.

All that said....the 45mins I did have with one was sublime and I may take a stab at an insured #4.....ugh
