I learned never to commit myself to a repair before looking at the problem....

Quoted from swampfire:

Dave at Alltek was very responsive and helpful. We figured out the problem after a few emails. It turns out that whoever installed a supercap in my board didn't make the required mod to allow charging it. D7 has to be jumpered out as shown below, otherwise the cap never charges to over 0.5V.
So, the problem wasn't the Alltek board, it was a faulty modification of the board.

I'm sure he gets many emails on that problem. He got the same one from me a couple of years ago.

Quoted from joey__p__1966:

I also learned that pop bumpers are not that difficult to take apart, I have avoided them for 20+ years.

Oh yes, they're easy to take apart. It's putting them back together that's a pain in the ass due to the order the parts have to be reassembled in. Can't tell you how many times I've had to take a pop bumper back apart because I didn't put it together in the right order.
