That is interesting... no one I know who had a Senior II / Senior2 ever mentioned having to send it in for this. It may have something to do with how much time the unit sits with the power turned off. As long as the power is on, the unit is running off the wall current. Prior to the new iScreens many Apilus users always left their machines on overnight. Perhaps this is why. wink

Hi everyone!
as you all know i will be doing DYI on myself, i read The Blend Method by Bono and learned a lot more!!!
I was hoping someone could point me into the right direction for a magnification device, i have a few things in mind and i want the best possible because i think that is important to see what you are doing...here is a few links:

1. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/LED-8X-Desk-Table-Clamp-Mount-Magnifier-Lamp-Light-Magnifying-Glass-Lens-Diopter-/232059311900?hash=item3607d0171c:g:xykAAOSwawpXvmop

3. http://www.instantron.com/ UNDER MAGNIFIERS/HEINE LOUPE(wouldn't give me a link on this one-sorry:)

Thank you again, for your input is much appreciated!!!

the heine loupes have too long a focal lengthto work properly. Both the loupes you link to have really low magnification. The 8X circle lamp looks to be the same magnifier I use in my office. From a price/benifit analysis this is a GOOD bang for the buck. I like it alot. If I was going to spend money on a better magnifier, it would probably be a microscope .

For facial DIY, a really good strong magnifying mirror as strong as you can get it.

Hi Seana,
Thank you again for your advice, i don't really want to spend more than about $600.00 for magnification. Do you think i could find any microscopes in this price range or should i just go for the 8x circle lamp?
Plus i wouldn't even know where to start looking for something like that...
I was just trying to find something that would be easier to work on myself with, do you think the lamp would be comfortable enough(trying to picture the positioning lol:)

yu wnt find a microscope for $600 no. They generally are in the range of 10 times that.

It's not a horrible option. You will find the focal length very close on it, and I dont know how that will work out for DIY work.Working on someone else I have very few issues but there is a tendancy to get very close to the glass.A 3.5 X might be better suited to DIY work.

HI again, I couldn't find a 3.5X but I found this Dazor USA built lamp that is a 5x (16 diopter) with strong LED's
Here is a link:
https://www.dazor.com/store/LED-Stretchview-Clamp-Base-Magnifier-42.html
This lamp also has a "hi-lighting" feature...do you think that would help see those light hairs(i have a lot of lighter hair since i am whats called "A dirty blonde")???
what is your opinion?
Thank you much again!!!

a focal length of 2 1/2 iches is not enough room to work.
