Ikon issue

As you can see in the photos the older board design had the Tantalum capacitor on wires. The tabs or wires will fatigue over time causing them to break. Another spot to keep an eye on is the daughter board (the small 90 offset board with the pins) the solder joints that hold it to the main board can get stress cracks. Just hit them with a soldering iron to re-flow the solder maybe add a little fresh stuff and it should be good to go. **Images below taken from google search**
