I'm considering the purchase of a 2003 CDS3. I addressed to the seller, who is a hifi afficionado, the fact that the transit screws have to be fitted and that the unit has to be level when inserting them. Now he sends me pictures prior to shipping (on my request) with the screws for the mech in place but also pictures of the underside of the unit (with the unit standing on it's side) with and without the screws for the circuit board in place. Assuming he fitted the screws of the mech in the right, how much damage will there have been to the suspended circuit boards if he moved the unit on it's side without the screws for the circuit boards in place?
I'm about to call this deal off, which is a pity not only because it's a good deal financially but also because the communication with the seller, although troubled by a language barrier, has been very good and trustworthy. I really had a good feeling about this buy, so this is quite frustrating for me.
I hope you can help me out here. Searching the forum, I find a lot about the importance of the transit screws for the mech but nothing about the circuitboard screws.
