I'm sure we've talked before. I have the ALT2300 and I'm very technical. (Engineer)
Would you like to chat off line and figure out what's wrong and see if we can fix her?
I know it's much much too expensive to ship for repair but we may be able to talk about it (email etc) and figure it out.
Now, if you firm on putting it to rest, please consider giving it to one of us for parts so we can live on.
