    I had this fault on mine... for some reason the brand new units did not work correctly like you explain. In the end I removed all the units new and old and compared the circuitry on the back.

    I discovered a difference, so to overcome the fault I drilled a hole in one of the metal circuit bits and soldered a wire to make it the same as the old unit

    If I can get a picture posted up for you this weekend then I will... but no promisses
