Re: [avgjoe] Cypres 2 service bulletin

For recent units only:

CYPRES 2 units manufactured February 2009 through December 2012 (02/2009 - 12/2012).

A modified component from a supplier may rarely cause an unexpected lockup even when showing zero. May happen in high static electricity conditions.

Therefore check before each jump is required, by pressing the button to confirm the LED flashes. [Very inconvenient!]

The bulletin does confirm that one packing mat Cypres fire did occur.

Cypres maintenance and production were held up recently while Airtec hunted down the problem, I was told by SSK. [Explaining why my unit isn't back from maintenance yet.]

Perhaps unusually, there is no actual recall of the units, and no indication of how the issue would be fixed if the unit is sent back outside of normal maintenance.
