Now I kinda regret buying the system. I have never sodered anything before nor have I really replaced any electronic parts(beside adding RAM to a PC, which was plug and play). Basically I'm at a point where if I find another system that works, then that'll be the system I use. I might still try some more cleaning again, just in case. This really does bum me out though. The guy I bought the system from said it wasn't tested. That should've been a warning sign to me, but I was so excited to find a system, that it just didn't sink in. Live and learn.
