This interface is about 4 years old. Also, it seems to be registered to another forum user.

Since it's out of warranty, the first thing I'd do is open it up and check continuity between pins 6 and 14 on the plug and the main circuit board in the interface. Do this while wiggling the nose and such. Maybe re-flow the relevant solder connections.

If that doesn't fix it, we have a flat rate repair/replacement program; directly from us, it's $129 plus shipping.
