Sophisticated "repairs" include tracing faults and error diagnostics e.g. in motor malfunctions, tricky short circuits, worn-out decoders/boards. The diagnostics-resulting installations (e.g. driving decoder and/or sound installations) with  model-fitting and model-enhancing loudspeaker cutouts, custom-built adapters, custom cables and wiring and more.
