without knowing a bit more its hard to say but you should be able to get a new board no problem.It could be your boiler is old and has become uneconomical to fix but thats up to you as the customer to decide the engineer can only advise you.

yes, ian price is right, it may be the pcb replacement and electrical sections to replace are so expensive, and they are! £130-190 min.. so its up to you as the customer,and of course these bits may not be available. it could just be a loose connection but all connections need checkin,not worth it poss..
