OK, I'm not a big CW operator, I'm 70 and my joints show it! But I collect vintage stuff. I bought one of these on eBay for almost nothing, but it had problems. Then another one came along and it was also cheap. #2 worked fine.
Poking around inside #1, I noticed an added wire. Evidently somewhere along the line, someone added it to get it working, but the memory was not working. Finally, I found a joint that was never soldered at the factory. Removed the wire, replaced the LED, soldered the connection and replaced one chip. Works perfect.

Thanks for looking!
