I'm pretty sure they are still available, just not through Snap-on. That tool was made by an outside company and sold by Snap-on. I'll try to find out where it might still be available.

Before I sent anything in for repair I'd try calling Tech Support.
If you don't want to do that, then re-image the unit. If it's a software problem, that will fix it.
