TCS John Huxley roulette sign

This may not be the optimum place to post this but it is electronic.
If the moderators see fit please more to the appropriate sub board.

I have an older TCS John Huxley roulette sign.
Possibly 2000 vintage before JH acquired TCS.

To program the sign you use a "TCS Key Box"
This has 4 buttons on it. Two of my buttons have become defective and I need to replace the unit. I have contacted TCS but the $$ exceeds what I paid for the sign.

I am hoping that someone knows of some used equipment perhaps where another component had become damaged and this is now surplus.

This is kind of an obscure part so any leads would be appreciated.

Update

I was able to repair the unit.

It had 8 resistors that connected the button deck to the main circuit board.
Two of the resistors had become fried and the other 6 were quite brittle.

I double checked the resistors a dozen times and they had only 1 black band on them.
I have been out of the electronic repair world for a long time but ... Black = 0 and is usually used as a multiplier. There were no other bands and no tollerance bands either. I double checked with my best multimeter and got no resistance.

Replaced all 8 with solid core wire and the unit is just fine now.

I managed to find a manual on the advanced reader head but cannot find a manual for the TCS PLANTRONICS sign itself. If anyone has a copy that they could PM or Email me with that would be much appreciated.

paltronics sign manual

Hi monaghj,
I have a manual for the paltronics e-fx series display but i am not sure if that is the one you need.
It's 2.8 megs pdf so I cannot attach it to a post but if you are interested pm me your email and I'll send it your way.

correction

I believe that it was TCS that acquired JH and not the other way round.
