Recently the light has started flickering on the QR reader quite badly until it goes off completely.
I've unplugged the replugged the RJ cable, thinking maybe loose wire due to shaker motor, but no difference. QR reader still reads the codes, but struggles to do so ( due to no light??)
Any ideas or anyone else had similar problem or any other quick checks?

I had that on my Mando, There are two flat circuit connectors don't know what there called but the same as a laptop keyboard or battery try reseating them. It's a bit fiddly.

Thanks for your message and suggestion re the QR issue I've got. Do you mean the connection on the QR reader or in the back box? I take it this solved your issue?

On the QR reader itself

You can see the small (micro) ribbon cables left and right of the blue PCB (these are the ones he's suggesting to reseat). The QR reader is the green PCB underneath and the black surround is the apron.
