Yes, but that's not a user-accessible control, so I couldn't use that to
prove my point ("it's never been opened to be messed with", etc.).
I'm almost positive the 5153 photos that were used as "evidence" were
pictures of, let's face it, a slowly-failing 5153 or similar. I had to
ask for the schematic to prove my point.
Some people just believe what they want to believe. It was like a
religious argument at times.
