The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for the 80/LX450 series tech section continues to be a work in progress. The goal is to have links in the below to other threads and tech articles. By having these linked, instead of pasting the text, the threads will remain live. The live threads can continue to be updated and/or modified for things such as part numbers, adding on additional insight or after a period of time, some follow up information.
These FAQs have been put together by FORUM members. They have put extensive time and research into them. So when you find yourself using them, it would not be a bad thing to send off a thank you.
Again, these will continue to be updated and we will continue to add new ones as we move forward. If you have an idea for a new faq, or would like to take ownership of pulling one together, then don't be shy about it, you'll be helping everyone
