My first thought is take it back to the shop you bought it from and
*carefully* describe your problem. Your problem description should
include the location, the equipment in use, what you did, with what
results, etc. It's possible that they will be clueless. If so, ask
them to refund your money. They SHOULD have someone who has a clue!
Please report your results. It may help others with similar problems.
If you do get knowledgeable help, you should make a note of their names
and write to their superiors and let them know the the people you talked
to did a good job.
Those people take a lot of abuse, a "pat on the back" can make their day!
