PCBs are custom made parts and unique to each device sold. There are very few general purpose PCBs floating round the market (if any?).
You either need to find someone to redraw the PCB, have if fabricated and filled with parts at a board assembly house - or buy an updated ILM. If you cannot afford a new machine - you have not been setting aside enough cash for your assets (a common problem for small businesses).

"A Chinese model"? Does that mean you don't know how to pronounce the brand or it lacks a brand name? Either way, it seems like my kind of salon.
Hi , it does not have a brand name , the name SPECTRUM on the front is just a name , i was not able to find the china manufacturer . Do you mean you have one in your salon ?!! or i misunderstood you ?

No, it means I was laughing at the fact you have a medical device without a brand name which means an anonymous manufacturer and, likely, no safety testing data or any way to lift liability from yourself when this thing (likely without redundant safety circuitry) burns or shocks a client.

no no , it is not like that , you made your own conclusions :) this is a personal item , not for people , but for my wife , we bought 10 years ago from beirut lebanon where we are now , the agent that use to follow all his machines left lebanon many years ago , and he closed his company . We ended up with a machine that had the name SPECTRUM and searching for this name did not lead us anyway …That is the situation …
