Thanks Gotz
 
2 and 3 grounded works fine for me too, although I still have one unit that 
 insists on flashing the ON light rather than bringing it on solid. In all 
other  respects both units seem to match. Two more should be arriving 
sometime in  the next couple of weeks so will see how they match up.
 
Just for reference, pin 13 is also a ground connection so if just pushing  
wires into the connector it might be convenient to use both grounds.
 
Regards

thanks  Nigel for detecting this glitch. I removed all jumpers now and 
tested some  reasonable new/old combinations resulting in very simple 
scheme:
it seems  to be sufficient to connect pin2 and pin3 to pin8 (ground).
Numbering as  provided by Nigel and markings on my 15  pin-plug.
