This morning the pencil soldering iron of our Weller WD2000M Soldering Station suddenly stopped working and got cold after I turned the station on. The unit's display is showing a message that says "TIP". i checked out the manual, but it doesn't say anything about that. I don't know what it means. Perhaps burned tip?

Before asking Steve to buy a new one, I emailed Weller about the problem.

 There should be a supply of extra tips in the Blue Spinny Cabiney (I can never remember it's French name....)  The drawer is something like the top row of one of the bottom sets of drawers.  You can pick the shape of tip you want, and stick it in.
