This is a bit of a worry as I am about to purchase a Silvia, (was going to be a Vivi but budget just won't allow at present;-() is this a common as my wife is going to beat me about the head if it has to keep going back.

I don't think it is common. These are the only cases I have heard of and there are lots of happy Sylvia owners on TMC, plus a few of us with the pre-Sylvia Audrey model that has almost identical innards.

I'd have no problems in buying another Silvia, there are thousands in circulation and some of them are bound to have gone wrong but the Silvia simple and robust using commercial quality components so it's easily repairable.

And guest....I've only had the Silvia for a few months (a secondhand machine at that), I've managed to strip down and fix a fault on the machine and can testify to Ian's comment:
