Is it possible to repair a motherboard if it is taken out of the instrument, or does it have to remain attached for testing?

Many thanks.

It depends entirely on what's wrong with it, who is doing the repair, how knowledgeable he is about the item that's under repair, and what test equipment he has available. If there is an obvious fault (leaking capacitor, cold solder joint, ....) then it could possibly be repaired on its own. Otherwise, possibly not.

To sum that in a few words, your answer is maybe -- it's probably not a great idea, though.

'It depends' if the repair shop or person has an appropriate test rig for the board. That could be just another same model DP that they use to swap the board in and out. If they don't have a test rig there's a chance the board will not be repaired properly if at all if it has multiple faults
