The 767 problem was located in the Elevator Feel Mechanism.No fault was found in the original unit,but a replacement on loan from Delta was fitted and the plane ferried to CPH.
The latest return was caused by a faulty cabin light fitting which was replaced and the plane is back in service.It was a flight from Oslo to Stockholm,not CPH-OSL.
