    HobbyKing has both of the JST connectors, 3S or 4S, male and female.

    White Screen!

    I'm hoping to send them both the screen and the board. I only hope that after they get them the problem duplicates itself so they can find out what the heck is doing it. Being south of the borer, in this case, works to my advantage. On another note, is there any way to entice you guys "up north" to send the cool air here in the summer rather than the winter?

    White Screen!

    Well, I spoke too soon or YOU jinxed me, Steamer. I picked up the 75C after it had sat for about a half hour and the screen is white, well not totally white it kind of looks like a vapor cloud on a white background. It still fires normally though. Next rainy day I'll pull the board and screen, install a new one and open a ticket. It's only a few months old.

    In this case it might not be a screen or board failure but a glitch, somewhere, in the screen coding. I'm not saying the problem is "cured" I'm just saying the problem has not reappeared since changing the theme, which is kind of strange.

    Alpine Tech, of FleaBay, has nice enclosures with buttons, board sleds and battery holders. Stealth Vape has good 510 connectors. A 3S and a 4S are different plugs, the 3S has four pins, the 4S has five pins, so I don't think you could use a 4S cable to charge a 3S battery, the keyways won't allow it. That's why they're different, to prevent mistakes with, potentially, explosive batteries while charging them.

    White Screen!

    Screen or board replacement is on hold. Out of curiosity I changed the theme on the 75C that was producing the white screen occasionally. The theme history is the original Evolv replay theme followed by the original "Materialish Fire" theme. I updated that to the latest version, used it for a few weeks, then reverted back to the original Evolv theme. That's when the white screen problem cropped up. Monday evening I decided to put the Materialish them back on it, haven't seen a white screen since. Another thing that was happening with reload of the original Evolv theme was that it was constantly asking "new coil", almost every time it sat for a half hour or more. That "symptom" has also disappeared. I can't help but wonder if there's a glitch, somewhere, in the original Evolv theme on a reload or if it simply just glitched on my 75C when I reloaded it. Ah, the mysteries of modern vaping, but cudos to Sir Timmy Timbit for that theme!

    White Screen!

    I hate screws showing on the front of a mod so I gamble the board/screen won't fail and use CA or epoxy. I've tried various tapes but never found one thin enough or adhesive enough. Board sleds aren't expensive in the grand scheme of things, just a little finicky getting the old one out, but heck, it's on the inside where the mistakes won't show anyway.

    White Screen!

    I built the mod, a GL1 from AlpineTech, and there's no way to get the screen out without pulling the board sled, not enough room the way the screen recess is made. Worst case I'll need a new sled. Not a biggie, just a PITA, and I will remove the board before I work on getting the sled out.

    White Screen!

    It looks like I've joined the "white screen club" only mine is on a 75C. I had been using the mod for a while, put it down for a few minutes, picked it up and got a blank white screen. I removed the batteries, dual 20700s, put them back in and all was fine again. I did notice a few extra characters down in the lower right coner of the display that looked like "gs" or "6s", couldn't really tell. Now the background has gone white. I'm using the default Evolv theme and that has a black fading to blue at the bottom background normally. Maybe time for a new screen, groan! The board sled is epoxied into the mod 😕

    The best paper weight ever Volcano DNA200

    Did it ever dawn on you to open a ticket with Evolv? They stand behind their products pretty well and I'm betting they'll fix it and ship it back to you quite quickly and at no charge to boot. I've got a dozen DNA devices running, from a DNA40 on up to several DNA250Cs, with the oldest being over four years of regular use, and have had one that failed. Then again all mine are hand built by me so I can't speak to the quality of commercial stuff.

    Silicone Wire

    Generally speaking the screw size, machine screw size, is 0-80. For plastic or wood a size 0 with an appropriate length would work.

    Help with ohms

    My experience is that is related to a poor connection(s) somewhere in the atomizer/mod combo. Grub screws, 510 center pin, plating on the atomizer or mod 510, unstable coil material...well, you get the idea.

    Replay on 75c

    I think the bottom line is that replay is more of a refined TC method. It won't work unless a TC capable wire is used and it measures the resistance. By inference, that resistance translates to a specific temperature.
