    Let's See your DNA 60's!

    I upgraded these old Hana box's. I found a 3D printed sled at Shapeways & fitted the box with a 20700! It fit perfect with no mods to the case at all! Battery life is great with the Sanyo B I wanted to upgrade the door from screws to magnets, but never got around to it

    White Screen!

    Hi One of my 250c's, got a white screen yesterday, just out of the blue. I tried to rewrite the firmware , didn't work. I tried disconnecting & reconnecting the battery, didn't work. I tried rewriting the theme, didn't work. I tried a Hard Reboot & the screen came back :) But It did it 2 more times today :( The Hard reboot still worked :) How ever it is getting annoying now to have to do a Hard Reboot to get my screen back. Is this a known issue? Can I do some thing to Stop This from happening? BTW the Chip still works Fine, when this happens, just a White Screen

    dead screen? gone all white

    This is a known issue! I'v had several go white. If you do a Hard Reboot in E-Scribe it should come back, temporarily. Unlike the old days were if the bend in the ribbon wasn't just rite, the screen could malfunction, the colour screen mods mostly have nice screen cradles that keep every thing in place nicely

    White Screen!

    It is unfortunate that we are having these screen issues I do sympathize with Evolv on this issue, I'm fairly certain they (Evolv) out source these screens? When there is a failure, Evolv is stuck with the repercussions Reminds me of my 1992 Sonoma, It was all ways back at the dealership being fixed under warranty, every time it was cheep "Mexican" Part that had failed

    More Screen Issues

    Is anyone having as many colour screen issues as Me? I have had 3 colour screen failures in the last few months :( I had 2 screens get the White Screen of Death & now I have some spot that is growing, it will take over the whole screen in no time :( Kind of Disappointed :(

    My DNA 250C Build.........

    For those of you's who may be looking to build a more pocket friendly sized, lipo powered 250c mod. This may be a solution for you I built this mod with a silo75c enclosure https://www.protovapor.com/product/silo-dna-75c-billet-aluminum-dna-mod-case/ a source 510 & a FullyMax 950mAH lipo. This enclosure was intended for a 75c! So with out some internal modification a 250c will NOT! fit. The main issue is the space for the chip, as the 250c is 2mm wider. The button fitment & usb fit perfectly, once you remove the extra material for the chip to fit in place. I used a dremel, & it was a lot of work! If some one has access to a milling machine it would be a piece of cake Also note, space management gave me a choice of a better quality 510 (source) or an xt30 connector. I choose the live battery connection & the better 510. If how ever you would choose a Varitube 510, there would be adequate room for an xt30 battery connector See size comparison to a Silo 950, older dna 250, but same size battery

    White Screen!

    Well, it seems some of these screen are infact defective I'm glad spares were offered in the last group buy "better to have & not need" Even if Evolv was nice enough to replace them? shipping from Canada cost more than the screen

    White Screen!

    You may have got lucky? I wouldn't count on it! I would be expecting the inevitable TBH I can't see how a theme has any thing to do with Screen failure. My screen failure did come on in waves, at first I could Hard Reboot. That didn't last to long. I tried different theme's but they had no affect on my situation at all. Plus my white screen was white on more than one DNA 250c.

    White Screen!

    The external chip mount may not look as good with the 3 screws in the face of the mod, But would have come in handy right about now.

    White Screen!

    That makes it a bit worse Mine did exactly the same, on the bottom part of the screen. Good news is over 10 days later, My mod's new screen still working fine
  14. steamer861

    White Screen!

    Yes, the mod has been working fine for several days now. It was the screen. When I opened the mod. I was expecting, some thing obvious? A bad kink in the lead? a juice soaked screen? a loose Zif? None of that Every thing looked perfect! I guess the screen just went out.

    First DNA250C Build HELP PLEASE!!!

    I get my wire from Amazon, lots of selection & no need to buy way more than you need. I guess the consensus is the Evolv 510 is the best! But only available from Proto & not inexpensive :( The Sisco & the Source 510's are both Good options :) Another good source for DIY mod parts https://www.ebay.ca/str/shopatistore Good Luck with the Build :)

    First DNA250C Build HELP PLEASE!!!

    Hi IDK what your budget is? But this would suite your needs. https://www.shapeways.com/product/E28XXKAEX/tool-30mm-mod?optionId=65433301 All the links for every thing you need are on the SW page 50c is adequate IMO. 3S 0r 4S don't matter as much as the mAH, unless you really want the full 400 watts? Also, if you varithane the 3D printed enclosure before you assemble it, it will give it a tough long lasting finish Minmum 16 gauge wire! 14 gauge is even better for the 510 wire. The thick wire is a bit harder to work with but a nice silicon wire helps

    My DNA 250C Build.........

    I understand the numbers It seems to me that a good 18650 (VTC5) would give as good or better Watt Hour rate as a Fully Max 950. But in reality, with low ohm high watt vaping like I do, the Fully Max gives Me better performance & run time. I find the same thing with the 4S 1000mAH lipo in my 250c. With my Vaping style the 4S 1000mAH will give me approximately the same run time as dual 18650's, even if the numbers would say different

    White Screen!

    So I opened it up, I tried a new screen & it works again I tried the old screen on another 250c & it's white there to. So I think the screen is the issue? Luckily I have some extra Colour screens coming with my latest order

    My DNA 250C Build.........

    Hi It's 14.8 watt hours :) Compare this to 10.5 watt hours with a FullyMax 950. It's pretty good :) I would say equivalent to dual 18650's, :)

    White Screen!

    Thanks for the reply The lipo has a XT30, I tried disconnecting the battery & no Go It seems the only thing that works is Hard Reboot. Also the screen isn't working perfectly either, The fonts get a bit distorted (pixelated) , the firing word on the bottom is missing letters, or don't work at all. Right after the hard Reboot the screen appears normal, until I hit the fire button, them the screen isn't normal any more It has done it, several times now over the past few days I fear the screen may not be making perfect contact at the Zif? I found they were harder to insert with the colour screen. It still works for now, this weekend I will open it up & investigate. Thanks again for the reply

    Why do you insist on "MaxAmp"? They are the most expensive Lipo on the market! We are building vape mods, Not Flying $1000.00 Drones. IMO there are a lot of Less expensive options that would Work Fine here. Just Saying

    You shouldn't be afraid to try, soldering is the only real skill you need. You can practise soldering on scraps before you do it on the board The mod in the pic has a relatively small battery, If your looking for some major battery life, a bigger Lipo would be a better choice. The first 2 I posted have 4S 1500mAH Lipos I can vape 2 full tanks plus, on a single charge, with the Supreme + (10 mil per fill) Now thats an ADV
