    Triade dna 250 bottom screw not tightening?

    It would help prevent fatigue, for the plastic threads. Or, at least prevent further degradation.

    new DNA 75-C questiuons (orobably for staff)

    Is the 75C still a single battery device? or, is two, or maybe even 3 batteries an option? When can we expect a 200 C, and/or a 250C?

    you can try putting loctite on the bolt, and just tightening until it reaches the point where it spins.https://www.amazon.com/Loctite-37418-Strength-Threadlocker-6-milliliter/dp/B000FIXQXK

    Therion DNA 250 166W - (Check Battery)

    Hi, I had the same happen, just last week. It was sitting on the charger, overnight. Nick at evolv said it's likely the daughter board/usb went south. My takeaway from this is I will never charge batteries via usb, again. I have two external chargers. So, there's no need. I'm waiting for the 200, or 250C to come out. After that, my last surviving escribe mod will be my backup mod.

    Mod won't turn on, after sitting all day

    Thanks to you both, ChunkyButt200, and dwcraig1.

    Thanks. I was hoping I could just resolder a wire to the daughter board. But, that would just be too easy.

    Yes, 5.11 volts, standing. Here's a screen shot with the mod firing. It drops to 4.96 volts, according to device monitor. BTW, at first, the battery charge was reading at 63%. But, it would not charge. After a hard reset, that disappeared.

    Another quick question: Since it will work with power supply selected, but won't power on when set to lipo, how is it getting power? Is it the daughter board that's the problem?

    Hi, Thanks. It's an HCigar VT133. Yes, it will vape when I set it to power supply. And, it works when I unplug the usb. Is it alright to use it, this way? There was a warning not to use it on batteries, in this manner. Is this just a cover your own ass liability warning?

    This is the third mod I had go south on me, in the last few weeks. Two were old Hana V200's. Since they're both 2 years old, I guess that is to be expected.

    Mod won't turn on, after sitting all day

    Okay, after getting my mod going, and a new chip, it seems like something went south, again. Not sure why. It had about 87% charge, when I last used it. Now, it gives me check battery message, when on escribe. It simply won't turn on. Symptoms are somewhat different. Battery tray, or chip? Any guesses? I reopened my case with Warranty service. I'll see what they have to say.

    Big Problems with Warranty Service

    That is exactly what i plan to do. I also have the 30Q csv saved.

    Big Problems with Warranty Service

    I will be damned. It worked. Ooops. In my defense, I will have to say that this wasn't required, the first time I got the chip replaced. I'm done, here. Apologies to Warranty service.

    Big Problems with Warranty Service

    I installed it. As I suspected, it changed nothing. The 3rd cell should not be showing, at all. Yet, there it is. It has an abnormally high reading, for a phantom cell. What about the 0 charge/watt hours, and 0 battery level on two fully charged 30Q's? What does that tell you? Is it another bad board, or did the tech break the mod, itself?
