Force read the ohms?

I've been collecting DNA mods and 3D printing DNA devices for many years now. Obviously a big fan. However, there's one thing that bugs me a lot when it comes to the "old" non-color models… How on Earth do I force them to re-read the resistance? Lots of cheap mods have a keyboard shortcut for that. Yihi has a keyboard shortcut for that. You can do it from the menu on color DNA models… But is there a shortcut for it in DNA250 and DNA75 chips?

I very, very, very seldom ever need to re-read resistance either and never re-read a hot atty.. You are not trying to re-read a hot atty are you?

The non color boards are always reading the live resistance. 

Nope. You can lock/unlock resistance by 5 clicks, then power + right key, or you can do it in Escribe.

The easiest way I've found is to remove the atty, hit the fire button, replace atty. 

In case of locked resistance, you have to unlock before doing that, then lock afterward. That's a ridiculous amount of keystrokes. Yes, it's fairly rarely needed, but why make it so complicated?!

Don't insult my intelligence Tim Cook, I do need a headphone jack. Force reading resistance is needed mostly in cases of heavy contact clapton coils. No matter how much "strumming" you do during installation and how perfectly they glow, they always "settle", drift from their initial reading somewhat, in a second or even a third digit… But that's enough to throw the temperature readings out the window. Once the coil(s) have "settled", you re-read the resistance and live happily ever after, till the next coil.

Was not "insulting" your intelligence. I merely was asking a simple question. It is kinda hard to determine most posters' level of understanding DNA technology, especially if they only have posted 2 posts....🙂 don't you see?   I may not be the sharpest pencil in the package as I've only been helping folks with DNA technology for over 10 years. I may have forgotten a few things about the Darwin, Kick, Kick 2, DNA20, DNA25, DNA30, DNA40, DNA60, DNA75, DNA 200, DNA250, DNA75C, DNA 250C/DNA 400C, DNA Go, and the Reflex.  Hum, have I left any others off this list?

As you know setting the initial resistance with a hot atty will cause it to drift quite a bit.  I try to tell folks to set the cold atty resistance first.  If you fiddle with the atty to get it to glow right, let it cool down so the atty and the mod are at the same temperature (what we call room temperature) and then set the cold resistance.  I think you will find less drift and you may not need to occasionally lock the resistance either.  . In Resistance Locked mode the DNA  will use the present atomizer cold resistance without refinement until the atomizer is disconnected or the resistance lock is disabled. It defeats the refinement function.
