Saber turns off after 5 Sec.??
« on: June 04, 2019, 06:01:25 PM »
I am quite sure this has been addresed, but just for a refresher: Can someone remind me as to why when on this new build I am doing, I turn the saber on and it automatically turns off after like 3 seconds..!!???  IS it the code on the disc? a short?  I have checked all the wiring and connections -theu look fine. I checked the code on the disc - perhaps I am missing something..??  Battery is freshly charged.  Prizm 5.0 or 5.1 I believe.

Thanks

You weather have a short somewhere or arenít using a battery that is up to the task. We would need the full specs of your saber to be sure.

I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And thereís a fresh one if you mouth off again.

It has worked in the past with the same components. The battery is a Lion 3.7 V so I think it's good on the power front. I will check for shorts...

It is possible that something has fatigued over time and come loose to cause the short.  It is also possible a component on your electronics has failed. If you start taking it apart to diagnose and get stumped, please share clear, detailed photos.
