I received my ‘The Light’ saber from VV over a month ago and it arrived with an issue that I’ve been unable to resolve since. I’ve contacted VV via email several times, but had nothing back, so hoping that maybe someone here who owns the saber can help.
In trying to access the battery and SD card I am assuming that this is a standard combat class install as this is what was stated in the saber description, and it was also briefly mentioned in the original VV announcement video when it was ordered in September last year (but I did not notice any demonstration of access to the chassis).
The pommel comes off, then you unscrew and remove the inside detailing piece. The ‘fins’ also can be removed at this point (which seems advisable if you are going to try and shake the chassis out). When I do this on mine I can see the speaker like a standard combat class install, but no amount of shaking it shifts it at all - it arrived jammed in there and is going nowhere. Question to any owners of this saber - is it a standard combat class install with access as I have described, or am I missing some other way to gain access to the battery?
I have viewed the Phoenix Props video on assembly of the empty saber, and it looks like my only remaining option is to dismantle the saber from the top by removing the screws holding the top of the main body section together. This would allow me to push at the chassis from the other end. I haven’t done this to date as it would invalidate any warranty, and I would like to confirm that my assumptions on the install are correct.
Unfortunately this issue has resulted in the saber sitting on the shelf for the last month and a half, so any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
