VV shutting off mid clash
« on: May 18, 2020, 11:02:38 AM »
Hey everyone could use some help and I tried googling this problem but didn't see it elsewhere.
I have a Revan saber with a CS4.5 in it and while it has been stellar for a while I have recently been having a strange problem with it.  If I am swinging it against my favorite couch pillow targets for some fun it at random will stop mid FoC and stay at the flash color for about 3 seconds, the audio shuts off, and then it turns itself off with no blade retract sound.  However it will then immediately replay boot font sound and turn back on like nothing happened if I hit the ignition switch.
This problem can happen on the first swing hit or the hundredth at random.  My primary suspicion was that I am jostling the SD card but I swing only at fluffy targets and limp wrist it when it hits so I feel that this should not be happening at all.
Does anyone have any experience or ideas?

You battery might be coming loose, hence the reboot. What I would recommend is CAREFULLY take the battery out, use a tiny screwdriver try to extend the Metal strip out about a mm or two, to make sure the battery would be very secure. That should take care of it.

If not, then your battery might not be able to handle the FoC load required. In that case, I’d try replacing the battery,

I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again.
