Off to find my little screwdrivers
Please be careful, Pippi.
Screwdriver method was a fail, tried pushing it down from the inside - couldn't pry it up from the outside ( no gap) Tried three different coils - its not looking hopeful
Never fear, Noe will be here.
Thanks Flea x
Cut a small piece to fit from a metal fridge magnet ?
do you have an adjustable 510 on one of your mods? that *might* get it connecting
I tried it on every mod I own, except for the Pipe.
3 out of 4 isn't too bad for $12 tanks, i guess
i know ft offer DOA warranty, but you'd probably need to return it
Yes, I dont think its worth returning - I guess I will keep the glass as a spare and bin the rest of it.
I hope those people that just ordered one Vika dont receive a Dud though.
Look in your paddock for a rock,
lift it to see if Noe is under the rock.
@Pippi , there is probably a way to fix it so don't chuck it out.
I just don't know the atty or its construction but can usually get most things to work.
I can't look it up (the atty)at the moment as I have to go out for awhile but hang on for awhile longer and I will have a look later,
unless Noe knows.
Whose Noe ?
Keep it @Pippi you just need a little brass washer to sit between the the tank and 510.
No you don't return it.
Here's what you tell FT in your ticket:
"The atty you sent me is DOA, it won't connect at the 510, the positive pin is too short."
Then Either "1. - I need a replacement positive pin to fix it." OR " 2. I want a refund for one atty." OR "3. I want a replacement atty."
If they insist you return it, reply & point out to them that shipping from Aus to China is going to cost more than the replacement cost of the atty, ie FT would be losing more $ because they would be footing the shipping bill.
They will then see the logic of that & offer you a partial refund (most likely), do not accept it, stick to your guns & you will get what you want, eventually.
It might take a several days or more than a week of replies(because they usually only reply 1ce per day) in your ticket to get it sorted but if you stick to your guns you will get satisfaction
Don't toss it out, if there isn't an easy solution, then put in a ticket to FT & get a replacement or refund
I have never seenthe Vikka broken down into pieces, so, if you can do that & take a few pics, (mostly i need good shots of the base inside & out) then I should be able to work out why it isn't working & come up with a solution.
How have you not blown yourself up yet?
Try something for me, on one of the ones that is working, unscrew the base, unscrew the coil, try pushing the Pos pin into the base from where it would make contact on the mod.
Does it move at all (it may be very slight movement watch close)?
If it does or doesn't either is ok.
Screw the coil back into the base & see if the pin moves out a little again if it moved in with the last test (hopefully it will or you may need to push it back from inside).
Now screw a coil into the DOA base & compare both bases for height of the 510 pos pin, they should be the same for them to both work.
If they are slightly different then there still may be a solution but do this first.
