Sigelei 75w doesn't turn on
Thank you for any advice anyone can give - I think it's probably a lost cause though Sad  
I've used it for a few months, it's been really reliable up til now.  Yesterday it had a "high atomiser" warning, which was a bit odd because the atomiser was a stock coil in my Natutilus X, which had been fine for days.  I put a new coil in and it worked again until this afternoon, when I changed the battery and it just refused to turn on afterwards.  I've tried a few batteries in it and no joy.  
 
If it is just a paperweight now, what would be a good (cheap) replacement?

Have you tried the Sigelei with different tanks? There have been several negative posts about the Nautilus X. Otherwise, my guess would be it shorted. There are a lot of 75W options out there. I hear good things about the Wismec Presa, and I enjoy my Pico.

RE: Sigelei 75w doesn't turn on
Thank you.  I have tried the Sigelei before with different tanks.  This time though it just doesn't turn on - even without a tank on top - and I've put the Nautilus on a different mod and it's working.  I like the Nautilus just find it dry burns really easily - so needs to be topped up a lot (and it has a tiny capacity anyway so it needs constant topping up).

Guys, it's Jessica. No one else has tried to help? I mean, of course we try to help everyone, but this is Jessica!

Jessica, have you cleaned the contacts and the 510 threads really well? Is it possible that the 510 pin in the mod is out of adjustment and not touching the atty anymore? Juice run inside the mod that needs to be cleaned? I don't know that mod so I don't have anything specific.

Hi Jessica. I have an SMY 60 I got via a deal on here a while back. It only takes one cell which isn't perfect. Its yours if you want it its only been gathering dust anyhow.

I'm using the SMY 60 mini right now, it's a good mod. And we all know Rob's a good guy, so win-win.

Sorry to hear about that Jessica, it sounds like unfortunately your mod is probably a lost cause. I'd take Rob up on that offer if I were you, the SMY60 looks like an awesome mod and I had actually planned on being part of that group buy but didn't have the funds at the time.

RE: Sigelei 75w doesn't turn on
Thank you all very much for your help Smile  All the contacts in the Sigelei are clean + there's no evidence of juice inside + the pin is still very well sprung - I think it is truly dead.
I do have other mods, I'm just wanted to resurrected that one if possible - it is (was!) really reliable and useful.  

And thank you VERY much @robjenko for your very kind offer Smile  I ordered an IPV2 from FT earlier, but thank you - the offer is really appreciated.  I looked at the Pico - it looks really good, but I've destroyed too many eleafs in the past.  The Wismec looked excellent too but I can't do TC + it looked like that was its strength.
