RE: triade dna200 not firing
That's a pain!

Hopefully you have one or more suitable devices to stick an atty on.

I'll bet it is connectors of some sort. It is always either that or power supplies.

Is it possible your charging device isn't putting out the current it is supposed to? I find Samsung chargers are bad for dying on me. The one I got with my S3 only outputs around 70mA and the one that came with the S5 can barely manage an amp on a good day (Supposed to be 2A)

Crappy Micro-USB cables can seriously drop output current

RE: triade dna200 not firing
I have an 18w 2.1a aukey charger, most powerful one I could get at the time, not saying the charge circuit is good enough though. I did try several sets of charged batteries, all with the same outcome.

I'm sure your right Don, it's a connection issue.. I've cleaned it out with contact cleaner and hit it with a 100psi airline but it's still the same. Strip and check is the only way forward now.

Could do without it though, I've got way too many projects to be getting on with as it is Dash2


Here's a short and very poor quality vid of the malfunction

RE: triade dna200 not firing
Looks like it starts initialising itself then gives up. I wonder if Escribe will tell you anything useful?

RE: triade dna200 not firing
never thought of that 

Does it need a power source or does the usb supply that?

RE: triade dna200 not firing
The USB should supply enough power for it to boot, but not for it to fire.

You can reset the mod on escribe Gently and do a complete analysis.

RE: triade dna200 not firing
You beat me to it Paul - I was about to say to reset it in Escribe. And see if there is a firmware update.

Yep. https://downloads.evolvapor.com/SetupES.exe

It is free but you may have to register with the Evolv site to download it. This was not necessary in the past but may be now.
