Woe is Me!

Woe is Me!

Last week I got my brand new Wrath and the board appeared to be fried right out of the box. I sent it in to be repaired and got it back in an expeditious fashion (dang quick). I tested it and worked perfect! So I decided (woe is me) to unscrew the board and double check to if all wire connections were solid and to check out the jumper to see where it was in case I wanted to go full auto. I screwed the bard back in, hooked up my brand new 9v and…WHAMOLA…nothing, same problem I had before.

Did I short out the board? I took all normal precautions one would take when handling electronics. Will NPS repair my jacked up Wrath a second time for such an incompetent slouch like me?

Or am I missing something simple? I changed batteries and nothing.

I have a tourney in 7 days and I’m starting to be concerned that my marker will not be up and running

Any input is appreciated.

Well take a screwdriver and touch the 9v connection then put ur battery in and hold the on button for really long time.. And if that doesn't work well send her back.

Sory, Toby, I didn't quite follow that. Could you be a little more specific? Which 9v connection? Which button?

He means the battery snap that you plug your 9V into, and then the on/off/mode change button.

Thanks I'll give it a shot. One thing, do you mean close the circuit between +/- on the 9v snap connector with a screwdriver?

Yeah, it'll short the charge out of the capacitor, which will reset the board, and then when you reconnect your battery and try to power on, it should come up if it worked. I say hold the on button for about a minute or two, and if nothing happens, even after you discharge the capacitor, then back to NPS with it.

Ok one more question. DO I need to keep the 9v circuit shorted AND hold the button for a couple of minutes? Or, do I short the circuit out (get a spark with my trusty screwdriver) and then hold the on/off/mode button?
