*** My Luxe Wont Charge, FIX IT!!!! please :) ***

Hello again and sorry to waste your time! Well, the luxe used to charge the one time I had ever charged it (I got it in on trade) and now I tried charging it after I sent it out to be teched and the battery life went out, it will no longer charge. Well, first I bought a new charger hoping that would solve all problems but so far its not the case. The two chargers now do not work. Originally, the first charger did charger the luxe at one point way back, now making me feel stupid for buying a new one. I changed the battery and still nothing new. I am confused please help great family of DLX

If I am missing information please inform me and I will promptly respond since I want to know what is going on. I am guessing I will need a new board which is okay but hopefully not! Thanks luxe peoples

sadly no, unless I drove an hour to my field. Unfortunately with college and work I cant find time to get back out till spring.

But anyways, how would that help? Am I doing something dumb and just missing it? I am prone to do that...

so you have tried switching the battery for a brand new one and no luck? and you have also tried charging it with a brand new charger? I hate to say but i sounds like a board problem.

Also, as crazy as it sounds, try using a different outlet to charge. One out let at my field won't charge mine, but all the other will. Goo luck man

Finding someone with another luxe will help with the process of elimination.

1. You got a new charger. It's not the charger.

2. Try someone else's battery. Is it the battery?

3. Try someone's else's board. Is it the board?

If you can't get to the field try having someone meet up with you for some gas money or lunch.

I figure it may be a board problem might need to check out that new 2.0 board but.... I also will keep switching wall chargers (been doing it) cause well you never know. Thanks for the help man!

I tried a new battery and it did not work, no I have not tried another board inside yet but I feel thats an excellent idea, hope I can find someone. Either way though if it is not charging with a new battery or charger MUST it be the board? Or some mysterious obstacle. Either way thanks for the fast help fellas

Also check to see if the charging port is dirty or if its loose. Also check the wires on the batteries and the plug on the board the batteries plug into.

Just had my coffee

when you plug the charger into the gun, can you turn it on? If so then your charger is fine.

I asked so you could use your battery on someone else's gun, I figure it's a problem with the connection from the charger to the board not being complete.

It's hard to say without seeing it but you can determine what it is by ruling out different factors. It's easy to test with another gun. Being an engineer my first thought process to solving problems is always the process of elimination. Then determine how I caused the problem so that I can account for it in the future. Software is a b*tch.

same here

Ya i'm having a similar problem. On both my batteries, I charge until the light turns green and leave it in for 15 min to "top it off" and the most I have ever gotten is 75%. Also my batteries seem to lose their charge very fast. I find myself changing to my second battery after about 5 hours of play. Any advice?

Sorry if this is restated(didnt read other posts) but are the pins connecting the port to the board intact? This would definitly creat an issue. Otherwise it some electrical issue.
