Demon Board Help

Hey guys,


I know this is a long shot but my demon is not turning on.

When I plug it in it says it has full battery and even turns on.

However, when I pull the trigger with a ball in the breach it goes black. If I unplug it while its turned on it also goes black.

I have already tried the small black button for a reset but nothing happens.

I am trying with the old and spare battery and nothing happens so I think it could be the board.

Any suggestions?

Typical behavior when batteries are dead. Not enough voltage to do anything other than barely sustain the screen. Try a new cell of similar voltage/size and battery chemistry. You can cut and solder the molex connector from your old one to the new one.

Hey, while original batteries are no longer available or REALLY hard to come by, there is a guy in another post selling new old stock, but you gotta wonder, 10ish year old battery, will it last or does it work?
You can alternatively buy a modern Li-Po battery, the size is 20C, no less than 650mAh. For example here is a link to eBay on one:

Be careful buying new batteries... The polarity of plugs are not standard in the demon and you will toast the board if you plug it right in and aren't safe.

I have original batteries for sale that are still good if anyone needs. I'll back them with a 1yr replacement warranty, too, just because I know people are concerned about cell age.

If you buy the eBay cells, which are fine, please, please, please check the plug polarity before you try to plug it in.
