    Default Ego Twist - Light works but wont fire

    So yesterday my ego twist fell and the button was dislodged.

    I look on youtube, boom removed the top and while I was reseating the button I somehow managed to pop the wire off the connector head.

    So I got my 25w sodering iron out and attached it back.

    The light works, the on/off works, but no matter what carto I put on it wont fire.

    Any ideas? Has anyone one fucked with an ego yet?

    I can't find my multi-meter, When I take the kids swimming today I will stop buy and pick one up. But if anyone knows the ego board and what points to check for power to the attie that would be great.

    I'm sure you soldered it fine. It probably suffered damage other than the disconnected wire. Buying a mm to try to fix a $20 batt seems silly to me.

    Or you may have re-soldered it to the wrong point... was it one of the wires on the circuit board? If I remember correctly there are extra soldering points on it... just a suggestion.

    Or maybe theres a ground in the bottom "twist" part that got ripped off and the circuitry it stoping it from working?

    I would think it pretty evident which point had broken solder on/in it.

    I just bought a 39.99 MM for $9.99 .. and I know I have one in the shed/garage somewhere or it was borrowed never to be returned.

    Its not about fixing a 22$ Batt .. well at least not for me anyways .. Its just that if I can fix it, why not?

    I just need to know HOW to fix it

    Not Yet, I will tonight when I get back from swimming with the kids .. swim/bbq/ then Nolan batman marathon (1&2), once the kids are in bed, I will get out the new MM and poke around.

    I am thinking maybe a wire is disconnected from the VV bottom, maybe I pulled it out harder then I thought .. yeah i know .. that's what she said ..

    Throw it the fuck away and order another one. And be more careful.

    Usually the very thin wire snaps right where it was soldered... not the solder or the solder point itself. Also like I said I think there are a few extra tabs with solder on them as well.

    And if a ground was pulled off in the bottom twist part the button circuitry probably wouldn't fire.

    Just trying to help
