Yes it connects to escribe and seems to work fine if I use the buttons on my computer in monitor button simulation mode but I have to unlock it everytime with 5 clicks? Is that typical for the DNA? I thought it just said to press the fire button once to turn on?

When connected to EScribe in Device Monitor does it show any buttons as pressed (at the bottom of the window), just thinking it could be something on the board shorting the button though that would also unlock it.

I remember the first time I put it in monitor mode I think the fire button stayed on when I pressed the virtual button. I will check when I get a chance though. Do you mean just see if the button is lit up? Thanks by the way for reading this and trying to help. Both of you. This is so frustrating

At the bottom it has a text label "Buttons:" and it will have "fire" after that if it is getting the fire button signal.  It is a long shot, but worth checking.

Probably won't be till after work tonight but I will look. The thing that's really strange to me is that before flashing it when I pressed the fire button DNA200 showed up on the screen for a second but after flashing it nothing.

When that happened to me it was 2 things. First I didn't have a great connection on my sled. My first time soldering and the work was rough. Once I redid that it was still doing the flash so I tore it down and inspected every single connection. Come to find out one of the pins on the balance tap that solders to the board had broken connection at the board joint. Once that was re soldered it worked great. Good luck.

All my pins are there and I "think" all my connections are good and correct. I've done lots of soldering although my iron tip was a mess at first so I had to hold it on some of the connections longer then I would have liked. Mine doesn't flash anymore after updating the software. Everything works fine accept the fire button when it's plugged in. Everytime I plug it in the screen is locked at first though. If I use the button simulator on my computer I can unlock it by pressing fire 5 times and then it seems to work "with onscreen buttons" but fire on the board still does nothing. I don't have it in a box or the 510 put together so I can't actually fire an atty with the onscreen buttons if that's even possible.
Thanks for your reply though. I appreciate any suggestions at this point. I opened a ticket with evolv early this morning but haven't heard back yet.
