SOLVED!!!

Seemed to have been related to USB sync/signalling...

Process used to re-fresh screen change modes on a laptop PC:

1. After adjusting settings in escribe, upload settings to device
2. Press Disconnect button in escribe
3. With USB cable plugged in, close the screen (effectively sleeping the computer and ports)
4. Wait for the 'charge bolt' to go off
5. Disconnect USB from the mod (leave other end connected to laptop)
6. At this point, the mod acts as if it's in charge mode still (but no bolt)
7. Fire the mod once
8. Before it goes idle, PLUG the USB cable back into the device!
9. The charge screen goes away and all is good in the Evolv DNA75 world!

Thanks to those that helped...this was a weird one for sure.

So it now sleeps when not plugged into USB?  That's good....

Hum...... some of that process puzzles me as my understanding of USB ports conflicts with what the process is doing (step # 3, step #4, step #6, step #9).

#3.  Closing the screen (closing EScribe) does not sleep the computer or the computer ports. The ports on the computer are still active. If they weren't active then you couldn't charge the device unless EScribe was running. 

#4.  With EScribe closed and the device plugged in to charge the device should still charge (bolt showing) until the battery is charged (bolt goes off).  Closing EScribe should not cause the charge bolt to go off if the battery needs charging.

#6.  The device should show no bolt because the mod is not connected to charge. How is it determined that the mod is acting as if in charge mode? When in charging mode the bolt should show.

#9. After step #8 with the usb connected again the mod should charge (charge screen showing w/ bolt) if the battery calls for it.

Maybe I'm not understanding the process you post, so I post only for clarification and ask for correction of my conflicted understanding of the steps I mentioned.... THX

Your issue is quite rare.... never seen this one up until now...

Sorry about that, I'll try to clarify.  Honestly, since I got it working I've been too scared to go back in to escribe with it, hahaha.

#3.  I actually mean 'physically' close the laptop screen. This begins sleep process on my laptop and shuts off peripheral power.

#4. Yes, see #3, the laptop is in standby, although I left the OS running and the escribe application window up.

#6. I assume it's in charge mode because the display layout changes to the charge mode settings. e.g. Tempurature-Sensing Coils -> 'Charging' -> show Ohms, Temperature, Battery Charge %.

whichever pull-down values I select for that mode show up after active->idle->timeout where is should have slept instead.

#9. That would be true, but again, my laptop is powered down.  There must be some data short the mod recognizes on the unpowered yet tethered cable.

Thanks!

What happens with an external charger?

When the mod is in this state, an external charger (I've tried a 500mA, 1000mA and 1500mA supply) charges as expected.  Once I reach full charge LED green and 100%, the mod doesn't sleep.  Unplugging from an external charger doesn't resolve the issue.


So for now, I still don't know what's causing this, but I have a process that doesn't get the DNA75 into this state when exiting eScribe.


Thanks!

Is this a factory built mod or did you build it?

It's a factory build, Vapedroid/SBODY C1D2 DNA 75.

I guess that part really doesn't matter, my thoughts were something wet and gooey on the board like flux or juice conducting micro voltage from part a to part b, something along those lines.

Interesting...well let me know if you need a hand getting it back in order.  It really doesn't affect performance of vaping, and the device is really slick.  My only concern with this issue is the increased trickle battery drain.  As I said, a fully charged 26650 will drain overnight if I have 'charging display brightness' set high.

And thanks for all that helped me.  Ayman (Vapedroid), sbody, and evolv all replied timely and were eager to help.

hum.... more folks chiming in with this issue on the Droid.... might want to contact the Droid modder as it may have something to do with how he is configuring his board/device... just a thought....

my friend solved this problem he cut out the LED indicator wiring. & the droid work just fine, it sleep/idle on time as setted time, but without LED. i am pretty happy since i dont really like a blinking & never charging the battery via USB. everything work fine & no more battery drain

Hi, I have the same issue with my vapedroid as well, I tried the procedure that you posted, it worked and went to sleep but when I removed the USB the charging screen went on again and if I plug the USB it will go to sleep again. My question is, with your mod did it worked as it should be after removing the USB? THANKS

Hi all

Just got the Vapedroid C1D2 DNA75 last week. I downloaded the Vapedroid config from their Facebook page and applied it.

My C1D2 then started to behave erratically, with the screen turning itself off and on at random and at other times never going off.

So yesterday I downloaded and installed the current recommended Escribe 2016-05-02, and then hard reset the C1D2 and saved the Escribe default config back to it, wiping all of the customisations. I then reset all of my materials profiles etc manually and did not go anywhere near the Vapedroid configs. I did manually set the mod/thermal/case properties as per the Vapedroid settings though.

The C1D2 immediately started to behave as a proper DNA75 (I have a couple of others so know what to expect) and it no longer behaves erratically. I can only conclude at this moment that there is something out of place in the Vapedroid config that causes the strange behaviour.

Hope that helps,
