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,

Hi Olef, I went through the same process as yours but I'm still experiencing problems with the mod not going to sleep mode. On the screen tab of escribe, is the brightness when charging on your mod set to "0" or a higher value? My problem is instead of the mod going to hibernate/sleep mode it goes to charging mode after firing, if I set the charging brightness to "0", yes the backlight will turn of after being idle but I know it is still in charging mode because if I leave it for a few hours and fire it, it does not show the welcome logo that you get when the device wakes up from sleep mode instead it goes directly to the main screen. Any thoughts? Thanks

Sorry for the delayed reply...

I guess mine is also still failing to go into standby. The screen goes off due to the settings as attached pic, but 7 times out of 10 when I come back to the mod after an hour or two it still come up with the fire screen, not the return from standby.

Interesting because I have three other DNA75's here, two of which I built myself with bare 75 boards and I have not observed this behaviour with them. It seems only the Vapedroid C1D2 does this, or I have not noticed it so far on the others.

Same issue as the OP has/had with the Vapedroid here. When I got mine, it was second-hand, set to factory settings and worked fine. Got the .cvf file from pbusardo's page to get that "droid" look. That's when it started. Going to read through, make adjustments and report.

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.



Worked for me too. Thank you. 
But this is not the way it should be. Is there a way to reset a DNA75 board back to its bare and raw settings, to the settings before time and space?

Thanks.

The "Restore Defaults" button under the General tab will  set it to how it left Evolv's facility. I recommend saving your existing settings first (File/save as) as a backup.

15 min later from default settings or the earlier "fix"?

Nope, tried the default settings - same. If the brightness of charging is set anywhere above 0%, it'll go there and show the battery %.

It won't turn the screen off even when you select "Turn off screen after firing".


Tried helloimage fix again - same results: it works for ~15minutes, then lights up to the charging screen.

Also, the red light stays lit after unplugging the cable until the Fire button is pressed, but that was before then too. If you unplug the cable while there is no atty on the mod, you can't turn that red light off with no buttons. Attach an atty, press fire, then it goes away.


Tested soft reset, hard reset, latest firmware, newest firmware again - nuffin.

Any ideas? Should I report it in the Bugs section?

Thanks,
R

Gee, maybe open a ticket with Evolv and link to your posts in this thread.

Same problem for me, except it happens 100% of the time. My C1D2 never go into "deep sleep" mode.
When I get my device back in the morning, I never get the boot screen, always fire screen. And so it drains slowly my battery over the night.

Tried to restore default settings but it didn't fix the problem. Any idea?

Thank you

Did you re-flash the firmware by chance also?
You might give that a try, can't hurt.
