For the last few months, my device hasn't been operating like it first did using TC with SS coils in my Crown.  It either faslls out of TC or burns the coils. 

I just bought a Theorum and tried the Notch coil using Steam Engine 316L TCR.  It's still not reading the temp.  It just gives me a dash.  This is the same thing that happens with my Crown coils as well as my Ni200 coils for the TFV4.  Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here? 

Thanks,
Footbag

What are you using for a curve or TCR value for each of them?

Their post's says they are using steam-engine's TCR value.

Yes.  Steam Engine.  I used 9 wraps and 4mm.  I wanted to get the Ohm's to match the .22 that the coil is reading.  I don't know if that changes anything. 

Could a firmware or profile get corrupt?  This seems to be the same issue that I've had with the Crown and TFV4.  I've cleaned all of my contacts, but it's just not performing well.  I've actually been using my SX Mini for a lot of TC stuff wioth RDA's because the DNA 200 had been temperamental.  This is after months of working perfectly.

Sounds like you have a connection problem inside the mod, maybe the 510 or board grounding.

Sure it is possible that it could be firmware corruption too (besides what VapingBad has already mentioned). You are not running any of those beta versions, are you? Your configuration could be corrupt too. Save your configuration CTRL-S) before going further. Things to try are:

1) Software reset

2) Hardware reset

3) Resetting to default

My firmware is an older one.  I think the second release.  Not a beta from what I remember. 

It's a Vaporshark, so I can only see so much of the board without taking it apart.  I can do that, but would there be a way to rule it out without taking it apart?  I pulled the battery and looking at the 510, it seems fine, but it's mostly behind the plastic.  I can take it apart if I knew what to look for. 

Is it worth upgrading to a newer firmware first?

Yes most definitely. Update EScribe and update the firmware. EScribe v1.0.42.0 Feb27 I believe is the latest one.

Whoa!  New firmware and it's reading the temp.  Gotta get the temp settings right, but it's a lot closer then it was before.

EDIT:  Maybe.  Now it's showing extremely low wattages and very high temps.  Maybe the OHMage is off.  Gotta let it cool down and relock it.  It was really jumping around though.

Yes that is what it would do with a connection problem inside the mod like VapingBad had mentioned. You might see more by running the Device Monitor and watch voltage, live ohms, power, and temperature.

Gotcha.  I rand device monitor and the temp is flying all over the place.  The live ohms seems pretty stable as does the power (thought it's low).

So if I open it up, where am I looking?  The 510 or something on the board?

510 wires, wires to the DNA200 board, ground connections, etc. Also when running EScribe, first tab there is an atomizer button at the bottom. That will give you a live ohm reading of your coil. Maybe you can tap and wiggle things and see one that causes it to change all over the place.

Guess I'm opening it up.  It's intermittent.  Works for 3s and then drops to very low power.  

Thanks.

have you tried dripping a bit of juice down the spout to make sure your coil is evenly and constantly wetted seeing as your confirming steady resistance your connections must be (ok)
Also now that your upto date on firmware, why not try the pre set values. Lock device and press all three buttons then scroll up or down, select stainless ect.
I think stainless is a real b**** to work with, and its too time consuming for me, i like plug and play Ni200/Nife30, but i can replicate what your describing with a dry coil.

Thanks.  I just tried, but it seems that's the same profile that is installed via Escribe.  Is there supposed to be another profile in there by default?
