    I did when I had the leds hooked up, but I had removed everything to attempt cleaning all the pads, and only hooked up power, sound, and the activation switches....and it was still having the problem.

    I had considered that, but it has happened when the soundboard is secured to the chassis, and when it is not, with me holding the soundboard directly to absorb any vibrations. And yeah, I was...

    I don’t suppose anyone else has dealt with a similar issue and has a solution?

    ugh...

    Still no clue why my sound board is messed up, then. Nor any idea for a solution.

    Thanks for the response, though...

    Updating Soundboard Firmware?

    Ok, so I apologize if this seems like a boneheaded question...but how do you update the firmware on a soundboard?

    I ask because I have a recent thread discussing my CF9 having problems of erratic...

    Thanks. I’ve read through the threads, and it seems there may be a few ideas to try. The thing that is weird is that this problem seems to be experienced with a decent number of people just around...
  7. Inconsistent, erratic behavior from sound board...feeling defeated

    At Christmas, I got my hands on one of those clearance CF9 boards, and I was ecstatic. Iíve done some basic saber wiring in the past, but this was my first rodeo with a real premium sound board. I...

    Luckily, I tested this morning and I was able to get FoC by using the PEx2 pad. I did bridge the pad, as was mentioned, and that definitely was a factor.

    Thanks

    I had noticed that in a different wiring schematic pic I later looked up. I won't be able to get back to this until tomorrow, but I'm wondering....is the missing pad even technically needed if I...

    That is exactly what I did, and the piece does fit now.

    The thing that makes me wonder is that it appeared like it was meant to fit, but was literally about 1/2 mm too wide to sink down into the...

    Thanks for the reply. Luckily, I think the modification will be pretty simple to allow it to recess further into the choke.

    I have done so with the tri-Cree dry-fitted, along with the heat sink screwed in all the way, and I’m guessing this type of heat sink just doesn’t fit with these pieces...without modifying the heat...

    Acid Etching over a seam?

    I'm finally getting back to a project that sat dormant for about 2 years. It is going to have some acid etching. I've already done a saber in the past that had etching, and I experienced some...

    Absolutely. I think the numbers are a nice exercise in understanding the way it works, though. Will the 18500 get 28 mins? Maybe...but it will likely be in that general ballpark. And the 18650(s)...

    Thanks for the replies. Having no real point of reference so far, is there any estimation of how much time 1400 mAh would actually last powering a saber such as what I described above?

    That's very good to know, Greenie.
