Ego-C Twist Repair




What do you think about this video?

brocksdaddy081910: How hard do you think it would be to remove all of the internal componants and change the form factor by reassembling the pieces in a different case potentiometer and all ?

Mark Bartlett: Great videos. The e-cigarette phenomenon is all new to me, so I'm just starting out, but electronics are not, thankfully. I have just had the short wire running from the center (+) feed from the 510 terminal - to the PCB break. Now need to strip / tin / solder the wire to the board. The wire broke from the common place, just above the surface of the component (top) side. I'm going to opt for the lazy solder. Instead of desoldering the broken wire and re-opening the PCB hole, I'm just going to reflow with more solder that has high flux content. :O

ILRegal GSX: Ya their you are again, saw your message about marriage being hyped up and being freinds is better couldn't agree with you more my friend, yes having Vision Spinner problems, stupid thing arrives fully charged and works great until I have to recharge it and it will only charge for about 40 minutes on a 1300mAh and as you know it should take about 4 hours. This is my second go around through two different vendors and same problem, except 1st vendor was reputable and now this second vendor is not so I'm stuck with two 1300's that won't fully charge, might as well got 650 mah bats. Hadn't occurred to me until know and seeing you are really darn talented with these things would you happen to know anything about this charging issue with these Visions? Please don't suggest pin push, I don't think you would but someone at the shop where I got these batteries tried to tell me that's what I did to the battery and it's customer abuse, LOL, so no refund, I guess he didn't hear the rest of what I said, it charges for about 40 minutes, OK now lets talk about pin push?? Just scanning around for a solution and saw your smiley face and ah ha I thought maybe SteelJan will know?????????????

Interestedsomewhat: I just dropped a brand new Vision twist on the twist end and now it won't work/light up/function at all. Do you think it's toast?

Angel Gil: how nice video you have done..

malman1080: Excuse me for the unrelated question, but have you considered building a dna20/dna30 mod? 

Erick Wilczynski: I have a question about the wires attached to the metal at the top. I have a couple of spinners that I need reattach the wires to the top and it looks like one at the very top was glued in. Do you know how to fix this? Maybe we can pm and I can send you some photos of my problems. Also I have a ego-c knock off that I bought and it worked fine for one charge cycle but now it doesn't charge. I was hoping you may have some thoughts on that as well. Cheers!

Kc Lanuza: I have an ego-c twist and it blinks around 12 times.. i recharged it and it still does the same. Does it mean its broken? D:

godgivesbelovedoak: Omg your sexy. I love a smart woman. I don't care your twice my age. Will u merry me?

RemixLabz: Really good job SteelJan, pure skills! :D My wire from this part also plucked off...and I got EGO model with display with puff counter, so it was real pain in the ass to fix this... It's practically impossible to put back original rubber from this part so I've made new one from an old CE5 clearomizer vent rubber. Also if you're going to rebuild this you should cut down red wire for about 4-5mm, because once you pull it out it is very hard to fit it in the case again... Also be careful with soldering these parts, it has to be perfect and fit right! Battery button part is also tricky, press it down on the board while putting back in case... Good luck! :) Greets from Serbia

recifemedia: Wow, Im a German, and I see a Women, with great Talent for makes a good Job! 

Matthew Wolberg: Neesh...ok got it...potentiometer has a stop...silver diod. Its zero'd on both dial and meter...now to align it!

Luke Palmer: man, i wish u were my grandma

James Bond: Hey, great work. I'm considering doing a modification to the Clearomiser (This is the top part to the spinner) With me using your tutorial it doesn't seem like it should be a problem. I'm wanting to apply some Micro L.E.D's into the Clearomiser. I've worked out the potentiometer isn't greatly out of sink with the dials so it's simple maths for resistance but I'm having a problem doing the simple thing of getting the top of the spinner case open like you have. I don't want to damage it so I'm not going at it with pliers. Could you give me a heads up on what you did to open it. Thanks for you're time. James.

Tytanium: Impressive , great video and repair :) .. I am currently attempting to fix an old ego battery that I have from an ego-t that I had a couple of years ago that is going to require a fair bit of soldering as every wire came free when it separated in my pocket. I would like to use it as a back up but the only problem is that one of the tabs on the lithium battery broke and I would like to just solder a wire where the tab was but solder does not seem to stick even with flux even tho it is a metal contact . Would you have any tips ?. I think it would be easier for me if I could get the whole battery out of the tube but it has the usb passthrough on the bottom and I am only able to take the 510 connector side off and cannot get the lithium battery to move at all in the tube.. Hopefully I have made sense with what I am describing . I have a twist and I love it and I know that I could just buy another battery but I love repairing things when they stop functioning . PS .. I know the battery itself is still fine it is just the connections that need to be made. Thanks, -Ty

Chris McKenna: Great Job!

Fernando Lara: amazing video thank you. but i have one question my problem seems to be both the positive and negative wires being unsoldered the longer red one is still attached up top but theres also a yellow wire that i can't seem to find where to solder to. any help?? :( 

Wayne Punter: Brilliant quality video and great walk through. Many thanks for a really useful video :-)

top40productions: This is the second or third video I've seen of yours, you are incredibly patient and talented, I've been repairing and wiring since I was a kid, I know how difficult these micro boards and close tolerances are, fantastic job, you are my new YouTube hero :) 

Ben Figueroa: I need to have mine repaired I'll pay

Doug Huyler: Hey Steeljan you might be interested in this video about my ego twist

kelvin Tejeda: can you help me with my ego twist?

overhilliffy: CHEAPER!!!Just bought one form here it was cheaper and its sick. its were i get mine http://www.ebay.com/itm/251364213489?var=&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 

Dave Smith: This is a great video on how to repair the switch on an eGo-C Twist.

EddieTreat: The homemade button looks better then the factory one if you ask me, I can't wait to buy one, break it, and fix it like you did. Great work.

Ron Quiroga: i had almost the same thing happen to me. the button fell apart, but the wires came lose. i re solder (sp) it all back up. button lit and worded 5 clicks on np but it would not fire the atomizer. any tips on why its not working?

Randy Raudenbush: Hi,Do you want my broken spinner batteries, I swear they have a months use on them.. well twist and spinners.. I'm not buying anymore.. If it will help you I'll let you have them. I never threw them away because there is no way they are bad. Just broken wires is all. I soldered one back to together and I suck at fixing them,lol

antares37: I have to ego ce4 battery's that I believe are shortend...is there a way to fix that? They're only 3 weeks old and the lights are still blinking but I can't charge them and when I try to use them they start blinking like when they need a recharge. When I connect them to the charger, the charger light stays green (should be red if the batterys were empty)

TrainerCTZ: I've heard about you! Great job Peace!

Larry Gallo Jr: Would you happen. To have the circuit board from a ego twist with a good button. The button in mine is completely gone. I'll pay.

MantisFang: Nice job!

nnthepirate: It'll work. I wouldnt charge it with the eGo charger tho-- if nothing else it'll take dang near forever. It might trip your protection on the cells too.

steeljan: Don't tempt me! LOL!

Johnny Chingon: Omg you are seriously talented!! Awesome videos.

synnuh: Thanks a lot for the video. I watched it hoping I'd get a chance to see the other end, so I can figure out whether or not I could use the Twist guts on a VMod to make it VV. I'm gonna subscribe for more videos! :)

jimmie302: im having the same problem mines only a day old did u find an answer by any chance ?

Jdm Civic: Hello.. I got a ego c twist everytime I connect the tank the light blinks 3 times and everytime I click on it to heat up it does the same it just keeps on blinking 3 times when I click it and does not heat the oil.. what can that be? Any answers plz

Bernie O: I love to see you take things apart and put back again,Iam new to vaping three weeks no smoke Thanks Bernie

Alfonso E. Herdocia: It could be the wall sockets if your house is an older one. If it's a USB just try to plug into a computer, laptop, tower, ect. If worst comes to worst try to buy another charger for around $5-7. You could repair the battery for a bit of a price but I'd buy an entire new battery. Around $18-70. (:

steeljan: Dont' tell anyone, but I actually prefer my home made button, it's smooth, making it easier to press. ;-) Thanks!

iPhpwn4: Epic! Love your work.

willieBB123: im so glad your back , just remember we love you and we have your back.....willie

steeljan: Hugs Buzz, thanks!

andy Lake: great little vid.I watched this to find the answer to a similar question: I have a vision spinner and it is coming to the end of it's life cycle Can i replace the internal battery?.

ckrobh7: are all the wires disconnected? there should be four. Three running to the board from the battery and one from the board to the head. I haven't completely disassembled mine but the three wires from the battery broke and I had to resolder them. Red goes to V black goes to G and the wire running outside of the battery either black or yellow runs to the middle under the chip on board. watch the video again. As for the fourth wire I didnt have to go that far, so I'm not sure :D

guruaccount: Nice video !! ;)

Alana Friedhaber: can I send you my vision spinner and money to fix for me. I really need it fixed and I don't have enough money for a new one.

Mannek inPiss: but how to OPEN schiiiiit!

diesel305454: Great video! Great job!

canonikon: It's the two wire from the head to the circuit, i soldered it back together. thanks
