FL8 problem

5 posts in this topic

Friday I was out fishing, when all of a sudden, my Vex started rattling and the "flashers" went out. Is this something an average "joe" can tackle, or should it get sent in?

This is something that you would have to take in. Don't foil any chance of voiding the warrenty if it still has one by opening it up.

Does this Vex have a lot of hours on it?

Your brushes may have gone out. Vex sells a brush kit, but if you are not proficient in soldering small items, it is best left to the factory.

Im guessing its the brushes in it and they have gone bad. Like Gissert said, you have 2 options; 1) get a brush kit and fit it yourself. 2) send it in and get it fixed or find some one to fix it for you.

BTW Did you atleast catch any fish while you were out fishing? smile.gif

Thanks, guys!
I'm a nail-bender, most things with wires and cicuits render me baasically impaired so I think I'll send 'er in.

    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
