    So I've got an rDNA40 from the second batch of small screens... Would any of you be confident In doing a chip replacement?

    I think (after talking to Rob @ StealthVape) that the chip is over volting the screen which has gradually killed the pixels.

    The screen is now useless.. Totally blank.

    As said above I think vaporshark will be you're best bet,as they modify evolv's chips adding on their own fire buttons which increases the length of the chip so it's not a straight swap unfortunately,sorry mate

    That's what put me off doing it myself gscott1979 having to desolder the VS board from the DNA board.. I'm not sure I won't feck it up.

    I believe VS give four months warranty and it's past that now

    It's still usable in VW mode but I've no idea what wattage I'm vaping at... I wonder how much VS would charge to replace the chip.. Hmm..

    I emailed them yesterday about a query with an rDNA 30 and they were very quick to respond. I'd give them a shout if I were you - it can't hurt. support@vaporshark.com

    Wayne Socrates Stone I've referred everyone to him who's needed DNA work.

    If you look on stealthvapes website he also refers direct to Wayne ;)

    That's a bit of a bummer, I only took to YouTube to research a fixing the rDNA incase my chip ever failed mine ever failed,it's the second batch v2 I have which are less susceptible to that type of problem,hope you get it sorted mate

    The guy Huggett suggested has quoted £80 which includes a new chip... That sounds fair to me... That's about £30 for doing the job.
