M-I6 Turns off

Post by shaggybfc » Sun Apr 28, 2019 6:20 pm

Hi all,
Has anyone had it where the PP turns itself off straight after turning on? It's definitely fully charged - done a good 3 hours and get the light sequence to indicate it. It's only 5 months old.is this a fault or is it user error?
Thanks for any advice.

They told me I’d never be any good at poetry, because I’m dyslexic, but so far I’ve made 3 jugs and a vase.

Hi
Nothing worse than knowing something should work and it dosnt.
Not using an XP, but remembered seeing a good article in Feb 2018 edition of The Searcher.
This shot was part of it, the article appears better than the original instructions and just thought it may help.
Good luck with the problem - hope it works soon.
🙂👍

Thanks for that Bootneck.
I've spoken with Marcus as Regton's today, he thinks that it's not operator error and sounds like the probe has failed. I'll be taking it back to them on Friday for a review.

All fixed. It was potentially a faulty board. Huge shout out to Nigel and the team at Regtons for doing the work whilst I waited. Great business to deal with, great customer service ::g
