HF coil turning off and on with version 5

Post by harv707 » Tue Sep 11, 2018 8:06 pm

Hello,
Not sure if others have had the same problem but I recently had my Ws4 and black coil updated to version 5. Did not update the hf coil as consensus was the hf coil did not need updating.
Black 9 inch coil works a treat with no issues, tones are harsher but little price to pay for the extra functions. However the hf elliptical coil is unusable. It turns on fine then loses the connection then reboots and losses connection again soon after.
I have reinstalled the coil several times and even kept coil plugged in when testing but still suffers from signal dropout.
Worked spot on with 4.1 but would rather stay with v5 if I can.
Have others had this problem? Should I update again and include hf coil in update?
Would be interested to hear others opinion. Thanks

My hf coil had a faulty battery and would not pair, or did but took 3-4 attempts. Was on v4. Now updated all gear to v5 and new battery And it’s fine. I preferred v4 as I’ve not found a hammy on v5 😩😭

You can’t update the HF coils - they are on different software to the black coils.

Harv707 are you on v5 or v5.1? I am on v5 and the HF coil is generally working fine although it sometimes stutters to restart when i switch the Mi6 off. I need to move to v5.1 to sort that but I just haven’t done it yet.

Hi oxgirl.
Running v5, not updated to version 5.1 as don't have the pinpointer.
Black coil works fine but hf coil unusable. Not sure what will sort the problem out unless I revert to v4 again.
You would have thought that the hf coil would work fine considering as you said the different software it has

Regtons did mine and said v5 is more stable than v5.1

Maybe try reverting back to v4.1 and see if that fixes it then? I would be very upset if the hf coil wasn’t working. If that doesn’t work then I’d call Regtons and get their advice.

I hope that works OK ::g

Many thanks oxgirl. Will get detecnicks to revert me back to v4.1 and see how it goes. Shame to lose all the extras v5 has to offer

Many thanks Klondyke. Updating to v5.2 tomorrow courtesy of Detecnicks so hopefully that will sort the issue out.
Emailed Xp who said the V5.2 should sort out the problem as it was developed to address connectivity issues. Fingers crossed 🤞
