    Hi guys. I don't know if I've put this post in the right sub forum so apologies in advance. I don't know if you guys can help but the screen on my wismec sinuous p80 does not turn on. The mod still works and when I broadcast screen shooter in nfe tools it displays the screen there, but the screen on the mod still doesn't turn on.

    I feel this is the same issue as the rx2/3 and rx300 screen issues. I have purchased it about a month ago in an attempt to quit smoking and start vaping. I can still use the device but no screen is kind of annoying and I would like to fix it.

    Just thought id post it on here to see if you guys have ever encountered the same problem.

    On the other hand, as soon as I received it I flashed Arctic fox and it runs like a dream bar the blank screen issue.

    I can post a video or even a photo detailing the issue.

    Cheers
    Justin

    Ok so that's a little weird. I plugged it into charge and the screen lit up! But I've just tried it again with it still plugged into charge and the screen didn't light up again.

    I might try flashing stock firmware just to confirm its still working and that its not an intermittent fault.

    I see this as an opportunity to get another small mod for a backup. Looking closely at the primo se

    What happens if you push the fire-button only shortly? Will the display backup? Maybe you have stealth enabled, does the screen turn on if you insert a battery and then turns dark?

    Before this issue occured the screen would scramble, but a simple on off cycle would fix the issue. With a battery inserted, the screen would power up again, taking the tank off the 510 connector would also rectify the situation.

    I have quickly flicked through the pages of this sub forum and found a few other ppl having issues with their screens. I will adjust the brightness to a much lower level to see if that fixed the problem.

    Other than that the sinuous is a really good sturdy little unit. Thanks

    So I think I figured out the issue. Screen works when the temp on the display is under 32degC. Board temp once it goes to 33degC it starts glitching, leading me to believe it's a temperature issue. Any ideas of how to fix it?

    How many blissful revelations
    The spirit of enlightment hides!
    And then experience born of lapses
    And genius antinomy-wise
    And chance, the heavenly inventor...
