I'm having problems with my nokio. first day using it and into the 2nd game, the hopper shuts off on me and won't turn on. everytime i press the button, it quickly blinks red. it will only turn on and stay green when im not playing and off the field ONCE in awhile. but when i leave it on it turns off on me in about 2 minutes. No matter how many times i press the power button, it doesn't want to turn on, only when it wants to. I also replaced the batteries. what could be wrong?

Have you taken it apart to see if there's a lose electrical connection? Have you tried fresh batteries?

yeah i bought brand new batteries from the field when after I was done with the match. unless the 2/3 are duds but i highly doubt that. I haven't opened it yet but it looks like everything in there looks solid. I will open it later tonight after I get off of work.

Thank you

You might have to re-solder some connections, but I don't know for sure since you have it and not me. But it's possible the field sold you some dud batteries.

open the battery door and pull the battery connections slightly towards where the batteries go (bend them only a little).  Sometimes with this type of connections the terminals can get flattened out and not make a constant connection with the battery.  Happens a lot with later model egos.  Might be why it has trouble staying on while you're playing and not while its sitting.

@tk-421
I just opened up the nokio and found that the ground wire to the motor was pinched so i was thinking of cut, strip, resolder, and heat shrink it.

@etekgirl

I will try that also! We will see on the weekend when i go out and play a few games

I'd try Etek's idea first, since it's simpler and just might be the fix you need.

Always best to try the simple fixes first. Glad it seems like it did the trick, give us a report when you play with it on the weekend. :tup:
