    Angry It's dead Jim!


    Doh!

    Dropped my V1 this morning in the parking lot..

    It was already on the fritz but this seems to have finished it off... the Laser warning is just going off continuously...

    I may try to open it up and fix it, if it is what I think it is, I may get lucky..

    If not it isn't going to get replaced terribly soon.

    Sometimes I want to drop you headfirst onto the ground from roughly waist height...

    It's dead Jim!

    It's 6 years old so whatever...

    Yes the effort to mail it back is annoying though.

    I don't really think they are going to fix it, they're going to make it worthwhile for me to just buy a new one.

    I had already called as it's on the fritz and they said it'd probably be better to just get a new one, it is a known defect in the design that has been corrected for a long time now.

    If you throw it out I'll take it.

    Type in your serial number on their web site to see its trade in/up value.

    I found out my ancient one is $200 to get a new one.
    That and the WHOLE K band section isn't working. No visual warning that circuits' not there to "save me".
