    Default EGO C Twist blinking 3 times

    Hey everyone, just had a quick question. My ego C Twist blinks 3 times every time I press the button. It is charged, and I even charged it over night to be sure. I'm not sure what the issue is, it wasn't dropped or anything. Just started doing this. I tried to turn it off the one time and it blinked I don't know how many times, more than 10 though. Anyone have any advice on this? I'm confused what is going on. I have tried 4 or 5 different cartos/tanks with no luck!


    Thanks guys!

    3 blinks = short (too low ohms).

    Clean the threads inside the connection and see if that helps. Also, if that doesn't work, use a paperclip or some-such and try to pry the center post up a little bit...GENTLY. Don't rip the little rubber grommet that separates the center post from the threads.

    That is weird. I have also used different ohms.. One is 2.4-29. Also, I have used the same carto for weeks on it and it has worked. I did try to pry it up a bit with no luck!

    Did you clean it inside the connector (maybe it's shorted with gunk?)

    I only mentioned the pry thing since some have indicated that certain tanks/cartos may push the center pin down too far and it shorts INSIDE.....

    So if you don't have an tank/atty/carto on it.... and push the button...what happens?

    EDIT: BTW... a short is basically zero ohms...

    Ok so here is how it goes:
    I screw the cartomizer on: 3 blinks
    I press the button with the cartomizer on: 3 blinks
    I take off the carto: Nothing happens
    I press the button with no carto on: Nothing happens
    I push the center pit side to try to move it up a bit: 3 blinks

    Thanks for your help!

    I'm uncertain of what you mean by the last point...

    So are you saying that you push on the center pin and push the button and get 3 blinks? (And that you're not shorting it with a metal object)?

    It shouldn't blink when you just screw a carto on without the button pushed!

    Is the button stuck too?

    P.S. How old is it? Time for a new one?
    I only have a regular eGo...not a twist. So maybe they are different or something...I'll wait for someone else to chime in here........

    Do they do 3 blinks with the 5-click thing too Iffy?

    Sorry, when I use a paper clip to try and push up the center pin, it blinks. Not pushing the button or anything. It isn't that old, I got it at the end of August or so. Also, no, the button seems just fine! No 5 click on/off either. It doesn't matter.

    Try it with something plastic (non-conductive). Still blink?
