See SnowDragon's video here in the stickies. He fully explains many related questions regarding cartomizers.
I had a carto that did not work right out of the box. I tried the paper clip business to raise the post but that did not work. What DID work was to turn the carto post ccw a little bit just as th OP said. Not everything works in every case.
Thanks for that info, I am going to try that.
Very useful, gotta try it!
I have several boxes of carts that don't seem to work at all. Unfortunately, I don't know what you mean by the "round connector." Can you please describe what I am looking for? Is it on the outside of the cart?
I'm not sure who you are addressing Oldlady, but if you're talking about the post on the carto, then yes it is on the outside of the carto. The center piece inside the end of the carto that goes on the battery (not the mouthpiece end).
I believe that thread was deleted. Not knowing what issue you are having I don't know which video to point you towards. So here's the YouTube channel you want to look at. The titles and video info do a good job of describing what each one is about.

Hopefully that link works. If not, the channel name is TeamKR808. Let us know if you have specific questions and we would be happy to help Best of luck!
These cartos shouldn't come non-working. I've never seen a company have such non-working overpriced duds (crap)
Why should we have to figure out how to fix the cartos ourselves to get them to work? nonsense.
what a crock
