    first i apologize for the typing, i have 6 working fingers and to lazy to make pretty.
    i'm new to the forum but have been vaping since njoy came to town.
    my current rigs are 18650 vamo clone and bolt mech, 26650 kingwin mech. fav rta is alpha one 24mm with 24g at .59 ohm.
    my newest and most troublesome wisemec predator 228. i'm getting the no atomizer found error and have flashed the ArticFox firmware still getting the error so i know it's the 510 connector. the firmware is exceptional by the way. i'm about to disassemble and solder the connection so...

    anyone know of a video showing the actual solder points? silver or 60/40 rosin core?

    want to be as prepared as possible as i can 'new and improve' or repair something into trash faster than you can read this.

    Sounds like pretty extreme measures. :shock:

    It may be something as simple as a depressed 510 center pin. If so, it has an easy fix.

    I don't own that equipment, so I will just welcome you to the forum. :)

    Welcome and glad you joined.
    First you have to determine if the problem is in the mod or topper. Could place the topper on an another mod and see if you get the same no atomizer error and get back to **me/others. My best guess:
    Simply unscrew your RDA positive *pin a quarter to a half turn counter clockwise to loosen. Try vaping, and if this does not work, then make or buy a new RDA center pin head insulated washer. Your "under the pin" head insulated washer is probably crushed ( causing a short) and needs replacement.

    *pin -- these pins typically have slot head screw surface available.
