    I picked up my provari today and it would not fire my carto tank. I have only owned it for a couple of weeks so I'm new to this. I made sure it was on then proceeded to the ohms reading and it had an LO showing. I assumed the carto was bad so I drained my tank and punched a carto and refilled. I tried to fire the new carto and it would not fire. It was showing the same LO reading. I tried to remain calm and proceeded to put on three vivi novas and another cartomizer with the same resuls. The battery was reading 4.0 but I decided to put a fresh one in anyways and it is now working fine. I briefly searched the forum for this issue and I have found some posts with different feed back. What happened? I guess I need to download to Provari user manual from home because for some reason I cant access it from work.

    "LO" stands for "LED On" function.
    I assume you were checking resistance by selecting "AO", atomizer Ohm, function?
    All error codes started with "E" followed by the number.

    Glad new battery solved the problem.

    Edit: are both batteries IMR and the same? With flat top?

    It is possible that you had the button held intermittantly and that the provari was cycling through its menu; it just happened to be on the Lo menu option when you stopped to look at it. I have had this happen to me before when I don't fully press the fire button.

    If your coil (or whatever delivery system) is too low Ω it will say LO, where as Lo is as you mentioned the LED Off feature.

    Everything on the main menu is Capitol followed by lowercase, where as a low ohm reading blasts both capitol letters.

    Well, you can also make a nipple top of a flat top battery. You just need a needle to pull the nipple up as it's pressed down (there are four holes to work with). This's a last resort solution, of course.

    I think it was in capitals LO. Bu I havent had that problem since I changed the AW IMR battery. I was freeking out! Every tank or carto I put on was saying LO. I assumed it was off later on, but was in such a panic it was all a blur. Looking inside the Provari the metal contact isen't a perfect smooth, shiney metal button. It kinda looks like a chrome covered metal piece where the chrome is comming off. Hard to describe. It's not smooth and perfect. Kinda layered texture to it. Not what I would expect in a Provari. I have only had it for 3 weeks, could it need cleaned already?
