    That's the same issue my first one had that this thread is about. It is truly not normal and twisting it should never tighten it down like that. Received my replacement one yesterday and I can spin it all day and it never gets tight. I would get a replacement like I did!

    I have an SVD and have had it for a couple of weeks now. It performs flawlessly for me. I did try rotating the firing button (mine is smoked plastic in color so the LCD lights shine through it). I was able to get the button to spin freely in both directions, but I never got it to stop or lock. I clicked it off and tried pressing the button like I was firing it and then twisting it, but still didn't get the button to tighten. I would really recommend sending it back as it sounds like you've got a connection that is not fitted properly and needs to be addressed by the manufacturer.

    I have a similar problem. I got mine two weeks ago from MVS and this weekend the button got all weird, shutting off on its own firing on its own, and sticking. The firing on its own freaked me out the most. Just sitting on my desk and the green light came on and I can hear my carto hissing. The bummer is MVS is in the middle of a move so who knows when i will get a reply to my email about the return.

    It sounds like the hole for the button is too tight and is rubbing against the plastic of the button , I would put a few drops of silicone or soy oil around the button ,
    wait until it get's in and press the button to make sure it get's lubricated. Repeat every month and that should keep it working fine.
    Off course you can retunr it but then you have to pay for shipping and such so it's worth trying .

    Mine had firing issues and it's the carto. So basically on mine it's got the pin set a hair of a mm too low or something like that. I'm not happy about it but it's not worth exchanging because different cartos fit differently and all it takes is an extremely minor distance.

    Yes, My svd fire button has the same problem..when you press it down and spin either way it gets locked up and keep firing I just maintain it at the "neutral" position that way it has no problems..aint sending it back for repair..not worth it...Thanks to this thread it helped me...I thought my svd got screwed after 14 days...but after reading this thread i tried spinning it back...and yes...the button came loose and the clickyness came back....thanks again and I will try the silicone oil thing to see if it works or not....Lucky did not throw away the svd before i read this thread...thanks all...

    Just checked mine. It didn't get stuck but boy is it tighter. In other words it fees like it has very little travel and the clicky sound is completely gone.
    Mind you this is my original SVD which isn't from fasttech. My fasttech ones are built different to this (not as well in my opinion) and they don't do it at all.

    edit: Okay played with it for about two minutes and it was so touchy that I played with it til I got it back to where it was. Back to it's clicky self. With some rotation it seems to have an instant activation with no sound. I like it but it worries me so click click it is.

    I have tried to do this to mine as well. Mine does not tighten up...just keeps spinning no matter which way you turn it.

    Got mine worked fine for 2 weeks then one night it did the same thing button down no return tried the turning and does not chance still stays down. I will attempt to return it. Seems to turn freely so don't think plastic and s.s. ring are the problem.

    They are 40 bucks and have a garbage switch/button. Bound to happen sadly.

    Please let me know how this exchange panned out. I have the same mod & am having similar issues w/ fire button. Unfortunately, mine is about 6 weeks in, hence no longer returnable.

    Cleaning w/ rubbing alcohol seems to have helped a bit...along with a lot of playing with the button. I do find that when the button is rotated to either extreme, the problem is MUCH worse.

    Trying to iron it out. Otherwise, I'm quite happy w/ the mod...but this is a problem w/ THE essential function.

    My fire button broke a while back and i think that innokin should recall all the svd's it will only be a matter of time before those cheap little tack switch's fail.

    Had my SVD for about a month & a half & the firing button got stuck halfway down. Now I barely hover my thumb over it & it fires. Definitely turned me off to any other Innokin products.

    Sorry to hear so many people having problems with their SVD.
    Mine works just fine, but I didn't get it from fasttech.

    Are all of the reported problems with SVDs purchased from FastTech? I'm about to pull the trigger on one and don't want to buy something that's gonna crap out on me.
