Thread: Anyone on the forums that can support/fix my POB?

  1. #1

    Help Anyone on the forums that can support/fix my POB?

    I've tried fixing my POB myself. I bought some new bulbs and checked connections, but that's about the limit of my electrical/light knowledge. Just wondering if there is anyone on the forum (and in USA) that I could ship my light to so they can take a look at it and possibly fix it at a reasonable cost (I paid about $75 for the light).

    My battery status lights light up. I can get all 4 to light. The HID doesn't turn on though and I don't hear any noises at all of it trying to turn on.

    If I can't get this thing fixed I'll probably just throw it away and save up for an L35 (which I planned on doing anyways). Would hate to lose a light though, especially one as fun as this one has been.

    Thanks
    Stephen

    The problem is that you're probably going to spend $40.00 in two-way shipping just to get it to a destination and back. Let's assume a ballast has failed. There's probably another $30.00 or more spent. You'd be better off spending the money towards the L35 or spending the same amount replacing your POB and have some spare parts to boot. You could also consider the new N30's. If you lived near me, I'd look at it for nothing.
