    I've cleaned all the exterior connections but it didn't help. Would cleaning the internal rail connections possibly fix the problem with bay #1 failing to charge?

    The answer is maybe, if the problem is due to bad connections it will, but if the reason is a damaged chip it will not (A reason for a damage chip may be a battery put in backward).
    Sorry, but I cannot give a definitive answer.

    I've never put a battery in backwards. If GB doesn't do anything, I will pull it apart and do some cleaning. I had three mc3000's but sold two to my friends. Should have kept at least one for backup.

    Gearbest has suggested to me to send it to their repair center in the US and pay for shipping to get it there. I live in Canada. Has anyone had good luck sending it to their repair center? I'm sort of reluctant to do that as they said if they can't repair it, they would send me a refurbished one. My experience with anything refurbished is "yeah bob, it works........next".

    Well, I had nothing to lose so I pulled mine apart and found that the soldering around the + terminal on the board of bay #1 was cracked and lifting on the edges. I've seen cracking like this before on my honda cars on the drl control unit board and needed to resolder them to get the drl's working again but, no such luck with the mc3000 as resoldering didn't change anything.




    For anyone disassembling there mc3000, the wires that run to the battery temp sensor can sneak up on you
    when putting it all back together like they did to me in the pic below. There is a plastic slot for each temp sensor
    wire where you need to route these to. It's not obvious at first upon disassembly but when you reassemble, as you
    can see in the pic, it's easy to have them snag.

    Heads up mc3Kers. Spare top housings are now being sold on eBay (USA) for $3.99 with free shipping. Get 'em while they last (from China).

    Btw, if you're in USA and you need anything else from China then be aware that Trump is killing ePacket, so it will likely no longer be possible to get dirt cheap shipping from China. So now is the time to stock up before the window closes. So long to cheap imported hobby parts. It was sure nice while it lasted.
