    Default Help with my 2nd hand McGizmo!

    My McGizmo I bought from my old co-worker is cycling through brightness levels when clicked on, neither him or I know how to fix this. Any information pertaining to hidden features or controls would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance CPF!

    Hello, welcome to CPF! Sorry to hear of the issue your having. Which model McG is it you have? I do know that the 3s converter can get 'stuck' in hi mode when the battery is nearly deprecated. Have you tried a fresh one yet? And if all else fails, shoot an email to Don. I'm sure he would be able to 'shine' some light in the situation.

    I think that's the calibration mode. just click it on and let it cycle through it's calibrations until its done. then it should return to normal behavior.

    Yes, it is most likely in calibration mode, based on your description ....

    Start with a fresh battery, you should be fine. Mine did that once when I clicked it too many times.
