Will only run for 2or3 sec. then shuts down. power
the problem belive it or not is a simple fix...if u are electronic minded,,
you need to remove the collection pot / and the battery ..
now where the serial number is are 2 screws bellow remove them..
open it up behind is a pcb board,, now.. there is a security screw on the pcb ,, take that out also take both digital motor cable out pull up ,,,the red one that is..
then there is a white plug pull that off as well..
now take the pcb board out carefully as there is a long board that goes directly up into a hole in the top ..as u pull it down u will see,, now this is the bit we want right at the very top of that board is a surface mount transistor,, 3 legs,,
now we need to totaly remove this,,, i used solder braid,, to remove,, now throw it away this is the problem..
now where the transistor was is like this a,b,c
now 'A' being right at the top of long board looking at the board and 'B' being to left and 'C' being to the right with long board facing up....
NOW SOLDER 'A' & 'C' TOGETHER WITH A FINE PIECE OF WIRE,,
this is a simple trick comfuses the epprom into thinking the filter is on,,
as there is a little magent in the filter area big blue one that protects the motor,,,, now then , u must always clean the filter,,, dont forget,, as this little transistor goes faulty for some unknown reason,, must be a cheap magnetic nand gate switching transistors... this will get it working spot on i know as i have fixed loads..... found this out a few days ago after buyng 2 off ebay,, and took me allday to find the fault after replacing parts eventually i found this little guy was causing all the trouble..this will fix all these faults bellow,
1.) WORKS FOR 10 SECONDS THEN GOES OFF,,(also make shure your charger is giving out 28volts with a avo meter) and battery is charged for around 3 hrs fully ...
2.)FLASHING RED L.E.D (100% FIX) as this is filter cannot be detected..
reason it will work for a while is faulty transistor ,,,reads then 10 seconds later wont,,,epprom goes into fault mode take a while for it to reset,
I HOPE THIS HELPS SOME PEOPLE AND SAVES THEM 60£ FOR THE COMPLETE SHELL AT DYSON.. A 20MINUTE JOB WILL SAVE U A FORTUNE.. AND IF U HAVE THESE LYING AROUND U CAN NOW GET THEM BACK UP AND RUNNING WITH THIS SIMPLE FIX..
best reguards lee,,
