I need a favor. I have been trying to figure out the proper settings to get things to work for crystal pulse in idle mode, and blade mirror when it’s on. Can someone here set me up to do this and email me the file? I just want to see WTF I’m doing wrong because I’m not clueless about how this should work.
Ok guys I appreciate all the help. It sucks to get old as I don’t see as well as I once did ( not that I would have easily seen this anyway) but I finally found the issue. I went ahead and pulled part of the saber apart to access the whole board and there was a single strand of wire that somehow got onto the board into the accent led connection area. It was very hard to see but after using some extra magnification I found that it had wedged itself in there and caused a floating short across the accent connections. Once that short was resolved everything now works as normal.
All I can say is avoid getting old if you can, theres no future in it.

Just read this. Glad you got such a simple fix (but super annoying) figured out. I had a similar problem once with a thin strip of solder bridging my FoC and main LED making all my LEDs be lit all the time. I unfortunately stripped my board before seeing it since the wires hid it when installed. Ah the joys of this hobby.
