Hey guys,

I got my ASP saber ages ago from the kickstarter campaign and it's sat happily on my self ever since. I picked it up the other day to show some friends, but it wouldn't work. Looks like the wiring from the activation button has broken off enroute to the soundboard. I don't duel with or even handle it all that much at all.

Is this something repairable on my own? Should I contact SF for warranty repair?

Any advice would be great. Thanks!

I would contact Custom Service first and see what help they can give you. If it's under warranty or can be repaired they will help you.

I don't ever think I've ever seen a wire break exactly like that... a very clean break. The wire may have gotten brittle during the soldering process. Not a hard fix, but you'll probably want to go through the RMA process for a repair like Jas-Ot recommends; the v1 ASP electronics haven't had the best run, so having the warranty intact may be a life saver later on.

Assuming sf does not warranty it, strip the covering get some heat shrink braid them together and solder then cover with the heat shrink

Thanks for the tips, guys. Saber Forge recommended the RMA process as well so it's off for repairs.
