Vamo disassembly
I think some people have taken these apart. Any advice on how best to do it?

Mine is reading lo/0.0 on everything I fancy having a look inside it seeing whats going on with it.

RE: Vamo disassembly
Drop it on a tiled or hard wood floor should do the trick

It isn't easy to get the top off without marking it so be careful with the pipe wrench jaws.

RE: Vamo disassembly
link not working for me ???

wrap some tape around the top pf the mod above the screen and prise off gently with some jaws
can be a bit tight but it will pop off
one inside remove the half moon piece of plastic then the board should come out then the buttons

I assume you are using a fully charged known good battery?

RE: Vamo disassembly
I'm on my second Vamo now, the first I accidentally dropped, and like your's was reading 0.0 on everything, I took mine apart and all seemed okay, put it all back together and then I discovered what may be wrong with it. The small plastic washer on the center terminal had come loose and the unit was of course shorting, unfortunately I have not been able to get this washer back in place and so I had to purchase another unit.

RE: Vamo disassembly
Yeah that's it here too. I had problems with the center post slipping down, I pulled it up slightly with a pair of tweezers. Plastic washer came out, I thought I had reseated it properly, but after having a better look at it, its not quite in there, hence shorts.

I haven't opened it up yet. Couldn't you get the washer back in after opening the unit? that's a shame.
