So my egg 3 stopped working today and I cant figure out whats wrong with it. I put brand new batteries in it but it still does not work. Anyone have any suggestions on what i can try to do to fix it?

Did you check to see if the battery wire harness was still conected to the board? Check that first. Chances are thats probably all that happened.

does your switch still feel solid or does it feel funny when you flip it back and forth? if it feels funny then your switch may have went on it. Its bin so long since I used my eggy but make sure the eyes are clean to. If they are dirty then it wont let the propeller spin because it detects the stack is full. So ensure that the eyes are clean especialy if you were getting breaks up the feedneck.

The switch is good but now that im looking at the board closer it looks like i may have melted a little bit of it. I dont know how but it looks that way

Yeah, maybe its just time for a new loader even though iv only played with it like 5 times for about 7 hours at a time. Ill just take it in to the local shop and have them look at it first. Thanks though

Find the nearest Viewloader warranty outlet and they should fix it for free if it's not your fault and it's still under warranty. Go to the VL website and search one out. Only thing that goes on mine is teh battery door. If it cracks and doesn't push the batteries down like it should it won't work. AMOF that's what's wrong with it right now. A have a Fasta so I prolly won't fix it since there's really no immediate need to -

Well the store i bought it at let me return it even though iv had it for like 6 month so its all good now. Im probably going to get a Reloader B now.
