    I have a dicodes No.6 and can't tell if the device has a busted screen or if its just in stealth mode. Anyone know how to get it out of stealth mode?

    Cheers, can't make sense of the manual.

    Press button 3 times?? Sorry, don't have the mod, but that is all I could decipher for you.

    With the iStick Pico it is apparently just holding - button and power button at the same time.

    Try 5 clicks off. If you see the “goodbye...” then the screen is working.
    5 clicks back on and it should be out of stealth mode.

    No matter which combination of buttons or amount of times I press the buttons. The screen stays dark. The mod does however fire and lock.

    It was just an attempt at a refurb. I've got other mods. But to ditch a €200 euro mod without giving it my all is just criminal.

    Thanks mate but I can't find what I need online. I need someone with experience.

    Check what other screens might fit. Screens are all the same. It's the ribbon that makes it different.

    I read they explained how the mod works hence me posting it. Sorry if it didn't work.

    I don't believe they did. Not even the manual explains it clearly. I think it's down to a pinched ribbon wire or a failed screen :(

    There's a Facebook group if you do Facebook. Other than that. Sorry I read wrong.

    Have you tried reseating the ribbon cable?
    Almost certain its not in stealth mode if you dont get the hello/goodbye messages.
    I had a look through the manual and it says nothing about stealth mode, even though the cremedevape site mentions stealth mode.
    They also sell a BF60 spare screen for 8 GBP
    https://www.cremedevape.com/epages/...tPath=/Shops/yxve46fvrnud/Products/DICODES-53

    I'd first push button combinations before opening it up again.
    If no luck, then remove the ribbon cable from the board and wipe with alcohol on an ear bud.

    I have tried reseating both ribbons inside the mod. I haven't yet tried cleaning with alcohol. Sadly that screen is not the same as the one in the mod. Its a big square screen. But I've contacted dicodes for advice. I'll do the alcohol clean tomorrow and report back.

    Are these ribbons proprietary or can replacements be found locally?

    Nope, made in a subsidiary of dicodes, so basically inhouse.
    You could probably check the ribbon for conductivity end to end with a meter.
