Thread: Swarovski z4i problem

  1. #1

    Swarovski z4i problem

    hi the illumination on my z4i is on the blink so to speak, it is only showing a very faint red dot with no adjustment. i put in a new battery about a month ago so its not a battery problem.
    does anyone know what the problem could be before i send it backto swarovski. thanks

    Hi,
    Providing the battery contacts are clean and the battery is in the right way I would personally try another battery. I have been caught out before by new batteries that have been flat.
    Hope you get it sorted.

    When you say "with no adjustment", do you mean that when you try and turn up the intensity, nothing happens and the red dot just stays faint?

    I have no idea how long the batteries last...I rarely turn it on and have only changed the battery once in 5 years and it was a second hand scope so no knowledge about the battery condition when I bought it.

    Certainly a new battery would be the simplest and cheapest first check to make.

    Any chance you could have left it on by mistake sometime over the month?

    If it is faulty I believe you would have to pay for Swaro to repair it as electrical isn't covered by there lifetime warranty

    but I could be wrong and they could just repair it FOC

    Send it of to swarovski for a service they may do it free of charge if not I doubt they will charge much.
