Well I failed at this. I'll post pictures, but either I had a faulty wire or the wrong battery but after finishing I could get no power. The V3 still works, so I didn't fry anything. Love that giant heavy V3!
this is definitely not normal

Have a look here. What have I done wrong, potentially, that makes this not work? Is it possible that my cable has just gone bad? Here's the battery and the soldered connection, but I get no power to the V3.

probably stupid questions, but have you used a voltmeter to a) confirm the battery is providing power and b) confirm that the sled is receiving power from the battery (You could tap the soldier joints with the voltmeter probes).  If so, confirm that the cable connector (that plugs into the V3) is getting power and that polarity is not reversed.

From the best I can tell it's wired up correctly assuming the blk wire with white stripe is in fact the positive. Here's another vote for using a volt meter. You'd have your answer in a minute.

Another stupid question - Is the V3 a 6v or 12v and have you verified it is set to 6v?

If the V3 has been set to operate at 12v it will not turn on if the voltage is less then about 10v or so (maybe in the 9.5v range) - there is a procedure on how to change the voltage setting (used to be posted on the Grace website)

Duh. didn't think of that Richard. Yep, so look at your old dvd battery and see what voltage it's set on. If it's set on 12v then these are the instructions to change it.

I love this place!
I have 2 DVD batteries and regularly swap them between the V3 and R44, so I guess I'd better learn some more stuff!
This as my attempt at trying something new... guess I learned the old fashioned way! At least I have not yet fried my V3!
