Help!
Fatshark Dominator V2 white screen?

I just went to fly my F450 FPV, and All I'm seeing is white / grey solid screen through my Fatshark Dominators V2 ?

I'm using a external ImmersionRC Duo V4 , and external lipo to power both

I have 2 lipo's , one to power the receiver, and one to power the goggles both exteral

I'm using CH 5780MHz on the receiver, but I can't figure out how to match the CH on the ImmersionRC Duo V4 ?

I have NO internal receiver in the goggles, as I'm using a ground station



I have flipped the switch on the goggles and it made no difference internal or external RX

Sounds like a messed up LCD driver. The only way to fix this is to send your goggles to Fat Shark repair service.

I know it sucks. I would be unhappy too. But the good news is that you will have it back soon. Fat Shark's repair service is excellent and very fast.

Did it never work, or did it just die after a few uses?

Bad LCD driver out of the box. I just bought them 3 weeks ago, and went to power them up for the first time

Fatshark was quick to respond with emails and support.

Their referring me back to where I bought them

I hope they said return it to the dealer for a replacement and not to them for repair. New out of the box and dead?

I've been looking at the Dominator V2 also and this gives me second thoughts.

Fatshark just emailed me again, and said to send it into them, it has a bad LCD driver

If you google LCD driver Fatshark goggles, it comes up allot on all their goggles, not just the Dominator V2 one's

I sent them a email 2 hours ago, and after some testing , connecting to a DVD player, etc, they are going to have me send them directly to them

I don't know if they will repair them or give me new ones

Did the set look new when you received it or did it have any hint of being repackaged? I see a lot of negative reviews for that Ebay dealer complaining of defective items looking repackaged. I was looking at some good deals from them on Blade 350QX2's and had second thoughts after seeing the comments.

They have a huge amount of feedback, but their score is still in the high 90's for their feedback

They also have a website , which I've bought stuff from also

I just read someone bought them from Horizen Hobby and had the same problems, bad LCD driver

No, it wasn't repackaged, it was un-opended

Well that's not encouraging. No, I would want a refund from the dealer and not deal with getting brand new goggles fixed, but that's just me.

That is not encouraging.

I bought from that dealer also, but not really high $$$ items. At least they didn't send you a repackage. It also does not say much for FatShark's quality control.

Yes I agree, It took me a while to finish my ground station. So their 6 weeks old now, so even though I just powered them up for the first time, Their refund policy states 30 days

I did email them though. But I got a quicker response from Fatshark

It seem's to be an apperant problem

Fatsharks response was they test them for 4 hours before sending them out

I didn't see that happening in this case, first time powered up and bad LCD drivers

I just read another thread the guy's goggles LCD driver went bad 13 months later, and couldn't find a replacement driver

Had to send them into Fatshark

My favorite ground station configuration is in my basement using my projector and 80" screen for local around the neighborhood FPV. I wish I could get that working in a mobile setup. Nice full immersion effect.

I was hoping the Dominator V2 would fit that bill. It's a dice toss sometimes, and sometimes you have to chance it and roll a hard six!
