Default Victor Hi IQ

Has anyone found another source that repairs the Victor chargers? I did send an email to the Cadvision guy, but I am waiting to hear back.

Thanks in advance.

We've another person in Spain who repaired our Victors for more than 10 years. He's actually using a victor as a main charger. But sending to them, can be a 'little expensive'.

Stick with cadvision guy, sometimes is very busy, if at final you want to contact with the spanish guy, drop me a PM and I put in contact with the spanish guy.

Chin, good call. I'll bring it with me on Saturday and see what he can do with it.

Thanks for the idea.

Mark-- Model Land, in Calgary, Alberta, has a guy who fixes and can upgrade old Victors with modern software. Ask for Don Johnson and he will set you up. Remember, your Yanke buck goes a long way up here!!

Mini,

Curtis doesnt do anything anymore. It looks like I will be Canada-bound for this one.

Merry Christmas Mark. I saw your pics of the XXXs on the other thread...sweet! The number to Model Land is: 403 249 1661. Hope you get some help there. I've got to tell you that the set-up that is working for me on my XXXs is completely different than any that I've seen; Rubber on carpet-stock. If your interested get back to me...I'm always looking for set-up help!!

You as well. Thanks for the info.

All that matter is that you have the car working for you. As for what we run out west; the tracks are large, outdoors and on either concrete or parking lot. The good thing is by next year we will have an additional 3 new tracks in the area.

We never see carpet out west, unless we are at home watching tv.

Is Sam in Canada still servicing these chargers? The old website stated that he no longer is working on these chargers. I am also seeking service on my victor charger, any help would be great.
