ES120 screw driver

by quilltrott on Wed Jan 13, 2021 5:29 pm

Got the ES120 as a gift.

Right out the box it would only turn a small fraction of a rotation then stop.
Charged for 7 hours. (Battery displayed as full)
Tried again got several rotation in the clockwise direction and then it would stop. Would then only do the small fraction of a rotation thing again.
The display also goes dark and will not turn back on unless plugged into a usb charger.
Tried updating Firmware. Followed directions that came with it. Plugged into several different PCs and it does not show up as removable flash drive. So I was unable to update firmware. I’ve used one of these before so I know how they should work.Please advise.

order number 2405997-4787079476

I know how to work it. I've used one that my friend has. This one is not performing anything like his. "it should just work"? I know it should but its not. It does show the screw icon but the motor still acts like I posted earlier.
