Sena SMH-10 Weakness..

I managed to break one of the interconnect pins on my Sena SMH-10... I guess maybe I dropped it... Tried to solder it back together several times but it wouldn't stay together when I snapped it into the retainer...

So... I took a spring out of an ink pen and rewound myself a little spring around a finish nail...I slipped it over the remaining post and soldered it into place...A little trimming and bending and Voila !!! Fixed...

I figured I would have to buy a new unit anyway so I thought I had nothing to lose..

Mine did the same thing. I think they break from taking it out the cradle so much, I don't know. Mine was still under warrenty so Sena sent me a replacement.

Re: Sena SMH-10 Weakness..

Well Crap !

Mine is certainly still under warranty but I figured a broken pin would not be covered...
I have two different helmets so I change it around quite a bit... Being a little more careful now...

OH well....

Nice hack.

When a government takes over a people’s economic life it becomes absolute, and when it has become absolute it destroys the arts, the minds, the liberties and the meaning of the people it governs.

Re: Sena SMH-10 Weakness..

Thanks, cool idea. I had a pin break under warranty and they replaced it, but it's happened again, this time out of warranty. SENA says they don't offer a repair service, so I'm going to try this.

Is it still working, or should I just go by a G4 and get it over with?
