[Answered]  Hybrid Driver Breakage

My Hybrid just stopped working (light not flashing and no whirring sounds at all) after one hit from stock combo Union Achilles. I tried rearranging tthe batteries and bought an extra set to see if the batteries were at fault, but to no avail. F*** that stamina testing then (not like I have Go Weight to begin with). Hybrid is a shoddy piece of carp for not having metal especially around the actual part. I even tried having Union have a go against it again in the hopes of whacking it back to life, but I guess that's money out of the window now, unless there is something else I can do to give life into it again.

Anyone else experienced this or was able to get something done to fix it?


Edited: Not really answered, but my Hybrid just went up and running again just a few hours ago, so I just hope it is kept that way. Sights locked for Ig' soon!

Guess time to get your  Sauter  kit and fix it if the wires broke or replace the interior but that about it

It seems as if a lot of beyblade youtubers in Japan have had this same issue. The only thing we can do is wait and see if TT will fix the issue on their own.

It's just too irritating that one must become an adept electrical mechanic just so you can fix and enjoy something that should be designed to withstand obvious stress. This is like using a glass hammer to pound on iron nails sheesh It also doesn't help that it's kinda hard to acquire the correct screwdriver type for tri-wing and triangle screws that they keep on using (which is good cuz we distinguish original from fake with those)

It is a big issue especially if the Bladers who experienced such unprofessionally designed part get rekt without any reparations reside not in the homeland of Beyblades. $75 ain't cheap, and it ain't worth the buck if we keep on getting duds (probably it is true that people speculate that the Burst mania is dying so TT is just striking the iron while its still hot). Basic design flaw is that they made the contact area with carp plastic that doesn't have any insulation/shock absorption inside (it doesn't need to be heavy, but it should still be sturdy), so tendency is that every hit to the contact area of the Driver means shaking the components within (like pro boxing where older boxers get scrambled brains with enough head damaging shots)

yeah lowercase y looks more like gamma
I'm in the US. Just got my set and after a few battles only the lights come on... I was more hyped for Apocalypse, especially after hearing this was a thing.
When I heard of this problem...
I was like “fudge dis sauce!” And bought me 2 sets!
If one breaks, I’ll have a fresh one to spare.... I hope I won’t have to use it tho...
Man this scares me as I'm about to unbox mine. I even went out in the cold today to buy LR44 batteries since I was told that they don't ship with any.
Let's pray Ignition' doesn't have this problem as well.
I don't know HOW this happened but, My hybrid driver changes direction while in battle back and forth like ignition, idk what happened but it changes back and forth from left and right in battle and this is the hybrid driver lol. Guess I don't have to buy imperial driver

I don't have the driver, but did you set the rotation in the right direction?

Yea, No matter what switch I change it to it always switches mid battle to the opposite of what i set. Back and forth
So, my update is that after 2 or so weeks of not being home due to father duties, I revisited my box that contained Hybrid. I picked it up, almost certain it would never emit a whirring sound nor light up when I switch it on (because it got hit once by a stock Union Achilles combo testing by that time and it suddenly stopped lighting up).


I was surprised and thrilled to hear the familiar whir upon turning it on and also looked closely as the green light flickered again, strongly at that. Not sure why it had the temporary "breakage" but I'm quite happy it didn't die on me completely, but will just probably be a collection piece.

Edit: I tried the left spin Layer on right spin mode Hybrid, but it still doesn't have the ultimate spinny time for Burst... quite odd, or probably a fluke?

Hybrid is used to boost the spin power of the existing spin direction of the layer. So left mode should be used for left layers, and right mode should be used for right layers.

Maybe just put it in the opposite of usual?
It is odd, but when I try to use left Layer on left mode, it becomes a semi-flower pattern attacker, but left Layer on right mode makes it a staller that revolves more than 8 times. Might have to watch Mack the Burst's vid again for that
