Hey everybody! So, I haven't been around much because I have been working like an animal for the past few months (teaching preschool doesn't exactly make one rich, lol). But as I was going through my costume and making the usual updates and repairs, I found that MY LIGHTSABER IS BROKEN AND NEEDS HELP NOW!

So, I own the Kit Fisto FX lightsaber. I love it, and it's a beautiful hilt. But the electronics have been malfunctioning. The on/off switch doesn't work, and it's permanently set to "on," meaning that when I put in the blade, it automatically turns on, and I can't turn it off without removing the blade. But now even WORSE, the end (front? spout? part-where-the-blade-comes-out?) won't screw on any more, which means I can't even carry the hilt around because it's missing a piece unless I can fix it!

I know it may be a simple fix, but I have no such skills in the craft and I have very limited means. Is there anybody in the base who would be able to help me to fix my lightsaber? Even if we can only get the hilt fixed, it would be better than no lightsaber at all, though if anybody can actually get the electronics up and running too that would be AMAZING. I only want to buy a new lightsaber as a last resort. If anybody can help, do let me know!

Thanks guys, and sorry I haven't been around. Life gets in the way, you know. You're all the best!

I've not worked with this model before so I cannot really say. You might try posting here though, because I'd guess this has happened to someone else as well.

You might try to contact the manufacterer of the saber and see if it would be covered by warranty, or if they can repair it. The Kit Fisto saber seems to be the harder one to find and seems to be a bit more expensive because of that.
