I THINK THE BEARING (large) ON MY NEW DV888 BROKE OR WAS A BAD BEARING!!
it used to spin smoothly but now there is a lot of vibe. it used to be very quiet but now it sounds like there is an electric sander on a string. i only had it since halloween :’(
is it broken or have i just truly broken it in. when i got it i never cleaned the bearing like how some people do. i just played with it for a while and in the middle of a trick, it went from quiet to a slight grinding sound. it got worse over the day. i finally decided to unscrew it and take a look. when i spun the bearing on the axle, about ever 360 degrees there would be a rough little snag. i think one of the balls inside the bearing is broken or something. if it truly is broken, i will replace it’s bearing for the bearing on my xcon (until i order a new one (maybe KK?)) but i also am having trouble taking the bearing out of both the dv and the xcon. GOD WONT SOMEONE HELP ME!!!
