Vgate Scan VS600 problems

Post by FrontBackSide2Side on Sat Feb 07, 2015 7:19 pm

I know a few people on here use these scan tools, have any of you had problems with yours? I've only used mine a hand full of times and now it won't power up properly Sad

I plug it in to the OBD2 port (i've tried various cars) and the screen lights up but stays blank. I've also plugged it into my computer and it does the same.

Shame as it was a good bit of kit when it was working Sad

I have bought two of the damn things and they won't work on the 9volt memory sustaining battery. Both from Amazon. Both are going back along with six faulty  Chinese Clone Phones. THEY ARE ALL CRAP!!   How often have any of you seen me swear on this site. Only once before in two years. So now I have just bought three new Sony Xperia Z3Dual Sim 6633,  their Flagship Phones at £500 each from MobiCity in Manchester.  Should have done that ten months ago. You get what you pay for.
Crumbs just realized I joined the Forum on 2nd February 2013. Where he has the time  all gone to??

I've had mine for about 5 years now and its been faultless.

Comes out of the tool box a couple of times a week.

Gets hammered, dropped, yanked - all sorts! Never dies Smile (so far)

Hi Matt.  The V Gate Scanners I bought are bright Orange. From two different suppliers. Is the one you bought the same colour??

What about yours FTBTS?? Educated guess--  ORANGE !!!

Both of mine have played up from opening the box. One, the second one worked a few times when I played around with the battery then gave up.
Both work alright when plugged in to the Terminal but obviously won't retain the information when connector is taken out. Very disappointed.
With virtually every electronic device I have bought from Amazon they haven't worked properly or have become faulty. NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE. So that's the stance I am going to take with Amazon and if I don't have any joy then Trading Standards will be gotten involved. Is Watchdog on BBC still going. If it is it may be worth sending all six phones and the OBD2 's to them to examine.
It is well over a £900 worth ( Worth ? Who am I kidding ) costs of Chinese Junk.

Does it do live data?

The Autel MaxiScan MS509 are pretty cool too.

And the Autel Maxiscan GS500 too.


My favourite scanner on the market is the Autel Maxisys MS908 - but it'll be a bit out of the price range for an occasional user. I use it all every day and think its the bomb. I have used pretty much every professional product on the market, and there is nothing better. The snap on stuff is pants, its slow, over priced, and doesn't offer much functionality.

These ones were £30 but whether £30 or £3000 they are not fit for purpose.
They or one definitely does work

Problem is, once a diag tool comes onto the market, within months the market is flooded with chinese copies. These are a total waste of space and tend to be unreliable and half the time they don't even work out of the box.

Some of the bits of kit I use, I have no choice but use chinese copies as the originals are prohibitively expensive. So I end up buying a few from different sellers, direct from china using aliexpress, then I rip them open to see how well the electronics inside is constructed, test them for functionality, then flog the rubbish ones on ebay to some other poor mug!
