Another Vigil 2 problem? Can't Post

Haven't seen this one yet (searched...).

Buddy had a cutaway this weekend after a regular 5-way belly jump...out at 13.5 pull at 3. Nothing crazy. I saw his cutaway (from riser-release) after I was fully deployed at ~2.2-2.3K. Std stuff there too...EPs and gear worked as designed.

Was our first jump of the day and we geared up together. Watched him turn on his Vigil 2 and display "Pro."

At the loft the rigger found:

1) Unit OFF (jumper walked from LZ to loft with gear on)

2) Unit wouldn't cycle - stuck in the Vigil "Hello" trap

3) Cutter not fired

Unit has a mfg date of Dec 11, jumper has had it for about 6 months (guesstimate). Unit not subject to any updates / service bulletin fixes (incl the LCD 2.20 issue). Confirmed by mfg date and serial - rigger doublechecked on the spot. Unit currently being shipped back for "checking" etc.

In sum: V2 on when gear put on. Off after cutaway. Wouldn't turn on past "Hello".

Bueller...bueller...bueller?
