I had a problem moving a filter from the Omni V to the VI Plus.
The filter worked in the V, but the same thing you describe
ocurred in the VI Plus.
Some suggested springing the pins of the filter to make a
better contact, but that did not work for me. What did work
was adding solder to the pins to make them thicker. The
problem seems to be lack of contact by all four pins. Also,
be sure the filter is pushed in far enough.
