G3 not firing issue
Posted 26 December 2008 - 03:52 PM
I aired it up on Christmas day, and put 4 pods through it. Crappy paint, but not breaks, no jams, and a flawless performance. I decided to lube it up and put one more pod through it and it worked fine. Thent oday i headed over to play some indoor speedball. The first round i played was awesome. The paint was shooting ropes, and i was getting very decent ROF's. We switched sides for a second round, and i noticed that i had one drop off...i assumed it was the regulator needing to be broken in. I thought nothing of it, and waited for the 10 second burn. I ran, slid into back right and came up to get the person who dived too far into the snake and was RIGHT infront of me. With my luck...the gun doesnt fire.
Now, i come back into the bunker and check if the gun is on...and it is. I check the hopper...its feeding fine. I turn the eyes off and it doesnt fire, i turn the eyes back on and still wont fire. I turned it on and off maybe 6 times and nothing. I had to call myself out after 2 minutes of it.
After being furious about it not working, i sat out the next few rounds reading the manuel for a 3rd time. I did everything it said and more.
"change the battery"- Yup
"move the solinoid into place"- Yup
"Adjust the HPR"- Mhm (multiple times)
I took out the bolt, checked all orings, relubed it, cleaned the eyes, i mean everything. I was like, ok after doing everything ill go try and shoot it. Miraculous! it shot. The velocity was at 190, so i turned it up slowly. As soon as i hit around 230, stopped firing. Hopper on, board on, asa on...no shots. I ended up playing the rest of the day fine with my pmr but when u get a new gun, u wanna play with it.
Any help on it? I assume its something to do with the solinoid or regulator since i didnt do much with either. Also...may have NO relevance but i read a lot about new "Reg seats" for the g3 that dangerous power had to give out to replace the old faulty ones. Idk...someone help me!

The most common problem and the easiest fix for this kind of problem is changing out the sail oring. The oring is the 3rd oring from the tip of the bolt or the rear most oring on the bolt.
There is a simple mod you can do it this ever happens again at the field. Look http://www.techpb.co...?showtopic=2546
It's pretty easy and will keep you playing. It's ment to be a quick fix at the field but many leave it that way instead of buying more orings for the bolt.
Also since the Threshold is so similar to the G3 this thread might help you out. http://www.techpb.co...?showtopic=2536
Hopefully the link helps you out.

I also took out the bolt, took out all orings, and inspected them all thoroughly. I then put them back in, and relubed it.
What else could be the problem??

Did you do the teflon tape mod?
I didnt, instead i replaced all the orings on the bolt.
when you fire do you hear the solenoid click or do you hear the gun gas up
Well, the problem is i cant fire it so i cant tell if its clicking when i fire or not..cause its not firing lol. But, when i have air in it, asa on, board on ect ect it does click. With eyes off the board registers all my trigger pulls.
^ exactly. If the noid isnt clicking the trigger isnt registering across the sensor. You can try messing with the adjustment screws but mine shot perfectly fine after awhile and then just stopped clicking and I had to glue a metal tab from a car fuse to the back of the trigger blade to register a shot - works PERFECTLY now
If you put your eyes off, and pull the trigger the noid clicks and the board lights up for every time the trigger is pressed. This makes me think that the registering of shots isnt the issue because it seems to be clicking fine.

This leads me to believe that its not the sensor, but the noid itself.
