Yesterday I was playing in 17 degree weather and when I tried to chrono my fx it wouldn't cycle. Was it because of weather or something else I even turned the dwell up slot higher to 9 and still wouldn't cycle. Could someone please help.

It might've been because it was cold. Did you try lubing your ram and bolt FIRST? It could've just made your orings really stiff. Try cycling it now and see what happens.

Could be the battery. Even if its new sometimes the cold will drain it

But the gun was on and eyes works it's probably because I didn't lube up the bolt or ram

Just because the marker was on and the eyes were on doesn't mean the battery had enough juice to cycle the marker. Next time lube your marker and try a different battery.

Sometimes it's the obvious steps the we overlook. It could be the battery, you could be out of air, maybe you forgot to turn on the ASA, the reg could have been closed off, etc.

Lower temp will lower the output voltage of the battery. Most electronics these days regulate voltage down to 3.3 volts or less which is why your eyes/board were still working. The solenoid however probably needs a higher voltage to operate. As mentioned it is quite plausible your battery wasn't fresh enough or a different battery composition is in order.

This, the eyes and the lights take little battery to run, most of the battery goes to cycling the gun

I will try everything you guys said. Most likely the reg was closed since I just fixed it and it really never was shot through the stock reg
