Hey guys. Looking for help trying to troubleshoot a problem.

 

My G6R won't fire. I can manually depress the little red button on the solenoid to cycle the marker, but holding the trigger for a manual fire or putting it in eyes off mode does nothing.

 

Based on the lights, the board *appears* to be working. It can tell when the eyes are blocked, I can go into config mode, it blinks  when I hold the trigger to manually fire, responds when I put it in eyes-off mode and pull the trigger, etc.

 

It looks like it should be firing, but the solenoid doesn't ever sound like it engages. I never hear a click, etc.

 

I used a fresh battery, and I just replaced the solenoid on it, so that should be good.  (the old 'noid had a different problem, but wouldn't 'click' either).

 

I've torn it down, top-to-bottom, cleaned/lubed, etc. 

 

I'm starting to think I might need to try replacing the board? Any thoughts? It did get wet a while back, and would have been damp for a bit. That's the last time it worked. But everything else seems fine?

 

edit: I guess it's not clear, but the trigger is hitting the microswitch, yes.

Adjust your trigger so it hits the microswitch?

Check the trigger wires to the board.

If you pull the trigger without anything turned on or aired up do you hear the microswitch click at all?  If you don't, like Jurzy said, the board won't activate.  You'll have to adjust the trigger screws to allow the switch to (dis)engage.

Yeah. The trigger is engaging the microswitch fine. I can change modes, it responds when I hold it down for 3 seconds (ie: manual shot). So that's not the problem either.

Check the trigger wires to the board.

 

 

Then reset the board.

Just default settings-wise? I've done that as well.

Have you had air to it or just trying to mess with the trigger with no air?  Does the solenoid sound like its leaking at all with air supplied?  Have you had your marker on a pressure tester lately?

I didn't re-test the pressures w/ the new solenoid, but I did when I was initially working on it. They should be ok.

 

It's aired up (it cycles fine when I manually engage the 'noid w/ the red button on the side).

 

No leaking.
