I recently purchased a used Proto Matrix Rail Special Edition, with a Dye Ultralight Frame. Everything seems to be working fine and as it should, except the eyes. When i turn it on it turns blue like normal, then goes right to green. On the first trigger pull it begins to blink green showing that the eyes are failing. Im pretty sure the battery is not going dead because the light does not blink blue, so thats not the problem. I swabbed the breach and cleaned each eye with a cue tip, although i did not remove the eye cover and clean them. Another problem related to the eyes is when i shoot it with the eyes on, the BPS is only at about 10, with any setting. For example if i put it on 13 BPS PSP ramping and shoot with the eyes on it is only about 10 BPS and only shoots two per trigger pull and not three. But when i turn the eyes off, it works exactly as it should. Your help with these problem would be greatly appreciated.


This was my exact E-Mail i sent to Dye, but i haven't got a response yet. I just decided to post here to see what you guys think, and if anyone can help that would be great. :]
I know what your thinking, risky, but nice.

are you shooting with paint and air? I remember having this problem when i was and idiot and forgot to air my pmr up. The board is programmed only to shoot at 10bps if the eyes are blocked, and since that seems to be the eyes that are the problem, that aspect is actually working correctly.

you may also want to try to change the battery even though it doesn't show the low battery signs, just to cover your bases.

Nope i havent shot it with paint and air becuase i have no air. I got a brand new battery but its still not working. When i can get some air ill see what happens

Solutions.
1.Make sure your eye ribbon isn't damaged/pinched between the UL Frame and the body.

2.Most common problem with the PMR w/ UL Frame is the connection between the eyes and the board. Bend the tab of the eyes (The piece of excess eye ribbon that makes it easier to dis connect the ribbon from the board) towards the body of the gun, So facing up towards the feedneck, Then screw your grips back on and make sure the eye ribbon is still bent towards the body of the gun when its closed.

Tell me how it goes, And if you need me to explain #2 a bit better post up.

I bent the tab up, but still no luck.
I'm just going to wait until i get some air and try it, and if it still doesnt work i guess ill send it to Dye.

Got home from school, and they seem to be working now. When i turn it on it goes red and when i put my finger in the breech it turns green. But its still making my BPS very low when the eyes are on, so ill just see if air fixes that. But thanks for the help.

put your finger in the breach, pull the trigger and quickly pull your finger out, simulating a ball being in the breach, and being fired when the trigger is pulled. the eyes can get confused, because when you dont pull your finger out, it thinks that it didnt fire the paintball, and it is still in the breach, or that it is not detecting a ball being fired and thinks that it is an eye failure.

and sorry i made the eyes sound like an animate object lol

or just put air WITH paint through it and it should be fine.
sorry that was confusing. im kinda tired/delusional right now
