shoots fine then randomly stops cycling

My Epiphany will shoot like a champ. then if i stop shooting for a few seconds it will fails to even cycle. I turn the board off and back on and it will fire only once and begin fail again. Blackheart board, all other internals are stock, all lubed up and mantained. (some info just in case someone else has seen it before) Hope i dont sound like a noob, but i've never had this problem and can't seem to solve it. Ive also tried two brand new duracells. Thanks

Also can a stock ion board be used on the epiphany. I know it fits but are opperating pressures and other factors causing it to be a bad fix. Because i placed a stock ion board in it for a day and the problem went away. So that leads me to believe its the board. But opperating pressure was only 200. Any thoughts. Thanks

Do you have a multi meter to check out the battery?

Another thing to check would be the QEV, it may be clogged, a similar thing happend to both my son and me. It drove me nuts for a bit until I figured out it was the QEV.

Yeah, I had that same problem, the refs/techs at my field thought it was the QEV, i thought it was the QEV, it was the QEV. At first we thought it was the o-ring of it, but idk, a tech took a look at it and fixed it, unfortunately it broke down the next week..

it doesnt have qev. Could that be a problem? solinoid is fine Also. Keep the ideas coming. Please. Willing to try anything you may think will help. Also i am trying to shoot in cold temperatures like 40's and lower. If that makes a difference. Also pressure in gun is only 200. Is that a problem? Thanks to all who are trying.

Is it still doing that with eyes off/when dry firing? like can you hear the air drop down? And could you have possibly over-lubed the bolt? If those fail, any leaks at all?

well, my last suggestion would probably be turn the air up just a bit, and see if that works, and then turn it down a bit and check that, if not, check your board settings.
