New Mangna have questions

Ok. so I got a new magna and rf chip. I put the chip in my shocker and threw some new batteries in the loader. I turned it on and tested it. it spins with each pull when you go slow. but when you start to wlk the trigger. it spins then stalls, spins then stalls. So I check the speed setting and it was on six. while the loader is sitting there it will just randomly half spin. I popped the lid and it smells like something is burning inside. I have had several halos and never had any of them smell. Also this is my first rf'd loader. Did I get a lemon or am I just doing something wrong?

The rf chip doesn't work too well with the shocker boards. Did you solder it on there good?

Try calling empire and see what they say. It seems that some of the wires or maybe your loader board may have burned a fuse or something.

Sounds like it is working perfectly.

The loader uses intelligent feedback to know when it doesn't have paint in it.

That's why it's slowing and stopping to try and get balls to feed.

If the loader is empty and just spins quickly all you get is popcorning, no feeding, and broken paint, and that's why we actually program it to slow down and even stop briefly if there is no paint in it.

Put it on your gun and shoot paint, and you'll see that it is just fine.

The loader shouldn't have come out of the box on setting 6, are you sure it was? I'd turn it down to 3 or 4.
