BKO will NOT fire!

I can't get my BKO to fire!
I adjusted the pressure all over the place on the hpr and lpr. The dumb thing just will not fire!

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks

Try depressing the red button on the solenoid.

A similar thing happened with my Promaster and that got it going again.

Ok well there are some basic symptoms that we need to look at. The first is the electronics.

1. If your marker is not air'd up and you depress the trigger do you hear the solenoid click?
--If no then you need to change your battery.
--If battery is good then you need to check your harness connections and swap out a fresh board.
--if not the board or harness then you need a new noid.

A fast check on this is the hot wire the battery to the noid to try and make it click. This will tell you if the problem is in the board/harness and not the noid.

2. If the noid clicks when the marker is not air'd then it means that either there is no air getting to the noid or the ram is faulty.
--so double check your LPR by cranking it up until you hear the leak and then backing it off a few to verify you have air flow.
--then do a general check of your ram.

These are pretty basic markers and I'm almost 100% sure that its an electronic problem but if not then you have a clog some where. Not unheard of, but rare.

well im pretty sure its not electrical because i put the marker arms length away and pulled the trigger and herd the noid click


what do you mean by a check of my ram? I'm totally new to these kind of markers so i don't know much

So I tried replacing the regulator (needed a new one anyways) and its still won't fire. I just hear a click from the noid like I was dry firing it, my next instinct is to take the tray off and check the air passage ways. could that be the problem?

Ok I'm going thought this in my head and here are some ideas.

1. go get a 100% new battery.

2. Turn up your LPR until the noid begins to leak. I'm going to take a guess here but I bet your LPR isn't letting any air into your ram because it's been rebuilt improperly. If you can't get the noid to leak by turning it up take your va off your gun and disconnect the air hose. Put it back on and turn the LPR all the way down. Now gas up the marker and slowly turn up the LPR to see if any air starts coming out.

If the LPR turns out to be the issues get a new VA that allows you to attach a "cocker" style LPR. I think you can still find them on Ebay or maybe Amazon.

if your noid is clicking, there's a vrey good chance that it's a low pressure air issue. I'm thinking that these folks are right about the LPR being put together wrong, or being faulty in some way.

Is the noid bleeding off if you increase the LPR pressure?

Pilot or coil is probably bad on the solenoid. Happens a bunch to humphrey noids.

Yes it is, I was gonna buy a new noid any way though because the wire on my current one broke...
