Geo: Light hitting board question.

I am in the middle of trading my 07 ego and closer for a geo and when I went to see the gun, the gun had trouble turning on.

I did some research and I saw that if the board/eyes is exposed to sunlight with grips off, no hopper or barrel, the gun won't turn on.

I recall being in the sun with no top cover with the grips open/board exposed, no barrel or hopper trying to get it to turn on.

The guy said he got it teched before I met him. 100% he was in a indoor facility?

Anywho, do all the 2009 Ego and Geo boards have this factory option? Seems like a stupid design/setting I've ever seen especially from Planet Eclipse.

Let me know guys! thanks!

Not sure exactly what you're saying or asking but if you put a hopper on the gun or cover the feedneck with your hand, it should turn on.

So basically, PE made the board not turn on if gun has grips off, has no barrel or hopper and is in the sun shining down on it?

all you have to do is cover your feedneck and it will turn on, idk if they designed it like that or its just how it works. i don't understand what the problem is.

ok cool.

the problem is the board not turning on when I don't have the barrel or hopper on. I didn't want to give up my guns for a broken gun, but I guess that's the way Geos are.

it is due to the ultra sensitivity of the eyes that the gun wont turn on


are you telling me you refuse to buy one of the cheapest/best spoolies on the market because you have to have a barrel and hopper on your gun or cover the feedneck and barrel port when you try to turn it on ???

i know putting a hopper and barrel isnt the normal thing to do when getting your gun ready for a day of training/tourney.... but seriously it takes like 2 seconds to do ?

Exactly. He keeps mentioning a barrel and hopper like it's making him go out of his way. Who plays without a barrel and hopper? He also keeps mentioning grips. Who plays without grips?

I don't think that's what he meant. It sounds like he didn't know about this specific feature on the geo. He was just coming here to make confirm that the said situation is normal and that he wasn't getting burned in his deal. Now that he knows that this is normal behavior for the geo he will probably go through wth the trade.

That makes much more sense. It's hard to tell what he's saying.
