I have the same problem with mine. Sometimes it won't turn on, and sometimes it will. I put a fresh battery in mine and it fixed it though. Did you try the double tap method, where you quickly push the button twice to turn it on?

make sure a hopper is on (or else cover the feedneck with your hand) and close the grips. The gun won't turn on unless the eyes recognize each other and direct sunlight can confuse them and therefore won't let the gun turn on.

Holy **** your right. Now that I think about, every time it wouldn't turn on, it was in the sun, then I'd walk indoors to try and fix it, and it worked. Then I'd go back outside, and it wouldn't work. Haha **** drove me insane.

So you get to the field and first thing you do is turn your gun on? Reason I ask is because for me, I make sure I have a hopper and tank on my gun and first time I turn it on is when I get to the chrono range.
