impulse firing problem

So I took my impy with vision cricket out today and it was firing fine for a short time. Then it no longer was firing. The trigger was still activating the microswitch since the blue led blinked when I pulled the trigger. The manual fire button on the solenoid also fired the impulse when pushed. I don't know what happened. Could the daughter board be fried, thus not sending the signal to the solenoid?

disable eye and try again?

Try a new battery.

Make sure your trigger is resetting properly and that the pull is not too close. I doubt it is since you said you see the blinking light.

yes eye was off, still no firing. I put fresh batteries too. And yeah the trigger is resetting properly since I was able to pull the trigger and see the blinking light. I was thinking that there was something wrong with the connection between the two boards or the daughter board is broken.

I don't think there is a way to hook the solenoid into the main vision board is there?

Check all the plugs and wires. The connector that goes from the main board to the daughter board can screw up as well.

I'm pretty sure its the connector between the boards, but its funny since it was firing then it stopped. Is there a way to fix the connector?

It has been so long since I have been around a blackheart or stock vision board I forgot about that last part...


Other than checking the solders and using some rubbing alcohol to clean every thing up, does anything seem loose in the connector vicinity?

jeez it turns out I needed a super fresh battery. My previous one wasn't fresh enough even though it was pretty new.

One of the reasons we always recommend a new battery.



glad it's fixed!
