Proto slg skipping shots-solenoid problem?

okay so this slg i just picked up from a friend is having some weird problems with the solenoid. When i just click the solenoid (like no air just shooting trigger with eyes off) its fine until i start walking the trigger. The sound seams to fade as you can see in the video below.
If anyone has any idea whats wrong that would be great if you can help me out
I need this fixed tonight i have to use it in a tournament tomorrow.
Battery is brand new BTW

I would agree with the above. The sear trigger seems to need more battery power than a solenoid in the other spoolies. The SLG for some reason eats batteries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I suspect there is some sort of power leak because if the marker sits unused for a while, the battery will be dead. In my Ego 8, the battery doesn't seem to lose any charge when unused.

Make sure that there is a good connection with the battery. I had the same problem. The little prongs tend to bend backwards after time and lose their connection with the battery. Try putting little pieces of cardboard underneath the base of the battery or at the prongs to keep them pushed forward.

I'm also having this problem with my 09 slg ul. Haven't even played with it yet. My solenoid will click fine when pulling trigger slow, walk it and it starts acting like the battery is dying. Light dims and will turn yellow, then sometimes bright blue or purple. Tried different but not new battery (alkaline), same prob, tried fully charged rechargeable same prob. Gonna get some new batteries and try. Will post what I find out.

Mine seems to be the battery. I looked at the side of these rechargeables and one is 8.4v the other is 7.2v. Put in a energizer alkaline (fairly new) and it starting clicking the solenoid as it should be. Gonna get some brand new batteries and shim it with some paper. I expect this will fix my problem.

Really hate that it has tabs for the battery connection. Pretty chinsy Proto/Dye.
