Geo 2 help !!! never seen before

i got my gun at PSP Chicago and it has been shooting fine until maybe a month ago. At first it was just bolt stick so i cleaned and re-lubed it still was sticking so i rose the dwell up by 1.5 because it is cold where i am. It helped at first but, about a week ago the bolt would get stuck forward and it will drain the air then go back and chop and then go forward again and drain the air (so on and so on) so i downed the dwell to factory and had the whole oring assembly replaced and it still does it. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP

all I can think of is the ball ck in the noid being the problem

It could also be a bad o ring on the bolt, dirty bolt.

Try and set the dwell to 14.5 and see what you get

When you say the bolt sticks forward and "drains the air", what do you mean exactly? Is air draining constantly through the bolt for as long as it is forwards?

If so, then this could indeed be a solenoid issue, as the Geo and Geo2 fire with fixed volume of air, so it should not be possible for this to happen.

It is the solenoid that shuts off air supply to the firing chamber when the marker fires, so I would have to assume that it would be the solenoid at fault if the air supply is not being cut off.

yeah the air is drained constantly through the bolt when it is stuck forward.

I have had ALL the o-rings replaced twice, replaced the battery with a new Energizer battery, and I know how to properly lube my bolt it is not over/under lubed.
I have checked if the air filter to see if it has collected dirt or debris and it was clean.
I have checked everything and I had 2 Planet Eclipse certified techs to check and recheck and it still does the same thing.
I had my dwell up at 14.5 when it started so i set it back to factory to see if that would help.
After i got it cleaned and o-rings replaced it still did the same thing on both 14.5 dwell and factory dwell.
I have not touched any other setting on my besides the dwell and trust me when I say this, I have done everything possible to fix this gun.

Exactly what I was going to say. Email Nicky T and see about getting it sent in. I'm sure they will get it up and working just fine.
Gotta love that PE warranty
