Epiphany Shoots, then stops.. Please Help

I have a question and hopefully somone can help.
Recently, I played at a local pb field and everything went ok
So i put my gun on pbnation here to sell, and was asked for a video to confirm the condition of the gun and how it shoots

And now here is the problem.. I hook air up to the gun, no leaks, and shoots perfect..
Then after a while, ive noticed that he gun will no longer fire, so i took off the barrel and unscrewed the air tank, and there is a ball stuck.. I have no idea why it randomly just gets stuck in the middle of firing..

Already cleaned and lubed and put in a new battery and cleaned the eyes, thsoe are the first things i did..
And I'm pretty sure the eyes work, because i turn th board on and they repeatedly blink signalling the eyes read sometihing

Does this happen repeatedly or did it just happen once? If it just happened once than it was a pinched ball. No big deal, crappy paint...heck even nice paint...will do that. Happened to me in the middle of a tourny once. If it keeps happening over and over again Ill betcha its something wrong with your detents.

Take it apart and put it back together correctly making sure the detents are put in correctly.

Ok check the detents (the little bumps that keep the ball from rolling out the barrel) and tell me what happens.

Most likely it is the detents as suggested above.

if the nubs onthe detents are worn they need to be replaced.

Yeah just look (or feel with your fingers) and check to make sure that they are sticking out into the chamber just a little bit. the back end of them should be about flush with the outer wall of the bolt assembly.

They SHOULD stick out into the chamber, on the INSIDE that is. Thats what they are for, they stop the paintball from rolling down the barrel.

OK so in your original post you said the ball gets "stuck" describe what you mean there. is it just chilling in the chamber? or is it actually physically stuck (ie. pinched in the bolt)?

Just chilling there
Like it will fire, fire fire, then i stop shooting and when i go to shot again, it like wont even try to shoot,
Its not the detents, i just recently tried to put a ball in it and it stopped the ball, then i gave a little push and it rolled out
