So basically here's what's going on: When you pull the trigger, it makes a small click noise (solenoid?) but nothing happens, the bolt does not move, and then it starts flashing green.
I replaced all of the O-Rings on the bolt assembly and rear cap because I got a leak last time I played. I figured they probably went bad because I stored the marker in my garage last winter, where it gets down to -15 degrees F at times. I don't know how the bolt can affect this here, but I wanted to mention it just in case. There are no scratches, dings, or dents anywhere on the bolt, it's in very good shape.
I tested the eyes. With the air off, I got solid red, put my finger in, solid green. Rinse, repeat. Eyes look clean, ribbon is in good shape, they're working.
I read that if the ASA is screwed in too far, it may not release the tank pin correctly. I tried varying depths, no change.
With the bolt taken out of the chamber, I get air flowing in.
Hyper 3 Regulator
I just took it apart, cleaned and re-greased it. Re-applied Teflon tape on the hose connector. It's clean with no dirt, plugs, or leaks.
Gutted, cleaned, and set back to factory setting. No change.
I'm using stock Dye (Green) lube on the bolt. You know what, I bet anything that this is the problem. Reference: This thread.
I tried three different brand new batteries. No change.
I've never touched this, and the settings are still at factory.
So what could this be? It's not the eyes, bolt, battery, or hyper 3 regulator from what I can tell. But it seems like air just isn't getting cycled to the bolt when the trigger is pulled? Does this mean my solenoid went bad? How can this happen, it was working 100% last time I used it in October? Did the cold temperature in the garage maybe freeze and destroy the solenoid rubber rings?
Help please! I'm going to ION in 2 weeks, I really need this thing to work.
