trouble with the gun

my brother has the 2010 version of this gun and when he turns it on it lets him shoots one shot, then blinks green( meaning the thingy that senses balls isnt sensing one) and then wont shoot. so he only can get one shot off when he turns it on then hes done. and i know the hopper is working because its a brand new halo too and i even put it on my gun and it worked so any ideas?? thanks

Hold the bottom button (not the power one) for a second to turn the eyes off. If it fires then your eyes are malfunctioning. They are either dirty, not connected, or defective. Just take off the eye-covers on the body, carefully pull the eyes from their slots and wipe them down, put them back on and then try it. If they still don't work when they are clean, open the grips and make sure they are fully connected and haven't come loose. If they are on there properly check the ribbon/wires (not sure which it has) for tears or bends. If they look ok then they are just defective and you may need to get new ones.

Try those and then let us know if it works.

^^^^ That I forgot. Yes, after you check if they are clean, change the battery.

changed the battery and it worked fine. but there is a sound of air leaking where the air is connected to the gun.....but we left the airtank in the gun and just let it sit and it isnt losing air. the one thing is though is the gun is firing like it is extremely low on air but it has plenty. and the air tank is fine because i used it in mine sooooooo help again lol

Only do that in front of a chrono where you can test the FPS, if you turn those up too high without doing so you will blow the noid and be out 1 gun. A new noid can be costly.

Good call I didn't even think of that, anyways toward OP I have my dweel at 18 Factory setting if that isn't working try 20 it should be perfect on the 2010, and for velocity i'd turn it all the way out and then turn it in about 3 full turns but like Felonious said do it over a chrono so you can keep it working at a safe level.

I've heard of a similar problem its normally the back 2 o-rings on the bolt housing or its the super duper small o-ring on the back of the bolt if not make sure that you have your backcap screwed in all the way, also if you can clarify if its a major leak at the back or if it just sprays air out the back when you fire it, cause if it shoots a small burst of air out when you shoot it then it is normal, also try checking your dwell and see if that changes the problem

Change you o-ring on the bolt not just inspect them, they might look good, and still cause a leak
