Epiphany not firing

Picked up an epiphany a while ago, it was neglected and apparently never cleaned even once but fired without any problems. After putting some balls through it was time to strip it down and clean/lube it with Dow33.

It turns on, the red light blinks with every trigger pull (eyes off) but nothing is happening, I've taken apart and relubed the reg and it gasses up no problem... any idea what's going on with this gun?

Have you checked your battery? Might be something wrong with it.

When disassembling your epiphany, did you happen to break any wires connecting the solenoid to the board?

It was firing perfectly prior to disassembly and airing it up?

What bolt do you have and were the orings in good condition?

Cheek your hosing to make sure there are no clogs in them.

If the gun is pressurizing and all electrical components are working it's most likely a solenoid problem. Which could mean you need a whole new board. I would take it to a local shop and have them check the solenoid over.

Put fresh batteries in, didn't feel anything break during the disassembly/assembly processes, stock bolt, orings and hosing all check out ok.

Yeah it wasn't the smoothest firing gun though, at first it would shoot fine then nothing for a couple of pulls then just goes back to shooting normal for the remainder of the day. like I mentioned earlier it was not maintained properly by the previous owner.

All this is leaning towards to a fried 'noid. Yep Grizzly I plan on taking it to a local shop this week to have it checked out. Thanks for the replies, I'll update y'all

And while you're at it, don't forget to rebuild your regulator! Hopefully you don't need a new board and it's something easy to fix.

Hector can probs figure it out quick for you tomorrow, and if it needs a new board and noid I think he might still have some blackhearts

Took the gun to Hectors today with Hruszko, all it needed was a new battery. I guess the pair I bought were both no good. Its shoots smooth as f**ck by the way "Its like a dm!" says Hruszko

Awesome! Yeah, the epiphany can be very picky with the batteries you give it. I tend to use the spyder 9.6v rechargeable ones or an energizer 9v.
