Once again I come here asking for help, as you may remember my previous thread asking for help about installing the Tadao Ebisu board, which went smoothly thanks to you guys
Since then my Excalibur has still remained as an occupational paperweight, which is frustrating as I really want this thing to work, and get some good games in with it(even more so now before the nice weather is gone!)
The problem is(and one of the reasons I bought the Tadao Ebisu board, after reading about certain problems with the Chaos Pandora board) that the marker itself is generally just extremely inconsistent all together when firing. Firing single shots at the rate of a pump yields okay-ish results, but still nothing fancy or reliable even at that. When at all walking the trigger(let's say anything above 4 bps), the bolt will begin to lock up, and randomly "Puff", and sometimes even jam up entirely getting stuck(the bolt jamming entirely is a much more rare occurrence though.) The paintballs will do everything from leaving the barrel at 350fps, to probably something that isn't even a mesely 1fps, or not at all.
This has persisted before, and after switching boards. It has persisted through cleaning the regulator, and resetting the regulator. I've tried numerous settings on the board, anything from factory defaults to several different other patterns with higher dwell and such with no effect what-so-ever on the performance. Eyes on, or off have no effect either, and I'm most certain all of the wires are undamaged. I've spent some time reading the manuals with no conclusive solution other than a slight suspicion of bad springs/o-rings, and I have also looked around a lot from here to Mcarterbrown. It is most certainly not the battery either, before someone mentions that
It's pretty much a stock 03' Excal with eyes, with the exception of the Tadao Ebisu board, with Humphrey solenoids.
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions to go on from here? Are my solenoids perhaps bad? Is the LPR/pneumatics-regulator perhaps at fault here? I've never touched the LPR btw, and I have no idea what it is set at. Could it be dirty/bad/damaged internals/o-rings or otherwise apart from the SideWinder regulator?
Here's a short video I recorded with my toaster of the Excalibur firing, if that would help: http://filesmelt.com/dl/excalprobfinal1.wmv
Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions!
