Evil pimp problem

I've had this up in the evil section for almost a week now so I thought I'd try it here.

My pimp, which I bought to fix up, shoots fairly well but has occasional very low power cycles. it has enough air to cycle but thats about it. This seems to occur randomly and doesn't change if I shoot at higher or lower rates. I haven't put any paint in it yet and I am shooting with eyes off. As far as I know it is the original pimp board and LPR I am using an ION reg that I had laying around.

The gun is clean and lubed, the bolt slides nicely. The O-rings appear to be in fine shape and there are no leaks.

The battery is of undetermined age

I just put my multimeter across the battery it has just crossed the line of death. I didnt even bother checking it because it looked so new and shiny. I'll get a new 9v and see how that works. thanks

the battery is always the first thing you should check, they can cause lots of problems when they get low and pb stuff is pretty hard on them. also they are the easiest thing to change so you might as well do it first just because of that.

My post was also on Pimp forums..
Pretty sure my board just died. I've ordered a new WAS board and will see how it works with that installed :/
