invert mini problems

Hi, I have a few questions about my invert mini. I have been shooting it for about 2 weeks and this morning when I put the tank on and I started to hear a leaking sound. I put my ear near where the hopper is supposed to go, and i could here the air leak pretty loud, is this normal? if not, how can I fix it? My second problem is sometimes when i turn my mini on a rapid orange light flashes, whats that?


Also does anyone know the customer support number for invert?

Thanks for all the help!

The cap on the back, turn it so that it goes all the way in, then bring it back out about 3/4 of a turn (if memory serves). This reseats and resets the poppit, should fix your leaking issue. The orange flashing light, if your board is stock, may be the battery.

Kanvass is correct. The poppet needs to be reset, and change your battery out to a fresh new name brand battery.

If you put your finger in front of the bolt does pressure build up behind your finger?


Here is a little guide I have put together to help with leaks.
-Take out your poppet and clean all of the old lube off.
-Apply new lube to the rear o-ring only.
-Make sure that there is no lube on the poppet face or seal..
-Test to see if that has fixed the problem.
-If not, try resetting the poppet with a little bit of force. This can help the seal form better and will allow the poppet to seal properly with the bolt guide.
- Go here and identify what version poppet you have. If it is a version one chances are you are going to need a new poppet.
-I would suggest ordering from here, part number 33.
-If you have one of the newer poppets you can order replacement faces for the poppet and save some money. However I have yet to see these packs available online.

Please let us know if you have any more questions, we will be glad to help you.

Your solenoid probably needs to be reset. You can do it a couple ways. The first way doesn't always work, but is much less invasive. Turn your dwell up as high as it will go on the marker and fire a couple shots. Sometimes this will slam the solenoid back into the correct position.

If that doesn't work, follow this guide here and clean it off and reset it.

For the bolt, there is a hole at the top of the back of the bold assembily. If the hole in the bolt doesn't fact at 12 o'clock, the numb that is on the frame will will stop it from fitting flush.

Here is what we have seen.. There are two types of leaks on Minis and Axes..

First Type - Slow and quiet
That would mean the Bolt Assembly anything from o-rings to the guide itself. If the bolt is not being pushed forward then the leak is in the poppet or the guide where the poppet is housed. However if it is being pushed forward then it could be an o-ring on the guide.

Try switching poppet’s face seals. Make sure to install it correctly. Then Close off the Velocity and add air if the leak is still there then it’s the Guide itself that is the issue..

Second Type.... Loud and Fast

The second part is going to be harder than the first due to there being more things that can cause it. However it can be solved with simple troubleshooting steps.

This could be anything for the REG to the Board.
1) And for most always have a GOOD battery in the marker, we suggest Duracell.
Dead batteries cause a lot of issues... Remember that the way that the marker is setup is you have the Power source, Main Board, Secondary Board, Solenoid. If let’s say that the Secondary board is damaged then it can cause the power to be lessened for the solenoid. And if the solenoid does not get the proper amount of power then it will cause a LOUD AND FAST LEAK.
2) Watch you’re Gauge on the REG don't let it go over 200 PSI.
3) Try resetting your Solenoid (instructions on this is located in the manual http://www.paintballsolutions.com/in...p/about/empire )
Also try cleaning the solenoid.
Most people never thing about the air or the way they play but dirt can get into your tank which then goes into the marker. This dirt can cause issues which is why it is important for you to keep the marker cleaned and lubed.

Just wanted to explain that sorry if it seems to long winded..

Thanks for that. That post should be stickied at the top of the forum (although I bet only half the people who have leaks would actually look at it lol).
