Help w/ mini

Last time I went out to the field, something very strange happened. The game was about to start, when suddenly there's this popping sound... My mini then starts shooting out air. I take it apart, almost completely sure it's a popped o-ring... And all the o-rings are fine. Luckily, that was the last game of the day, so I didn't miss much. Once I get home, I open it up and clean it, screw in my tank, the tank is punctured, and... It holds the air just fine. It was very odd. Anyone know what happened? I don't want to take it in to have them look inside, and pay just to have them say it's fine. But then again, I don't want to go play and it starts spewing air again...

Weird, that just happened to a guy at my field. He didn't even pull it apart, turned it off, pulled the bolt and put it back in. That was at the first game, and it didn't have an issue after that. We have 3 people with Minis, and none of us had seen it before. Sorry this is not much help, but we saw no problems after so I am sure you will be fine. I believe its just the poppet being stuck open.

Alright, thanks. I must have the same problem, as after cleaning it it was fine. I'll just take it out to play again and bring my trusty A5 as a backup

If your battery getting low it will cause the solenoid to stick open and leak. Normal thing to do to replace it is reset the solenoid after you install a battery.
