pm6 help

Hey guys I just picked up a pm6 from a friend of a friend and am having some issues with it. It has what looks like a virtue board in it and when i turn the gun on it reads that the eyes are on, but fires anyways. Secondly, while shooting about 30-50 shots with the eyes on or off the board shuts off.

Anybody heard of this happening before?

I would just send an email to virtue and find out with problem is because that might be an issue with the board itself

What color is the LED? And the Hyper 2 / air would not have any effect on the board turning itself off.

You need to download the proper manual for your board. Until you know what settings you're on, anything else you do is pure speculation.

You should know all virtue boards have a forced shot option. Meaning if you hold the trigger down for a second or two, the gun will fire. Even with eyes on. Sticking something down the feed neck to block the eyes will also cause the gun to fault to eyes off mode.

i put my finger down the breech to block the eyes and nothing. shooting it with paint doesnt block the eyes either. its only when i shoot at high rates of fire that the board turns off. otherwise the gun shoots fine.

So you're saying if you block the eyes the gun still won't fire? But if you turn the eyes off the gun will fire?

That sounds like bad eyes, low battery power, the eyes are plugged into the wrong spot on the board(if there even is another spot), or the board is defective. Try a board reset to see if that helps.

Now It's been a long long time but if I remember turn off the marker. Put dip switch 2 on then power up and you'll be in program mode. From here just hold the trigger down for about 10 seconds until it flashes all colors. Then let go and that should return all settings to stock. Then power the gun off and on again to see if that helps.

One other thing to check is that the wires that go to the eyes are not broken off....and that they are all the way down into the white wire plug on the board. Sometimes people yank on the wires and pull them out of the white plug, which means they won't work properly. Even bad eyes will usually cause the gun to fire if they were plugged in properly. Yours don't so either the eye wires are messed up or the board is.

I would try a new battery from another pack too. If there isn't enough power to run the eyes, and board at the same time, the gun may still fire without eyes on. It would die shortly though. It's worth a shot, you may have just bought a pack of duds.

Last but not least, if none of the above works out call virtue. They may still replace it if they have any in stock.
