Quest Cycling Issues

The other day I decided to use my Quest in a game. It shot great for the first hopper or so then it got to the point where it could not cycle at all. It has always had really bad FSDO.
When I got home I put all new orings on the bolt and bolt stem and a new battery. I do not have a guage on the gun so I dont really know what my LPR is set to. There isnt even a port to put a guage on like on 99% of the other Quests out there.
I havent had a chance to put paint thru it again. But do any of you have other suggestions?

Try using a light coat of thin dow33 based lube on all the o'rings, then zeroing out the LPR, air the marker up and then turn on with eyes off, then pull the trigger while raising the LPR pressure until the bolt cycles consistently; then give it a 1/8 of a turn and call it a day (this is the way I do it, my quest also lacks the gauge port)

If you're still having issues then air it up with the frame off and try cycling the gun by pushing the orange button on the noid. If it cycles fine then your noid coil may be dead.

Thanks for the suggestions. Ill try them tonight and see what happens. If the noid is dead the good news is that I have a spare.

Unfortunately I havent had the chance to mess with it. Work among other things has been taking up al of my time lately.

I finally got the chance to mess around with the Quest. I swapped out the orings, battery, and adjusted the LPR. I'm using Monkey Poo and it seems to do the job pretty well. Is Dow33 or some other lube better for the Quest?
Also, Ive heard that Quests love lube...but how much is too much? Im used to putting very little lube on oring because Ive been using MacDev markers for so long. So what seems to be over lubing (to me) is foreign territory.
I put about 2 hopper thru it and it shot like a dream. Hoping Ive got all the gremlins worked out.

I love monkey poo- it is dow33 based I'm pretty sure. Dow 33 is just a standard grease formula btw. Stick with that it works great. "Quests love lube" is more that they like to be lubed often not that they like a bunch on at one time. When I'm lubing my quest I run lube over each oring so that the gaps between the oring and the groove it sits in are filled and lightly coat the metal parts. There shouldn't be globs or buildup, that would be over lubing.
I'd say lube the marker after each case you shoot since it only takes a minute to do.

glad you got it ripping
