g3 iq problem. any help would be awesome.

So I bought my girl a g3iq and it has worked great for her, until yesterday. Its having some sort of eye issue. Shoots with the eyes off. Turn the eyes on. It won't shoot however I know the eyes are working. Hopper off eyes on. Strobes red, drop a ball/finger in the breach and strobes blue/green. So I know the eyes are recognizing a break in the beam, but it won't cycle. Its weird. Everything seems to be working correctly and has shot great up to this point. Any ideas guys? I'd love to get this figured out since she loves her gun. Please please please help me out.

Sounds like your eyes may need to be cleaned or you need a new set

OK new revelation. Ripped it apart. Cleaned and rebuilt. Gun recognizes my finger or ball in breach. Without air noid clicks. With air solonoid won't fire. So as far as I can tell every thing is working as long as air isn't applied. With air applied the gun will only fire with the eyes off. Any ideas

Humor me and turn the regulator pressure screw clockwise (inward) by half a turn and then air it up and try with eyes on.

Usually the noid will jam up when under high pressure. If the battery is dying or the board is junking out, the noid might not be getting enough voltage to cycle when the eyes are in use. Maybe turning them off allows the boards to allocate enough power to the noid. Ive never heard of this but its all i can think of.

Usually the noid clicking with no air but not working with air is an overpressurization issue but if it works with eyes off.. then idk.

Hmm I'm kinda thinking the board it going. Its a virtue. Do they tend to crap out?

I dont think so. What is the dwell at? Its a long shot that the eyes being off would allow the noid to get enough juice.

Every virtue board I have had has been fine.

I'm not sure how to adjust the dwell. OK new thing. If I air it up. Throw some reballs in the hopper. Walk the trigger after a few seconds of walking the trigger with the eyes on it will start to cycle. Its not consistent so I'm thinking its the capacitor on the board. I work with electronics(welding equipment) so I'm comfortable soldering a new cap. The inconsistent power to the noid kind tells me it likely the cap. I will keep you guys up to date.

The dwell is adjusted in .5ms or .25ms increments. I cant remember which. I know for sure its not done in 1ms increments.

The manual is wrong too.. so if it says .5, then its .25 or vise versa.

Even still, it shouldnt work with eyes off if its a dwell issue.

What type of Battery you're using? Or you can set your gun to 8-10 bps and just play with eyes off. Its not like your going to a tournament.

Got it! It was the capacitor. Had to do a little milling to fit the replacement as it was just a tad bigger but through it all back together and she rips. My girl is stoked. Happy wife happy life!
