Is the solenoid plugged in?
Wires look ok?
Do you hear the solenoid click at all?
Have you tried firing with eyes off?

Yes all the wires are plugged in. I have tried firing with the eyes off but it still wouldn't shoot. Wires look okay, but not sure about the clicking sound. I don't think it does.

The 07 ego has two firing points, one uses the dip switch the other uses optics, i've found the optics not to work so well so I use dip switch, this may be your problem OR your dip switch is broken. good luck!

Dip switch? I think he means micro switch. And one other thing to check since it's and 07 is the top grip frame screws because they have been known to damage the solenoid if you over tighten them.

I got it working.
It was on the optical switch and the trigger wasn't breaking the beam.
I switched it to the micro switch.
Thanks all!

Glad to see you got it working! The opt mode isn't that great if you can't tell haha. Sorry about the dipswitch confusion.

There isn't anything 'wrong' with Opto... you just have to be more careful with your trigger adjustments.

That being said, every PE gun I own/friends own, I switch to microswitch activation. And I turn off Double Click while I'm there.
