Etha Problem

I'm sorry guys if you don't undestand me, I am from Argentina and my English is not the best...

I'm having troubles with my marker, basically it doesn't shoot. I have changed the battery three times, grassed the bolt, cleaned everything and nothing results.
I gave the marker to a friend and he told me that the reason might be the solenoid, but he is not sure... is there any form to know if the solenoid is broken?

Thank you!

I'm not a planet eclipse guy, but do you hear the clicking when you press the trigger? Put your finger down the feedneck and pull the trigger, is there clicking?

Make sure the solenoid didn't come unplugged from the board

That may not be the case, the Etha solenoid is air assisted, and may only click on a brand new fresh battery.

Hence the "may" in my statement.

I wish someone who owned an etha would chime in.

Eyes turned OFF to dry fire?

Micro-switch clicking when you pull the trigger?

Switch boards with a friend to test. Make sure his board works in his gun. Put your board in his gun. If his gun fires with your board...and your gun does NOT fire with his board...possibly solenoid. could be Micro switch though...so just double check that also.

yea you know what p8ntshoota is right, did you adjust your trigger by any chance, i was adjusting my trigger to a point it wouldn't fire, so there's another idea that your etha wont fire, because of the triggers micro-switch not clicking.

Mmm... No.. The microswitch is clicking.. I let my etha at service but that gut told me that the solenoid is broken and it costs $250.. (Remember I am from Argentina) do you know where I can buy another one? Only if the seller ships international
Or a local store...a friend of mine is going to USA by october. Maybe she would bring it to me...
Thank you guys!
