Hello, just got a matrix about two weeks ago, and was wondering what the signs of a dead/weak battery are? I wouldnt want to take apart the whole gun thinking it was something else when it was only the battery.
Thanks

Jaysun

If your barrery is dead or very near, the solinoid will chatter, it sounds as if your gun is going full auto. but the bolt dose not move far enough to load and shoot paint

Try licking the battery, if it stings, then its still good, if it doesn't, then the battery is dead. Hooray for SCIENCE!

If your gun does really wierd stuff...It's your battery.

When in doubt, change your bettery. Jay

Why not try putting a new battery in? If that doesn't solve your problem then either take your gun apart or take it to someone who knows what they are doing.

well

not many of us welcome changing of batteries because it takes time, and i wanna do something else besides take out that little thing in the back, take off the back plate, and let the battery drop out. im too lazy...
