Eye problem

Hey everyone. Its been a while since i've been to this forum for help ( i have a viking, what do you expect) Anyways, I have a little problem that im hoping one of you could help me out with.

Yesterday while playing, my eyes didn't seem to detect the ball and wouldn't fire. I had to turn the eyes off for the day. Its been so long that I couldn't remember what a few ways of trying to fix it were.

I didn't have any broken paint in the barrel, but i cleaned the eyes with a q-tip (figured it would fire anyways if it was being blocked by paint?) I dont have a clear feedneck, so no light was getting into it. umm... i guess thats all i can think of right now. SO any help would be great

Thx ahead of time

Wojo

About the only thing that will affect the eyes is paint or being pinched. Did you take the tray or eye covers recently?

You can use a cam corder with night vision capability to see if the transmit eye is working.

If your using my code you can put the eyes in test mode to see if they both function.

A mobile phone cam will also do it, especially if set to 'night mode'. Just block the barrel and stick the phone over the feedneck.

I think i have a haunted Viking. I turned the marker on again today to see if it would fire with a ball inside. Still wouldn't do it. So I figured i'd take the eye covers off and see if I had any pinched wires. Took the eye's side off and noticed a lil bit of a pintched wire where it leads into the body. So now I was thinking that thats probably the problem.

I decided then to try the mobile phone picture thing in the dark. Nope, wasn't the wire because the eyes were working. You could see them glowin. I then decided to put a ball in there again since i knew the eyes were on. Of course it didn't. I was starting to go nuts trying to figure out what I would be.

When i was taking the bolt out it slipped down towards the barrel and the trigger clicked. As if the gun read that something broke the beam. So i put another ball in the barrel and now its working again.

Im guessing that maybe the lil pinch i do have might be affecting the way the eyes work. So im going to have to get a new one.

But thx for all the info, that camera thing worked great. Good idea whoever came up with that idea.


edit: the paint was red and yellow.

I think that only matters with reflective type eye systems.

I use to have the same problem on my 03. What's happening is the ball is getting pushed back just a little bit and the eyes can't see it. I did this mod which pushes your bolt up just a little bit and i've never had eye problems since.
