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.
