check your wires out make sure there not pinched or nothing. then also change the battery.

Don't worry about when it turns on. Does it function correctly otherwise?

LED Patterns:
The blinking red LED behind the Ion jewel denotes the status of the board during gameplay (green if UK board).
Non-Vision mode: two rapid blinks each second (blink blink, pause, blink blink).
Vision mode, ready to fire: continuous blinking, four times each second (blink blink blink blink blink...).
Vision mode, no ball loaded: one blink each second (blink, pause, blink, pause)

if you've ever taken apart your ion, you'll notice on the board is the eye wire and the 2 connectors. one leading to the eye board. and the other leading to the Curcuit board itself.

Check if those are both firmly connected(do not pull on the black wires. there REALLY sensitive. if you don't see better results. then see if you have a loose connection with the black wires(i believe theres 5 of em. if you need a new eye wire then go to your local shop. the eye wires are about 5-6 bucks.

if its your eye boad it its most likely mis-aligned.

Tell me your results after to do this.
Why bother? when you can run and play paintball!

If you can't figure out the problem don't worry about it.
With a good loader and detents you won't chop anyway.
My gun was blind for about 4 months before I got off my *** and bought a new eye wire.
I chopped once.
