Does it cycle every time you change the lube?
Is it stuck in a non-cycling position?
Does it ever recover from the stop position if you continue to shoot it?
Has he ever lubed the solenoid?

Just a few things to help narrow it down.

never lubed the noid but thats rarely the issue, its more of like the balls not feeding into the breach causing a error. every time we shot it off and turn it back on, u get a like 30 ball stream and the lights flash again. pretty sure its the detents just feeding the ball funny, idk i had the same exact issue with my geo 3.1.

pretty positive its not a cycling issue, i can turn the eyes off and it will constantly fire.

Then it may be a fault with the eyes. Check the leads to ensure there is no crimping or fraying then clean out the area where they eyes sit, clean the eyes themselves, then try again. If it persists, replace the eyes.
