I have some bad news......My fusion doesn't work

Ok, I regret to inform all of you but my fusion does not work, it is the noid and the board, they do NOT work in cold weather, I contacted DP about this and I hope they will handel it fine. Does anybody know how to fix this, the optical trigger switch and the noid mess up in the cold, if anybody knows how to fix this, that would be great. REMEMBER, it only messes up in the cold, it works fine in warm weather so if I first shoot my gun, it WILL work for about 200 shots, after that I have to take it inside for about half an hour and then go and shoot it again it will work for about another hopper.
thanks and do you think it is just my noid and board because nobody else is having this problem. Also, the weather right now is about 40 degrees, maybe a little under so I need some help ASAP.
thanks

Try to wrap the grip up in cloth or something like that. Just to try to keep some of the warmth in.

Really that sucks

Or another thing i already sugested is to build a in gripframe heater

Have you tried another battery? I know the cold weather can kill a weak battery. If so, keep us updated with what DP says about this problem.

Just currious, where abouts do you live and what temp. is it there?

It works fine at 40, I played at 20. Just make sure you're not using CO2 .

Roanoke virginny? I went to a soccer tournament there once. The county wouldn't let us play on thier fields due to insurance, but the club (and the refs) gave the go ahead to play, but then people from the county got mad, and the whole thing got bagged. 18 hours of driving gone....

I hate roanoke....

Try a good battery, like engergizer. make sure all of the connections are good. I highly doubt this but, in theory, if something was barely touching in the warmth, then it got cold, the metal would shrink, and could end the connection. not likely, but still

i know its old but...

take off the grips and put electrical tap across the gripframe where the grips go on,this keeps it warm and keeps water out!

I honestly figured you was further north, the past month here its been between upper 30's and lower 70's (gota love southeast missouri weather!) and in the upper 30's I havnt had any problems. I would highly look into your battery, seems batterys have caused quiet a few problems with fusions lattly. I just dont think its the cold, it almost has to be another problem.

I've played in cold weather before man, way lower then 40. It works fine in the cold, so no it isn't. the noid doesn't break down on me when I play on 20* or 15*. 40 is considered warm to me

I'm not upset with you or anything rhino. I'm just upset at myself for buying one of these, but mostly at DP for lying straight to my face (on the phone.. techincally not to my face but you get the point) and not coming through for me once. They still aren't willing to help me out and the only thing I can do is try to persuade people to save their hard earned money for something they can actually enjoy.
