PDS problem :(

Ok, the gun is brand new and I havent even been able to air it up yet. But I pull back the bolt and have the PDS on and pull the trigger and I still hear the solinoid clicking =/. It was working a few days ago. I do not know what is wrong . Any suggestions on what to try?? Or does anyone know what is wrong?? Help is appreciated.

Thx

Sniz

You may have a pinched wire somewhere or a loose one? Perhaps on the back of the switch?

oh... buddy... I know nothing about wiring. This could be trouble. I'll take it to my shop and HOPEFULLY they will be able to do something. I doubt it though, they don't know very much about electros =/. Thx for the SERIOUS answer Goldie.

Thx for the suggestiong Greg

I'm with Goldie on this one... if you have a wire being held in place by some shrink tube and it's broken it will make contact, but then if you shake or even change the angle of it, it won't... can be real fun... lol

Any shop should be able to do it... should is the keyword here...

Any local electronics shop should be able to do it for ya too

pds wiring

I just got done fixing a marker with the same problem. This was a newer B2K2, with the battery in the tray. I think the B2K3 have the battery in the grip? (sorry never seen one yet). Anyway. the battery was crunched in there right in front of the PDS wiring switch, and one of the wires fell off the PDS switch when changing the battery. Anyway, reattached that wire and it was fine again.
So if your brave or taking it to the shop, there should be two wires on the PDS switch, one might be dangling or loose like was said.

Try loosening the eye covers, you might possibly have a pinched wire there, and have you shot paint thru it, yet or not?

Mmmmk, its not the wiring, Its the fricken battery. I was never told that you have to invest money into batteries. So I was using Everlast batteries. THose POS didnt make the PDS work. Now I have a duracel and all is good. I feel like a *******.

Lol, I wish I could, but I can't just yet. My THOR is also messed up. THe pin is too long so it pushes on my tank prematurely and air goes everywhere. So until I get that fixed I really don't have my gun in working order. Also Im stilling playing with my evo to get it working. Until then! My sig stays the same!!!

Thor problem

I had a THOR, and when my screw in tank was put on, it would also exhaust air prematurly. PMI told me to put a oring or two inside the ASA to back it off enough to allow the pin depressor to work properly. Yes it is WAY to long IMHO. What I did as a more permanent solution is dremel down the pin to an acceptable length inside the ASA, and it was perfect after that.

shop

sure you could probably do that. Just disassemble the reg and take the body to a shop and have them sand it down. You don't want to take the reg internals because it will get metal shavings in it.
