DM9-Full 1 second delay when trying to fire

Hey fellow paintball gurus, I have a DM9 (just purchased) with a virtue board installed and I'm having a weird problem with trying to test fire it. When I hold down the trigger, there's a full one second delay, then the gun fires. I've tried it with my HPA tank attached and without, both with the same result, which leads me to think it might be a problem with the board, but that's definitely just an assumption. When I turn the gun on, I get a fast flickering red LED, which is what I want according to the virtue manual. Eyes are working.

What I've tried so far:
-Replaced the battery
-I attempted to reset the board to factory settings by doing the following: I held down the trigger then turned on the gun, once it started cycling through colors I let it finish until it got to purple. I then held the trigger down for 10 seconds, but never saw a white light as described in the manual. The lights then cycled through all the colors again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If the eyes are ON, and no paint in it.
It will take a second to fire a shot. It's called a force shot.

Now if you are firing it with paint, then there is a eye delay setting you can change.

Just got off the phone with Dye and they confirmed the same thing. I shut the eyes off and seems to be working fine. Going to test it with paint when I get home. Chalk it up to a noob mistake. Thanks guys.
