Evo turns itself off after 1 shot

Howdy! I've had 4 or 5 Evos, and I've never had this particular problem. I bought a used Evo super-cheap that came without the original rechargeable battery. I tried several different 9v batteries in it (including a brand-new Duracell Ultra) but when I try to operate it (no air), here's what happens:
  1. Hold ON button for several seconds
  2. display turns on, reads 0000, eyes on
  3. tap ON button once more, red light comes on.
  4. pull trigger (with eyes on or off, doesn't matter)
  5. solenoid clicks once, display briefly reads 8888, gun turns off

Any ideas? Could there be a short in the wiring or the board? Can PMI still repair Evos?

Seems to be some type of short, or a capacitor.. PMI should still take care of it. Another plausable explination could be the ground wire. It could be out of place or missing, after all. The gun is used.

reset the board. take out the battery and hold a nail across both terminals at the same time for a few seconds. put the battery in and see what happens

dude thats really screwed up, i think its prolly some type of short, i had a similiar problem with my friends spyder imagine, cept he gave it to this guy for repair, and the guy somehow fried the board (dont ask how) but hte leds are all screwey and it shuts off after the first shot too. In any case, i just bought a T board for 20 bucks new off ebay, u can get htem pretty cheap, buy it now is like 40 bucks, so if u dont wanna mess with it, boards r cheap on ebay

Email Pmi they will usually repair or replace it for a small charge if anything.

Yep, it was a board short. Sent it to PMI (really KEE) and they fixed it free, super-fast turnaround too.

Now it's got another issue - it's decocking after every shot. The o-rings look good. I tried it at several pressures and it just won't recock. I'll take it to my local shop, see if I'm using the wrong size or durometer o-rings.

re:

three things to check real quick.one see if the main spring has not been cut and is blue in color.the red spring is too stiff.the hammer o-ring on the hammer should be blue in color if it the new type from pmi. check your reg pressure it should be around 350 psi for evo to start to shoot right if it in the 500-700 psi it to high.
