If it is not detecting the ball when pointing toward the sky(the light will turn red) then you have one of the 1st batch of SLG's produced that have a defective bolt. Call DYE customer service and explain to them that you have a defective bolt that causes "rollback and breaks." They will then get you to send the bolt in and exchange it for a bolt that is the correct size.
If it isn't the bolt....then you should check to make sure your battery is new and check to see if you have defective ball detents. You can check the detents by putting your finger in the feedneck and feel if your detents are sticking out like they should. If they are defective...call dye and they should set you straight with some new spring detents. Or you can buy some upgrade detents.
with this quote I would like to disagree with you on how to see if you have a roll back issue with a SLG.
You started by saying "disconnect the air" INCORRECT
. You want the marker ot be aired up when checking for this problem. With any SLG the bolt sits further back in the breach when no air is in the marker. Once aired up the bolt will move into the resting position. Then do the test. Also do this with a few paintballs in the breach and use your hand to hold the paintballs as if it was a stack from your loader. I get many calls a day about this situation on the fact that the marker is not aired up when the test is done.
Just a second note. The bolts were not to short. The length was corerct but the bolt face was cut to large. So the ball would roll into the bolt itself.
