Geo 3.1 Feed Issue

Paintball bubbas - I'm looking for some assistance before I send my marker to Planet Eclipse for troubleshooting. Geo 3.1, stock PSP 12 settings, semi, IV core, Dye Rotor, Ninja 68/45. When "getting on the trigger" / laning, the marker stops firing. It can either be half a loader or almost instantly. I never receive a BBS malfunction. When the marker stops firing, I still receive the ( ) indication on the display with no ball present. I need to tip the marker upside down and pull the shark fin to clear the feedneck to continue firing it. With the eyes off, I am able to lane, but I end up shredding paint. I have tried the stock bolt, both tips, and the IV core with both tips, along with replacing the eyes as well as the ball detents. The one thing I noticed which I am not sure is abnormal or not is the bolt actually hits the ball detents, and they are stuck in a more forward position (looking down they breech, the tips are not pointed at each other). I hope this issue makes sense, and I'm hoping one of our paintball aficionados can shed some light on my plight.

Thank you, and sorry for the novel. Standing by for questions.

strangely I've had this issue where the ball wasn't going into the breech and its a simple fix. Your over tighten the feedneck and it doesn't need to be too tight. That's if I'm reading this right that you aren't getting any paint feeding into your breech.

Thanks for the reply Clark. I'll try loosening the feedneck, and I'm hoping more people stumble across this and offer some insight.

As stated before loosen the feedback up a little and you can also turn up the tension on the rotor as well.

Hopefully that's it I had it with my gsl and spire but then got rid of the spire because it was jamming and went back to a Z2

sounds like the marker is starving, I've seen too many rotors jam up which is why I've never used one, the spire is an agitator feed system which means it is nearly impossible to jam, I also have a tfx which has never let me down

When I was troubleshooting, I tried two Dye Rotors. I haven't gotten around to adjusting the feedneck as recommended (been extremely busy). I will apprise you guys of my findings. Hopefully, it is simply loader related.

Yep, I've had it adjusted and everything to prevent it from jamming but nothing seemed to work. It was jamming 2-3 times a practice and I cant have that in a tournament because it was happening on my break shooting.

I've had issues in the past with rotors and certain brands of paint - Infinity was notorious for jamming. Have you tried other brands?

That's odd. Are you sure it was jamming or misfeeding? Do you have the spring ramp? I've had the same spire since they were released and minus the software update needed to stop the constant spinning...it's never jammed. Missed a couple shots here and there due to the feed ramp (spring ramp fixed that) and shooting with the marker tilted almost flat sideways. But it has never jammed.

Agreed, my rotors jammed with square paint but not my spires.

Hope to hear an update from the op

I did have a spring ram in it but motojunkie mentioned certain brands jamming with his rotor. Ive been using infinity and heat and that was jamming in the spire but nothing was jamming with my Z2.

Did you ever resolve this?
I experienced the same issue yesterday and the only thing to do was to turn my eyes off.

I've been primarily playing pump (gotta dish out the T2 love), so I haven't gotten around to messing with my Geo. I need to break down and clean my gear from this past weekend anyway, so I'm going to do some more troubleshooting on my Geo. Going to start with loosening the feedneck, and then adjusting my rotor.
