Morning,
Typically, the most common cause of the issues that you have described is a struggling loader. Check that your has fresh batteries, is well maintained and is set up correctly for your marker first and foremost.

Just put in new batteries into my Spire and it's doing the same thing. Put a new battery into the marker. Reset the board. I have no idea what it is.

Is it giving you an eye fault indicator on the screen? Although the eyes are clean, make sure the eye holes in body are clean as well.

The speedball field here has little black rubber bits that can get into the breech of a gun via pods or diving. A local guy had a black chunk of rubber seat itself in the "eye holes" of his Geo3. It caused an eye fault regardless of how many times he cleaned the eyes.

Now it's not shooting with nothing in the breach. Step 1 finished!

Ok I fixed the cycling thing so it's not shooting with nothing in the breach but now it's just not going past 12.5 it's stopping at 10. Also when I turn off the spire, gun, and degas it, 4-6 paintballs fall out of the barrel.

sounds odd but check your detents they may be worn and not allowing the ball to seat properly in the breach causing it to take more time to read and slowing it down.

Also if you have access to a different loader try it. Tension may be too high or something causing the same thing as worn detents.

both sides should have detents. I'd be willing to guess that's your problem. Your massive spare parts bag will have extras. Replace both and try it.

yeah if you haven't replaced detents it's time. One probably broke and is allowing the ball to roll forward in the breech and reading faulty with the eyes slowing it down.

yes should be a few of them. Take the eye covers off and remove the one you have to see what they look like. Your manual should also have it in there.

good thing about these forums. Eventually a piece of key info comes out and the problem is obvious. With 88,000 shots it's probably time to maintenance the rest of the gun. Reg etc. if you have a local tech let them look at it.

Sorry. Lol. Finding out that balls were rolling out the barrel made it a soft ball.
