Quest Problem

So I got a quest in a trade (was a WAS board) and I aired it up today to fire it and what do you know.....nothing happened. I turned the eyes off and still didn't fire. I checked to see if the eyes were getting a reading (even though the board was blinking green saying the eyes were on), but with my finger or a ball in the breach, nothing happened. On top of that, with the eyes off, the solenoid is not clicking. is this a case of a blown solenoid and bad eyes? Help me out please guys.

Most likely one of the wires to the noid is disconnected. The stock wires are too fragile, a new set is inexpensive, and very good quality - alternativepb.com

Yep, it could well be an issue with the solenoid/battery harness, or the wires attached to the solenoid. With the alternativepb harness, you get both items for $10 - you just need to be able to solder the new wires to the harness or know someone who can do it for you.

Hopefully that will resolve your problem, and if it doesn't, it is still a good investment in $10 (assuming you can get the marker working) as the stock wiring would fail at some point, and this way you fix the problem before it even happens.

Not quite sure what you mean by "although I get the eyes have a reading".

Are you saying that the LED colour changes depending on whether the eyes see a ball in the breech or not?

If the LED colour doesn't change, or the pattern doesn't change from flash to flicker (how the board signals that there is a ball in the breech depends on what board you have) then the eyes aren't working. Maybe that you just need a fresh batter or to clean the eyes, but it may mean that your eyes are broken and need replacing.
