Unhappy invert mini help please

I recently bought myself a 2nd gen invert mini. Shot some reballs in the backyard and was shooting ropes. I was outa air for the next few days so i would just fire it without air. ust yesterday, i noticed that every battery i would put in, would flash red. I took apart the gun and saw that one of the connector prongs in the fore-grip were bent, so showed it to my dad and he fixed it no problem ( he does some kind of instrumentation for work) So call my friend over, the was very excited to shoot it. Turned it on, no eyes and pulled the trigger, no click... the light did flash though so i know that it was sensing my pull and that the trigger magnet was stil there, i even checked, but the solenoid did not click. Gassed it up, and then the air tank blew out the air like crazy, lost about 800 psi... so i tried resetting the poppit; turned the velocity adjustment at the back all the way in, gassed it up and same thing, but it wasn't as bad, i looked down the feed neck, and saw the bolt come forward everytime i gassed it up. How do i fix all this? I just want my baby to be up and running again

For the air leak it sounds like you are going to need to reset and clean your solenoid. Instructions on how to do that can be found here.

As for the batteries not working, I'm not sure what that could be. I would suggest taking the gun apart and making sure that the two HES magnets are still there. The one on the trigger should look like this:

And the one above the sensor board and under the feedneck should look like this:

That's alright then. You should follow the instructions here to reset your solenoid.

If you followed the instructions on how to service your solenoid, you should be good to go. If it does not work come back and we will help you figure it out.

Try putting your finger in the breach and blocking the eyes (without air of course!). Does the noid click then?

Have you tried adjusting the HES screw on the trigger to see if you can get it to activate?

Did you get the leaking problem solved?

it activates, because it flashes when i pull the trigger, my dad tested out the connections with this special meter, and there's no power to the solenoid, does anyone know how much power the solenoid needs to work?

alright so my dad is an expert with all this, the 2 top prongs on the connector in the fore grip go into the top 2 ones on the sensor board, that then goes the the solenoid, problem is, there is no power in the 2 prongs...

UPDATE

so the sources that go to the solenoid are labled S+ and S-, there is nothing on it when we tested it on the meter, now if anyone would know if this is normal or not would help out a lot

This is delving into things about the gun that I am not sure of. If someone knows that would help out BTe as well as me. My guess would be that someone will come around in the morning or afternoon tomorrow.

this sounds like what happened to my pmr, turns out I blew something in the solenoid but my shop owner rebuilt it and fixed the problem.
