Etek trouble

Ok so im having some issues with my etek. It has a Star frame and Lazer eyes. I air it up and it only fires sometimes. The noid only clicks sometimes when its not aired up too. And the eyes malfunction about half the time. I have changed the battery, oiled the bolt, cleaned the gun, and checked the wire connections, and no fix. Any suggestions? Thanks

Have you changed your grips or grip screws? Look at your noid and see if a grip screw may have pushed the casing in a bit.

Try another battery, double check the connections. Make sure your wires aren't pinched. Check the noid for damage.

I took the grips off. The noid looked ok, but im not sure. How would I go about checking/fixing this?

edit: Wires arnt pinched, and the noid has a few tiny scratches, but itsnt pierced

I know someone recommended already to you to change the battery but I would say that too. Please do not use rechargable battery. Sounds like you have a battery issue or trigger set up issue.

I wasnt using a rechargeable battery. I was using a regular alkaline 9v. I swapped it out for a brand new battery also and there still was the issue. I was thinking it was the trigger, but it doesnt always fire even when the grips are off and I push down on the microswitch.

could be a faulty micro switch. I would recommend you to visit your nearest Eclipse Service Centre.

Yeah I guess I will have to do that since I have no Idea what else to check. Any idea how much that would cost for me to get fixed?
