***Etek air problem... PLEASE HELP!!!***

My Etek is currently having a minor problem. I air up the gun and I have drop offs. I have adjusted the LPR and everything the dwell and restarted the settings back to stock. It is still having the drop off problem. The only thing I can think of is the regulator, asa, or maybe the hose is not long enough??? What I mean by drop off is I walk the trigger and about after 3 balls they go shorter and shorter and shorter and if I keep walking it then they will just roll out the barrel.

New battery, check and listen for leaks. Also, solutions could be changing the o-rings on the HPR, LPR and ram. Check the wire connections to the board and solenoid. And you didn't use grease on your ram did you?

sounds like your marker is starving on air.
First: make sure the on/off knob is not turned all the way in. Try it with only half way turning it it. Use fresh battery.
Second: if the first solution won't help. Test the marker with a different air system.
I believe this will help, let us know and we will go from there. Do not take the marker apart until you checked the On/Off adapter and the air system.
