Clone GTi - White LED when trying to power up, what does this mean?

Hi

I've had the new GTI board installed. However sometimes the marker won't turn on, instead when I press the power buttons, the LED is white on the board. Sometimes it will turn on as normal, so it appears to be an intermittent issue

As I'm not experienced with MacDev markers (more exposure to PE markers), I thought this could be a battery low warning, however switching to a new high quality battery the marker doesn't turn on every time

Any ideas what is wrong?

Thanks

Ok what may be happening and I've seen it a few times.

Try this test, loosen the phillips head screw that mounts the board under the trigger. It may be that the speaker was placed wrong and causing it to ground out. If you loosen that screw turn it off and on a bunch of times and see if it happens. If it didn't then tighten the screw and test again. If it dose happen then the speaker will need to be moved a tad bit.

Please let me know your findings so I can walk you through the next step.

Thanks for the guidance

Before seeing your suggestion I adjusted the board position by loosening the lower board screw by the USB port. Turning on and off worked appears to work every time

I had though this was just a problem with the membrane button. So in doing so maybe I actually moved the speaker

I'm now reluctant to move anything as it appears to be working OK now. Do you think I should do anything else or leave it?

Wow! thanks Eric.....it just so happens my new GTi has done this on a number of occasions......thought it was running my battery down while sitting. Anyway would remove the grips and stick a new battery in and it seemed to work. Anyway so I checked the battery I pulled out of it the 2nd time it did this to me and noticed the battery to be good so I knew it had to be something else. I'll check the board screws.....maybe unscrewing the grips removed some of the tension

This is a warranty issue and you need to get ahold of your nearest MD Warranty Centre to have it resolved

Got a problem with your gun? It's probably an o-ring or lube issue
