Sounds like a board issue.
Dumb question, but what's the level on your battery?

It's got a good charge. The batteries green. Another question. What size allen key does it take to remove the hpr internals and the hpr housing?

O.k. I got the board situation figured out. I bought my creed used on here and the owner said it was leaking and wouldn't fire. I followed the tech videos on vanguardusa.net and changed literally every single o-ring. The only thing I didn't change was the schrader valve, don't have one and dont thave the tool to change it. When I put the hpr back together I made sure the shims or washers or whatever they are on different each time, have all 7.
I made sure the hpr and lpr are balanced, 1 turn out for the hpr and just above flush for the lpr. I put everything back together and air it up and its leaking very badly from what sounds like the ram/bolt area. Any ideas?

You have a good o-ring on the poppet? I know you said you changed them all, but I have to ask because that sounds like the poppet o-ring.

Stuck against the switch, or are one of the screws preventing the trigger from hitting the switch?

Take the grips off and just very slightly back out the two grubs that hold the trigger in place. One on each side. Just barely move them, I bet you'll watch the trigger jump forward.

Just curious, do you have any idea what it might be if it's not the poppet o-ring?

Could be the schrader valve.

Hi, Im having a horrible issue with my creed, nasty leak through the solenoid
I have two of these and one works beutifully, the other not so much, I replace the LPR o rings as i have read this could be an issue. But it still leaks, i have also noticed that the LPR on my good creed moves alot more freely than the other one. I swear i have pulled it apart 100 plus times trying to solve this, my mind is exhausted, any help would be gladly recieved.

Chris

Could be a bad Schrader valve.

My demon's bolt doesn't cycle all the way, what it does is come forward all the way slowly, making a puffing sound, like it wants to shoot, stops, and then if I try to shoot again, it will exhaust air and cycle back at normal speed. I think it is the QEV diaphragm? I've checked all orings, and gaskets on the manifold and those are all in great shape, and re-lubed them all correctly. I watched eric on youtube with the bolt maintenance/diagnostics video so I know I have it lubed correctly and HPR is 2 turns out with the ninja 550 reg. All the settings are stock as well, Thanks for the help

If it is 'puffing' then it is most likely the diaphragm that has gone or needs re-seating.
I'm pretty sure it is 3 turns out though.. I tend to set mine with the pressure tester, then fine tune over a chrono - but I am sure it is 3 turns out on the QEV Demon and 2.5 on the new QEV-less Demon.

I wouldnt use SLP on it - LP at the lowest.

Is your bottle screwed in all the way? It is sounding like a 'recharge' issue where it isn't pushing enough air into the chamber quickly enough, causing shoot down / slow bolt. Are you using SLP as you mentioned it?

I pretty sure it is "puffing" I can't see any air coming out of the feedneck when I try shooting it, but it does make the little air sound, not just the noid clicking, I was just going by eric on youtube, he says 1-3/4 to 2 turns out on a mid pressure reg. If I walk it fast on semi or just get it to ramping, it does eventually cycle normal and sound normal but as soon as I let off on the trigger, bam its back to what I originally said, where it just cycles forward like it wants to shoot, then I have to shoot again for it to exhaust air down the barrel and cycle backwards at normal speed.

I would honestly change/check your diaphragm - sounds like this is causing the issue.
