I know some guys had problems with some boards if they were left too long and the battery drained totally.

Plug it in, cycle through the menus a bit, then turn the gun off but leave it plugged in. See if your battery indicator shows a low battery and charging at this point. If it does let it charge up. If that doesn't work try a factory reset while it's plugged in.

I left it plugged in and the charging animation shows, but when i turn the gun on, like this morning, it turned on for about 3 min than shut off and wouldnt power on. Battery is still showing a full charge, though.

EDIT - Figured it out, noid wires were cut and when they were soldered back together, it wouldn't get a good conection, so it would short the board out. new noid fixed the problem

Creed leak

I was unable to find a post about this specific leak with a quick search but hopefully you can help me with my problem.
I get the gun gassed up with zero leaks and take a few shots over the crono, still good. Then I shoot a good string on ramping and the gun develops a strong but low volume leak coming out of the hpr vent hole on the exterior of the foregrip body. I read somewhere that lp tanks(what I am using) will cause leaks so I will try a hp or mp tank next time I get a chance but I would love to get some help on the issue.

Thanks,
Keagen

You shouldn't get a leak with LP or HP tanks from the HPR. Sounds like you need a rebuild. Swap out the orings, lube it up and check the reg seat to make sure it's not damaged.

There is a vid to help you out.

You can try the hardware store. Just bring the front one with you so you can match up the threads and length.

Balls roll out of barrel. Checked detents and springs all look good and refitted tightened up the eye covers. Problem persists. Any aftermarket detents compatible?

Try taking the barrel off, and pushing the detents back with your finger nail. Do they retract fully flush and then pop right back out again? Sometimes they may look ok, but if the spring binds up they won't operate properly.

I can't see paint getting past the detents if they're working 100%. Unless you have some type of leak in your drive train and that air pressure is pushing paint past the detents. Or you have some insane pressure on the ball stack from your hopper.

Just using dye rotor. Looks as though they do not push out into the breach very far at all. one moreso than the other but not far enough like my other markers. no leaks no crazy pressures.

That means you have a detent issue. Those tiny springs are tough to place back in flush. Once you put the eye covers back on the springs can bend over, rather than staying straight and flexing like they need to. Just take the detents out and give it a few tries until you get them in properly. Test each one with your finger to make sure.

Of course all of this assumes you have the proper detents and springs in there.

I have a Creed that I absolutely love. It shoots so smooth and usually without any barrel raise. My son decided it would be fun to adjust my HPR and LPR with an allen key. I have tuned it back to where I feel it is close to shooting perfect but has a slight barrel raise which it didn't have before. Knowing this, to make it have no barrel raise which do I need to focus on adjusting HPR or LPR. At this time my HPR is 1 1/2 turns out and my LPR shows about one thread showing on the screw. It is not that big of a deal but I know it can shoot a little smoother than it is. Any help would be appreciated.

If you have a fully updated creed with the LP poppet you should be able to drop your HPR lower. Maybe 1 1/8th turns out. Then LPR around 1-1.5 threads out, as long as you don't have an LP tank in which case you may need to go a bit higher on HPR.

Of course this all assumes you're running the normal dwell setting. Your son could have changed that as well which would explain the need for your higher HPR setting. Use the settings above, then raise your dwell until you hit the 290's range. Then make minor adjustments with the LPR. You should have a dwell anywhere from 10-12ms although higher will be smoother obviously.
