Eye Problems

Just picked a used Luxe. Havnt put any air or tried paint at all because I havnt been to the local field due to world cup. However, I did boot it up and saw with eyes on its as if the eyes are disabled. I can just shoot normally with the eyes on. I wiggled the connection between the eyes and the board to make sure the band was seated correctly and I did notice that the eyes would start working, however, they would not recognize a finger in and out of the breach. It was as if the eyes would enable but not recognize. Also, sometimes the eyes would do both situations, in and out, with the grip frame on.

I did:

Clean the eyes, clean the connection point of the eyes and board (just made sure it wasnt gunked or corroded or shorted out), and tried many different combinations and remedies...

I did not:

...

Is this a board issue or an eye issue? I'm more leaning toward eyes just want an opinion before I order a fresh set. OH and battery is at 50% is that common for eye failure? Thanks guys

Corey

It's your eyes. Either that or the eyes are not seated properly within the covers. Brand new eyes are 20-30 dollars so it won't be too expensive to replace.

I checked the placement... I forgot to mention that. Im going to try cutting the band tip which connects to the board so it has a fresh connection. It always worked on my other guns so im going to try it with this set. sounds like I have nothing to lose.

Is there a prefered site to order eyes (any Luxe items) from?

You shouldn't cut that. The contacts you can either use an eraser on it to clean it or lightly scuff with some fine sand paper. Just lightly scuff it to expose metal. Cutting it is most likely not very good for it. Just a thought.

edit: Before reading the rest of my post, turn the gun on and lightly push down on the little black box the eyes plug into. now read the rest

mine did that. ordering new eyes didnt help, as the eyes werent the problem. Its the connector to the board. get some electrical tape and fold it over a few times, and place it between the grip and the connector (the little black box thing the eyes plug into). It wont slide during play, and the eyes will work great.

if you want a perm. fix youll have to send it into dlx or solder it back on yourself.

I ordered eyes anyways.

Now heres the question. Do both sides of the eyes light up red or just the left. I also noticed black burned marks on the right side of the ribbon and the right set of the eyes do not glow red. I believe this is why they register in and out of operation and dont recognize an object in the breach regardless if the eyes read as functional.

So I will try new eyes... if not then I will send it in and get a new board and some tech work done.

Tried the push the "black box" where the ribbon plugs in. Mine is brown and it did nothing.

What the cutting does is that the ribbon sometimes is manufactured long. you do what you said to do and cut the very end with the contacts off just a tad and it helps out a lot. It doesnt hurt the eyes at all.

Thanks for the help and I will update when I get my eyes. I googled but the only site that came up was Oringmonkey so I ordered from them and got a rebuild kit too

only one side lights up when a ball is in the breach both will light up. You can probably call Daryl and see if he can solder a new connector onto the board

you can still shoot obviously without the eyes but in some cases there can be barrel breaks. My old video displays the eyes off while shooting
