Serious Problems.

Alright,

Recent, well almost 2 months ago, I traded my Etek2 for a Quest.
The guy left, I aired it up, ok, no leaks... I shot a few... no problem.. then as I was playing, it just stops shooting, I replace the batteries, but in the rush, I guess I ripped the already super-torn battery harness, and I was tinkering with things and it was a windy day, and I also lost the solenoid wires.

Long story short, I got a new harness... ($25 + $27 shipping to Canada...)
And a blown solenoid with the wires still connected.

Now I'm at home, fiddling with the stuff, but I cant seem to get it to work,
I haven't soldered the wire to the solenoid, but with my past experience with guns, the gun usually fires, or atleast shows some signs of itself working with the wires touching.

I don't know what is wrong! The wires from the harness that connect with the wires of the noid are green and black, but the one's from the noid are brown and black, is that the problem?

When the gun is on, the LED continuously blinks green and blinks blue every trigger pull, and nothing happens when I put my finger in the breech (eyes).

I haven't 'balled since that day, and I'm really getting worried.

Help would be GREATLY appreciated!

In electronics, the black wire is always negative. The brown is positive.

Where in Canada are you?

Before you do anything else, I would definitely try soldering on the solenoid harness, connecting it as xceolite has described.

Don't know what board you actually have, but the Quest WAS boards were notoriously finicky (and some were downright unreliable) and would play up if there was any type of issue with the harnesses, and other Quest boards also seem a bit sensitive to the condition of the harnesses, though not to the same degree. Having the solenoid harness soldered on may help in that respect.

With that done, we can hopefully then see what is really going on.

I think I pinned the problem down.
I'm missing the connector that connects the noid connector and the harness connector together...

Any alternatives? Or anyone have a spare?

if you go on ebay you can get a new board, battery harness, and eyes all for under 40. The board is top notch. I reccommend it if you cant find a cheaper alternative.
