Wait you gotta better explain this. To be honest i dont know what you said.

Like is it randomly turning on? or turning off?

I bet your battery harness is messed up. Time to replace it.

Wait, so which is it?
Is it
1. After the gun is turned off, it can't be turned on again until the battery is removed and you wait a few minutes?
or
2. Every time the battery is removed it takes several tries to re-install a new battery?

Sounds like there's a short somewhere on the board that's causing something to act as a capacitor and make the board malfunction until the charge is dissipated, thus the "having to wait" part. Have you ever taken the board out of the gun?

Take a look at the board and make sure there's nothing sitting on it like a shard of metal or something else that could short out any of the components. Also check and make sure that none of the diodes are bent or touching in a way that they shouldn't.

If you have one of those compressed air cans for cleaning out computers you may want to take the grips off and give everything a spray.
