My new used axe not firing help

I just got the gun as a gift and right now I'm trying to test fire it but it doesn't seem like its working. I haven't aired up the gun yet because my tank is out of air.

Go to 4:40 in the video my gun doesn't make that firing sound. I have it where the eyes are off and I only hear my trigger sound and nothing else. The gun came with the Boss bolt and short spring installed.
Any help would be great also I'm still new to the whole electronic markers.
Thanks

I cleaned/reset the solenoid and now it shoots. But here is the next problem, it only shoots when I have the eyes off. I cleaned the eyes with a cotton ball and still doesnt work. Any ideas?

Are you trying to shoot it with something in the chamber? Like you say it will only shoot with the eyes off, when you try with the eyes on are you putting something in the chamber for it to sense?

Did you clean the eyes while they were still in the body or did you take the entire gun apart to clean them? I'd take the entire gun apart to ensure the eyes are clean if you haven't.

Besides that, check the board settings (or just reset the board). Also be sure to try a fresh battery.

Took the entire gun apart and cleaned it. I changed the battery twice and also did a factory reset. Still doesn't fire when the eyes are on.

It's hard for me to explain, but when I have the eyes on and there is nothing in the chamber then I pull the trigger, the LEDs light up different indicating there is nothing in the chamber.

Seems to me you have a problem with the eye circuit. When I get home this evening, I'll see exactly how my marker leds works.

So you've removed the eye board from the body and cleaned the eyes directly, tried different batteries, and did a factory reset? It's time to call Empire customer service and see if they can hook you up with a new upper board.
