Valhalla Viking Board down

Hey I see not a lot of traffic around here anymore. After 6 years I have gassed up my Valhalla viking and found it doesn't work anymore.

Any ideas on how to bring this thing up to date? Or should I give up on it and sell???

Any opinions?

Usually it's just the screen that dies on the Tadao boards. You may be able to play with it as is, but won't be able to change the settings on the field. If you have the USB version, you can still change them with a computer that way. Stock '07/'08/Etek Star boards work, but have become hard to find. There's several aftermarket options as well.

I actually know of a place that had a decent amount of stock 07 ego boards. I did that for my frenzy frame and it works great. I think it cost like $75.

Matt and i wish we had known the Tadao boards we put in there would have gone out. They all do with enough time. I would look at a virtue board. That is what i put in my Valhalla.

I'll make you guys as many pics as you want.

And yes the Tadao board is STONE DEAD. I metered it everywhere and no luck super bummed about it... BUT where there is a will, there is a way...

I used to be paintball 24/7 but now I am very out of touch can anybody point me in a direction where I can order a Virtue board?

I thought about the selling thing.. and man I am OLD SCHOOL and a modding junkey which now apparently isn't that cool anymore I guess? When I bought this marker it was the ULTIMATE everything all wrapped up into one perfect package I thin i'll play my league this year with it and show the kids whats up. Yea i'll probably get a new one sometime but who can really not say they LOVE the AKA or an almost fully custom DMC... haha

If anybody knows of Virtue boards in stock I sent a few e-mails. I don't know how much luck i'll have with old stock. waiting on emails back

I had the same issue. Stone dead board. I ended up putting a Virtue in there and keeping an extra T board handy just in case.

Know anywhere there's still virtue boards in stock? Have people just been trolling the BST for them?

Can we confirm which ego boards fit as well? Its the 06-08's, right?

Virtue no longer makes boards, so it's either new old stock if you can find them or used. Don't believe it's the 06's. It's the 07's-08 course not exactly sure what the differences are in fitment and if it will make that big of a difference.

I also had problems with the fitment of the virtue boards though. The OG design of the frenzy frame setup with the Tadao board uses the micro switch, just guessing here bc it's been so long since I've looked at one, so forgive me if I'm wrong. But the Tadao board has both the break beam and the switch on the board. The virtue only has the break beam if I remember correctly and the trigger won't break the beam without some modification. Whereas I went with the ego 07/Star boards in all mine because it's set up exactly like the Tadao boards. So you could just drop those in and go.

You can easily swap in a 07 or 08 or SL8R stock board which has a LCD screen.

I bought a used one and posted the website where I got it earlier this year. Now they are sold out. No idea where you get one now.

I would try calling official planet eclipse warranty and repair centers around the country to see if they have any stock floating around.

I know I put an 07 ego stock board in mine. Just out of curiosity while we are on the board subject, I have been having some efficiency issues with my valhalla. Anyone want to share their ego board/pressure settings so I can get a better baseline to start a tune from?

I just bought a Valhalla also and then screen is dead, board still works. Is there away to just replace the screen? I also bought an 08 ego board off a PE tech and it doesn't really seem to fit dropping in and the solinoid wasn't responding with the board. Did you have to modify the settings or board at all to get it to work?
