solenoid not clickin

so im messing around with my mini, taking it apart, puting it back together etc. Now this specific time i put it back together the solenoid is no longer clicking, when i turn the battery on it stays red for a a second then goes to a very faint blue. I have no idea what this means and it's starting to get really frustrating, i've nothing but problems with this gun.

Maybe follow the steps in the first reply window. It talks about the solenoid not clicking, and what the problem might be.

I checked the sticky at first, and it didn't help. But i re-disassembled everything and put it back together and everything works now so go figure

The solenoid in the minis are just plain weird. They will not always make a clicking sound and still sometimes work. Easiest thing to do whenever I rebuild/tune minis is reset the popit all the way from the back of the bolt assembly, turn eyes off, air up, and then back the velocity adjustment out 360 degrees, then chrono.

Did you also take the solenoid apart? The blue color is something the virtue board will do and I have zero knowledge of Virtue board functions.

clean the noid really well, almost no lube needed, seriously,like the residue left from having dow 33 on ur finger tehn wiping it off is enough. and maybe a little on teh internal oring, make sure the solenoid is set right, there is a good step by step with pics somewhere but i lost the link. get all old lube off the piston and the inside, and change tha battery, ull noid will click
