My battery harness broke to my Quest when I opened it up to change the battery. I ordered a new battery harness and replaced the broken one. So now I tried powering up my quest and it goes on, but once I turn it off it won't power back on. I've done this multiple times with different brand new batteries with the same results. It turns on the first time then it won't power on again. Any help would be appreciated. I'm hoping my board isn't bad because I've already put around $60 on repairs, and I haven't even owned it for a month.

Ok, heres more info. It has a was board. When I turn it on it, the Led goes yellow, then blinking green, then blinking red in about five seconds and it just stays blinking red. If I turn it off, it won't turn back on for a couple minutes or I just have to unplug and plug back in the battery, for it to turn back on. I'm 95% sure my board is bad, but I thought I should double check before buying a new one.

Did you try unplugging the eyes? Might be a short there.

I have a WAS board. Send me $7 (I am in Canada) for shipping and it is yours.
PM me for Paypal address.

From my research I know WAS boards had a tendency to go bad but I'm not sure if yours is dying or not. I have no experience with them.

Thats awesome that xceolite is willing to part with his. If WAS isn't your cup of tea I also have a lucky board you can try.

I unplugged everything plugged it back in, no luck. Like I said, I'm sure the board is trashed, and I have little or no knowledge of electronics on a paintball marker, and I was checking to see if anybody knew a board reset or something.

If you PM me your e-mail address, I can send you a copy of the Quest manual which includes WAS board instructions, and can also send you the board specific manual.
