Help Empire Prophecy on DP G4 not feeding

Ok here's my problem. I just received my hopper which is a V2 Empire Prophecy. Put it on my DP G4 and I go out to shoot it, but I'm skipping shots on semi mode. Even tried full auto no luck. I'm using a 4500 HPA tank. Only mod to my gun is the TechT L7 bolt. If I turn the eyes on I will be able to shoot a few times then a ball can't go into my breech so I can't shoot. I have to shake it around so it'll fall in there. With eyes off I will be shooting and skip shots. I shoot once or twice blank then a ball will be able to fall into the breech. My settings on the hopper are

Speed: 6
Sound: 3
Stack Monitoring: 2
RF: Off

What are you guys setting your modes to? Any help will be appreciated.

Im shooting a Mini and had to boost Sound Activation to at least 5 for it to stay feeding. I havent messed with any other options but it seemed to do the trick to keep the balls coming. From what you describe tho it seemed It was the exact same problem I had and SA was defaulted at 3 so I changed it to 5. Hope this works!

Its shame they dont have those defaults right outta the box. It would have gave me a lot less frustration if they did. Also I was able to aquire a RF today off Ebay new for like 20 something bucks. So if you dont have one already dont forget to check that out for a possible cheap add on that im sure helps.

boost your sound activation to 5, then make sure you have lubed your bolt alot, because its an oringless bolt it derives alot of air movement and needs to be lubed at all times, i had the same problem with my dpg4

The last setting is RF, you want that set to "2" for off (1 is on), unless you have a RF chip/board installed in the Prophecy and your Gun.

So it's 5,5,2,2

Sorry, but nope. 2 flashes is on, 1 flash is off.

Pages 16-18 of the manual here http://www.paintballsolutions.com/pd...al_w_cover.pdf

Specifically the end of page 18 talks about locking it into sound activation by ensuring the led only flashes once.

Why do people do this wanna-be hk thing? I mean hk people dont even play paintball, they just whine and start drama while wearing the ugliest stuff. Seriously you find light blue and pink to be attractive colors for your parents 1500 dollar investment (your gun/marker)? If you want to whine keep it off the field and save it for the internet; O wait! THATS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO! Haha, if you don't play then don't whine.


I want your G6r parts and upgrades, sell them to me, because you wont get anything for them if you sell/trade them with the gun.

Thank God for Simon. I just recently bought a prophecy and had it on 3,3,2,1 settings and I was using my mini.. twice my hopper wouldn't feed which led to me getting bunkered very badly.. You can now play connect the dots on my back.. Just tested out the 5,5,2,1 settings and my mini sings...
