Epiphany won't shoot

Some back story: the programming button broke off the board at some point so after the last day I played (gun worked great) I had a buddy take it home to solder on a new button. After putting it on he messed with the dwell. When I got it back the other day I aired it up, it shot twice while I went to chrono. Got out on the field and it wouldn't shoot. Hit the trigger a few tomes and it shot once, then no dice. I can hear small puffs of air when I pull the trigger for a little while after I air it up and the light blinks. I increased the dwell but that didn't help.

I've replaced the battery and done a full tear down including the noid. Any ideas? Is the board toast?

Up the dwell more?

Other than that make sure your o-rings are good and you're all lubed up.

Check the dwell and ROF delay settings. The stock Dwell is 52 clicks from the bottom and the stock ROF delay is 50 clicks from the bottom.

Personally, I have not come across this problem, but I would check all my board settings first. If that didn't work, then I'd make sure that there's nothing preventing your bolt from moving forward such as a torn o ring that may be jamming it in place. Then check your microlines and banjos to make sure that there is nothing that filled them up (i.e. Dirt, lube, Etc.). The biggest fear is that the solenoid may be done. I'll look into a way of being able to test whether or not the solenoid is functioning. I believe it should be easily tested with a multimeter and checking to see what the reading of the current and resistance are. Good luck solving this mystery. If there's anything else I can do for you, feel free to post again or shoot me a pm.

Update: My issue was a bad battery. I had swapped to a new one but that didn't
help and after trying everything else I swapped out to another new one and it started working fine.

Fantastic! Personally, I use the spyder 9.6v rechargeable batteries because they can charge up to approximately 11-12v and last atleast a whole day of playing.
