Mini GS going Full Auto with finger off trigger

Mini GS Stock Shockwave Board Stock settings, new batteries( tried 3 )

I'm thinking these Shockwave boards are not as reliable as they are made out too be, this will be my 3rd one if this turns out to be a board problem.

This started at LL7 when I had the Numech Prototype frame on the gun and I assumed it was an issue with the pigtail connection I was using in place of the daughter board.

Apparently not the case -

Once again raping my Mini for parts to make my GS work... this is becoming a rather annoying habit.

I am curious if this is going to be my eyeboard and not the shockwave - the Eyeboard was just replaced at LL7

Yup

Received the gun new from a local shop, powered it up, and after 10 minutes I heard a POP and smoke came out of the foregrip... dead.

Put in my Shockwave I had in my Jack Skellington Mini and it worked for 2 weeks. Took it out to try it in another guys gun at the field and it wouldn't power up, put it back in my gun - dead

Got the replacement from Kee for the factory one in it now, and it seems to be giving me problem. I have a backup board in my kit I will swap for tonight and report if I am still having the same issue.

Love the gun but I have been through 1 noid, 2 Shockwaves, 2 air transfer pistons, a poppet assembly, and the Eye board ( my fault ) so far.

Key has been awesome about everything getting me replacements, but... my original Mini I replaced the noid after about 80,000 shots... and that's it.

Definitely agree on this note, I don't own a GS myself but the amount of issues and complaints I've seen is unreal.

I hope it gets worked out for you

This is a very odd issue. I'm glad Kee has such good service, but the QC of these GSs is a bit suspect.

hilarious vid. Best part is the paint color makes it look like fire.

I'd get a new eye board, main board, battery harness, and solenoid, then install them all at once. That's the best chance of removing any chance of existing issue.

GS full auto

I'm about to be out of town for 3-4 weeks so I think the whole rig is going to make a trip to paintball solutions for an overhaul.

it sounds like its just the sensor board shorting out on the body of the marker. That would cause all the problems you described. Probably can be fixed by a simple piece of electrical tape on the top on the sensor board where the connector to the main board is mounted.

2 things -

Thanks KEE the Eyeboard fixed the issue...

thanks Sdzell - the solder points were pointed and it was indeed grounding out on the body - I put tape on it and have a backup for my toolkit if another problem arises.
