rs wont fire. tried everything

I have a spyder rs i got off ebay. Used it once next time it wouldnt fire. I went and got a new rechargable battery still wouldnt fire. Took it to a local shop they told me board was bad, i bought a new tadao board and m7 chip. Installed and still wouldnt fire. Took it back to the shop and they said bad trigger switch. So now i order a new trigger switch and solenoid and figure well atleast all internals will be new. So i put the new trigger switch and solenoid in and it fires. So i go down to the local field to play, get through 3 games and no more fire. It will not release the bolt with any pressure on it. If i pull the bolt back and take pressure off the sear it will release. So the guy said it has to be a bad board. I order another tadao board and put it in and still no fire. It just wont fire with any pressure On the sear. What else could it possibly be?

Ok so after messing around with it i backed off the velocity screw and it started firing. So i pulled out the chrono and any thing over 260fps it will stop firing. I adjusted the palmers regulator up to 500 psi to get up to 300 fps but anything higher on the velocity adjustment and it won't fire. I treied different springs with same result. Anything over 260 with velocity adjustment and it wont fire. Any ideas?

Is your battery fully charged still?

I swapped it with my sons 9.6v battery with same effect. Mine worked in his. I have mine on charge now but we will see. What should the voltage be on a fully charged 9.6v spyder battery

There are guys here with way more experience with spyders than I but the clapper solenoid isn't part of the board is it?

no, the clapper (or solenoid) is the big metal thing in the frame above the board. It could be broken or damaged. I've had the pin separate from the disk, this will retain partial light function and dry fire but fail under "load" as your describing. From your last post I'm still unsure as to if you have replaced it as you said in the other post.

Most full pneumatic guns also have a solenoid but it redirects air, Spyders use a electic solenoid to push the sear.

Couple quick questions:

What is the name brand/manufacture of the battery?

Is there any debris in the solenoid that could create more friction?

Is there any debris outside or behind the solenoid that would prevent it moving all the way back and forward?

Is there any debris around the sear?

Are any of your bolt o-rings damaged?


If no to all the above and you have a decent rechargeable battery and do not want to switch springs do the following:
Adjust your spring tension to the point where the bolt will release reliably.
Adjust your regulator to a higher pressure to achieve proper velocity.


If you do not mind switching springs:
Adjust/swap out your main spring tension to the point where the bolt will release reliably.
Change out your valve spring (not the hammer/main spring) to a lighter version.
Adjust your regulator to the correct pressure to achieve proper velocity.
