Luxe problem...over 2 years

Shot about 3 cases then...does not shoot. Almost to say that the ball does not go in the breach but it does. When I turn my eyes off it finally does shoot but obviously does not shoot well at all.

I've been trying to fix it for over a year and a half to 2 years almost...I've been told to by new eyes, board, bolt, all which I did and yet still does not work.

Will post a video up if someone wants to see it/think it would help. Would LOVE to shoot this, been so long.

Thanks for your time/help!

Edit: Turns out my phone cant post videos...

Edit: Once I turn off my eyes, it will shoot the occasional ball

I have tried to contact a few of there techs and got no response. When I called them directly, someone specific was gonna contact me but never did ( about a year ago?)

Given that I just got my luxe back again from someone who claimed they were able too fix it, I will try again though.

Turns out my phone cant post videos. Something I forgot to add, once I turn off my eyes, it will shoot the occasional ball. Please remember that I did get two sets of new eyes ( one for free off a friend).

As for the feather touch, I did have one when this first happen, I took it out and it shot for about 5 pods, and then the same exact problem happen. Thanks for the video though!

So it will shoot with the eyes off..From what I read above.

I hate to say it, but that can only be related to the eyes or the board.

If a customer sent me a luxe and said it shot like crap I would do the below to it.

Clean and inspect all the powercore orings. Maybe even just replace them.

Remove FT screw and put the manifold screw flush for testing.

Clean the reg. I see about 1 reg a month that has been tore up inside from user error in taking it apart. Inspect the inside of the reg. Replace if you see any metal missing around the set screw area. Crappy shooting luxes normally have reg issues.

Check the breach oring for a super tight fit or loose fit on the bolts tip

Reset board

Check detents out

Charge battery all the way

Done

Thanks for the informing post. What sucks is that I did replace the eyes, and the board. I also have had a tech himself replace every o ring and clean out the gun. I quote " Your marker works fine now" is what I was told when I received my marker.

I will do exactly what you just told me though, thanks again.

Well if the tech said it was working fine that leads me to believe he probably shot it.
Maybe it's a problem with your tank?

Have you tried a new battery? If the gun shot fine for a few cases, then refuses to shoot, I have trouble believing it could be the tank.

I smell a voltage problem that leads to either the pilot or board
The pilot of a noid needs a set voltage and with what you say, seems to be following in that path
Or a battery issue with one of the cells not properly maintaining its upper limit in voltage constant
