Vapor 2014 Eye trouble

Having a problem with my vapor where the gun cycles a couple times 20 bullets and then shows that there is no paint in the breach. However I know there is, I have tried to clean the eye covers and that has not worked.

Anyone have any help?

I dont think the 2014 vapors have eye covers. If referring to pre 2014 vapors, clean the eyes and install new battery (duracell or energizer recommended). Also check that you did not accidentally press the eyes off button (yellow button on back of grip frame) during play.

Ok it get weird now. So I did some testing, what i found out is that if i load the balls manually through the feedneck it works and eyes read it. Then if i run the balls through my hopper it will beep and say no balls. Then if i turn the eyes off sometimes it wont shoot(balls dont leave chamber) then others it will keep shooting perfect (leave chamber). So i dont know if it my hopper or the eyes. By eye covers i ment breach cover looks like the ones that come with dms.

It sounds to me like your hopper needs new batteries, or it's not working properly(settings not proper for this gun) or that the flow of paintballs is hanging up on something preventing them from dropping into the chamber consistently.

Try the eye sensitivity settings on the vapor and check your hopper too.

Tried with different rotor so it's not hopper. Tried different paint. Also sometimes if I place my hand over the feedneck it will read it as if there is a ball in the chamber and fire with eyes on.

Ah yes......the woes of reflective eyes combined with an eye pipe. Huge design flaw. I have no clue whey they went with those on the 2014 version. I think hddndrgn may be right. You might have to play with the eye sensitivity setting. It sounds to me like it's not reading properly.

You'll have to change the sensitivity then drop a ball in over and over until you can get it to see every ball. Make sure you don't have any grease or film on the eye pipe. Clean it with alcohol. Remember not to do this in sunlight or the eyes may be confused by the sunlight. I'm not sure if more or less light sets the eyes off but it sounds like less light so you may have to start by dropping sensitivity. I could be wrong though.

^^ i agree. If the eyes are set too sensitive, the board may register the bolt as a ball in the breach during the bolt cycle and think the bolt did not fire which results in the board registering an eye malfunction. other than that i would recommend buying new eyes and see if that fixes the problem.
