Its an original prophecy, and no amount of tapping or loud noises does anything. No studdering. The only thing that lets you know its even on is the light comes on.....also thanks for being unbelievably professional and helping a little no body with a product you worked on

What's your sound sensitivity set at and have you tried it on a marker yet? Also, does it advance if you push the A button when it is on? Lastly, is it in RF mode by chance?

That's ok, we are all paintballers and we all want our stuff to work.

Take the nose cone off and turn it on again, watch below the motor and listen.

Does the motor turn or buzz? If it does then check that the belt is on the pulleys.

Also check the wires to the top of the motor that they are connected well.

If not take a look at the area on the board next to the wiring harness connector on the other side and see if you can see a burnt looking patch usually around the oblong black component. If the motor doesn't spin at all and it isn't the wires then it's likely the mosfet and you need a new board.

Call and talk to the guys at paintball solutions. Be nice to them and see if they can help you out.

It's probably the sound sensitivity when I had a prophecy the same exact thing happened to me and it was just the sound sensitivity was low

also check the circuit board that attaches to the main board and make sure it didn't come loose. If it did press it flat and lightly super glue it.
