Wish my Z2 worked properly =\ It only worked proper for 1 case and then murdered itself. It wouldn't feet at the proper speed, it wouldn't feed if it was at any sort of angle, made me angry and I switched to rotor.

Knowing these settings now makes me wish I could have tried to play with them to see if that was the problem my Z2 was having cause I love the Z2 over the rotor...

Just to balance out some of the hate, My Z2 is flawless. I put 10+ cases of glass-like paint through mine over the winter (Summer formula paint + cold = breaking from chest height 10/10 times)....and I didn't have a single issue other than paint breaking from taking a hit to the hopper.

That's surprising. The settings are part of the code that is put on the chip as it is manufactured. What is likely to have happened is that as you released the final button it stuck slightly or you accidently pushed it one time and it took that as a new setting input.

If you have a modern gun with a decent eye system and board code it's unlikely that a low settings will cause you to have issues with paint breaking. It's more likely to just affect consistency.

Thanks guys. Usually on the forums you only hear from the haters and people having problems. The silent majority for whom everything is going well are rarely so vocal. Understandably, but it is nice to hear from those that are happy once in a while.

AH I see. Good to know someone from your camp is helping the kids over there too, I thought you guys concentrated solely on PBN.

BTW, is Simonized back up and running now?

Just got my Z2 back from Kee now! I turned down the speed to 2 and was shooting the paint that originally ruined my hopper. No breaks, no problems!

Simon, you have renewed my faith in the Z2 by putting these settings out there. Hats off to you for listening and reacting to solve your customers' problems.

Just to clarify: After we've switched the setting to the desired number of orange blinks, do we just turn the hopper off to save the setting?

Wait until the loader blinks the setting back at you again before switching the loader off to make sure it is saved. If you turn it off before it blinks back at you after entering a setting it will not save.

My entire team (~13 people) all have Z2s. Absolutely no problems, as far as breaking paint, or anything like that.. Err, well one person has problems with the speed feed coming open when he dives. He just sucks at diving.

Question regarding the hidden easter egg and self-diagnostics and autotune.

If one enables the easter egg feature does the Z2 no longer autotune? If one does not like to fiddle around with manually configuring settings, can the easter egg be turned off (in short revert back to originally shipped configuration without easter egg enabled)

The autotone will autotune everything to the settings that it has currently. It is completely independent of the easter egg feature and ability to adjust settings.

If you adjust a setting and want to go back to factory settings, you have to adjust it back to factory settings.

If you set the speed to 1 and then autotune it, will check all the sensors and make sure that it is running correctly for speed 1.

Does that answer your question?

Would you recommend autotuning after changing settings to make sure everything runs smooth?
