I've tried the reset and it made no difference.

I've contacted Ape, just waiting on an answer.

Thanks.

Watch this video and use the 2nd method to take apart the reg (people tend to mess up the 1st method)

Status update from Machine Paintball's facebook page:

"We all have to love the people in paintball that seem to live off of starting rumors and creating drama. So out of love for those folks here's a short post about some of the things that have been circulating recently. I guess you could call this the official statement. Bullet points to follow...

- Machine is not closed, not out of business and not bankrupt. We however did move to a new facility that will allow us to do forged bodies for the Vapor. This will give us to cut down on the cost and the raw material waste of milling for the Vapor. Previously it took nearly 6 hours of milling to cut just the body for the Vapor from a solid block of billet aluminum.

- The long awaited loader is still in development, and we expect to begin testing soon. Yes, it sucks that it has taken so long and nobody is to blame for that but us. Yes, Machine failed to deliver on the promised date. To be honest we should probably have never announced that it would be done by Cup last season, that date was unrealistic. We fully intend to keep our promise to those of you who did register your Vapor in time to receive the free loader. But also be aware that the loader will be released when we feel that it is production ready. It has to meet our standards for performance, and appearance.

- MAP and all dealer pricing will be addressed and corrected accordingly. We listen to you and we will respond anytime that ideas and suggestions make sense for you, the customer and for Machine.

- We have stopped production on the current version of the Vapor. We felt that with the development of a new revised bolt/drivetrain it would be better for our customers to build a new body around the new drivetrain rather than continue to make small changes here and there when we felt they were needed.

- A new revision of the Vapor has been developed and we will be testing that shortly as well. All the current and future registered owners of the Vapor available now will continue to be covered under the warranty terms. And we will continue to provide the level of service you expect from Machine and more.

- The new redesigned drivetrain will fit in and work on the original body and will be made available to all our current customers as an upgrade when it is complete.

- Machine is not in debt. We are in no stretch of the imagination rich, but we are not burdened with the debt that some people have been saying.

- We do also have a MilSim/scenario marker in development. It is not yet named and we have not set a release date. But be assured that it will be amazing.

- There will be a new soft sided case for the Vapor. The new Vapor will come with it and it will be available for sale to every one else as well.

- We fully intend to continue and expand our relationships with our flagship teams the Palm Beach Vipers in Florida and OC Flashpoint in California. Both of these organizations along with many others have helped Machine immeasurably and we are honored to have them continuing to support Machine. Palm Beach and OC will both be utilized as the testing beds for all the new products.

- Machine will continue to run the Test Drive program at as many events as we can and will b expanding that program when the new Vapor is released.

Paintball is a super competitive industry by its very nature, run by people who in almost every case have played at the most competitive levels there are. We recognize that and we accept those peoples individual character deviances. There will always be someone that is disgruntled or that you can simply not satisfy. No doubt you have heard the old cliché "You cant please all the people all the time". We will always do our best to help those people. And Machine will continue to strive to be the best we can for everyone that owns a Machine Vapor. We understand that everyone that bought a Vapor took a chance on a new marker. We thank you for that. We look forward to all the cool new things that Machine is going to be offering to you, and we hope that more of you will take that chance again.

Thank you.
-Machine Paintball."

Hey all, Happy 4th of July!

I figured y'all could use a laugh;

"My vapor just stopped working!" ~nublet

These are actual pictures that one of the Machine techs took. Remember when I said 99% of problems are user-based? It's true.

First off, you'll notice that the battery is plugged into the solenoid port. (it's even labeled "SOLENOID") Additionally, the eye wires aren't plugged into anything, and the solenoid wires are stripped completely.







...the eye wires need to be IN the grooves, not ON them

Here's what it should look like for reference;



Trust me when I say, 99% of the time, it's user error.

Man, I need to chill out here on PbN more often.

I got a PBV Vapor a little while ago and I gotta say it shoots really smooth and consistent.
