Hmm. Is the battery that you are using very small? The resistance is created when the battery pushes against the back of the board.

Either that or the board has been used for a while and the rubber inside the button has worn out. Sadly, there is no way to repair this.

i've had problems before when my mini got wet... did yours happen to get wet? i had to use rubbing alcohol oh a swab and put it around the button.. then play with the button a while. gets rid of the moisture inside the button. hopefully that helps, if not, sadly you'll probably need a new board... or a bigger battery like he said above

To narrow down the problem try removing the panel to access the battery, bring the battery (still hooked up) outside the foregrip and brace the back of the board with a finger while pushing the button from outside the foregrip. If this fixes your problem, then you don't have enough resistance behind the board. That would be an easy fix. Just slide some paper or other filler material on either side of the battery to give more resistance behind the board.

If bracing the board by hand doesn't solve the issue, then the button itself is the problem, in which case further bracing the back of the board wouldn't help. Then you'd either have to replace the button or the entire board.

phone kee and tell them what's wrong with your board. i wouldn't be surprised if they replaced it for free. at the worst you could buy the new shockwave board, it's pretty cheap and has a few neat features like trigger adjustment and debounce.

Could be your trigger position, the distance of the magnet from the sensor board (adjusted by the set screw closest to the barrel) can have a direct influence on on/off/trigger operation. If you don't understand how your trigger works, get to know and understand it, one of the most crucial parts of owning a mini....

Wow, thread is back from the dead. Oh, and dtyrrell is right. You might want to try changing the battery as well or getting a new board if you have some money lying around.

Why the reply about the trigger was there don't know since it's a power button question.

Anyhow... yeah swap the battery, and try reseating the board in the grip. If you still have issues email/call Kee and let them know. If you're the warranty holder it's a non-issue.

My first Mini had a weird "flex" to the board that even w/ the battery in you couldn't push the button very well (unless I felt like putting tape or something inside force the flex the other direction). I hit up Kee, and they simply shot me a new board (a Shockwave board at that).
