Eyes in clone vx'd not working?

I have replaced the eyes twice(once by jerry), once by me on my clone(within 1 month) It doesn't solve the issue of the gun not working with eyes on. Turn them off, no problem-Just doesn't help much. Am I missing something that I can try. I have a buddy with the same clone doing the same thing. Tried checking the eye connection to the board, and making sure the eyes were clean/aligned. Give me some ideas. thanks

Are you sure you have them in the proper sockets on the board?

Should be the red/white, then the yellow/black from left to right. Other than that the only thing I could think of is a faulty board. Do the eyes even illuminate?

Yes I checked the order. Its correct. I just didn't want to spring for a board if it's not that. I've just never heard of a board flaking out on just the eyes. The eyes do light and then after the first trigger pull they stop seeing and then they go into this tiny light flashing.

Once the gun is turned on the eyes will be solid then start flashing, so that is normal. Do the eyes even detect a ball in the breach or do they give an eye fault?

Ya, the eyes will flash. Put your finger in the breech and see what the board says. Can you elaborate on how the gun does not work with them on?

Ok, thanks Mark, But, here is a better description.VX'd clone: Turn the gun on and I put finger in breach and it won't detect anything. As usual turn eyes off the noid clicks. The eyes are on and plugged in correctly. While holding gun with barrel forward the eye that is lit is on the right?(Gt the eye that is lit is on left???)
The funniest thing is that I'll leave the gun on the workbench and on some days the eyes work exactly as they should, the next morning it's not...It really is intermittent. I've owned this clone since new and it worked fine for years.

Someone is borrowing my VX at the moment so I can't check which eye is lighting up. If you're certain they're plugged in the right place the only thing I can imagine is that perhaps you have a failing eye set. It's always possible the board is the problem but it's impossible to tell without swapping components.

I've got a loaner from a teamate. BUT, his board is the old A so I have to flash it cause his screen is shot. LOL I'll do a flash / swap later and report back in.

Mark, it may not be the solution, but reflash the board on the faulty gun. I know sometimes those things happen with computer and reinstalling drivers sometimes fixes issues with them. I thought you could down grade the firmware on the board to 1.0 if you can do that then reflash to 2.0. Maybe it had a glitch when updating it. Hope i helped a little and hope you get this issue fixed.
