New Drone DX Wont Fire

Hey guys,

I just got my new drone dx in today and aired it up to test fire in the back yard.

The gun turns on, solid red light. I turn the loader on and it goes solid green. Then i turned the air on and i can hear it turn on. However, when i try to fire the marker the light on the back flashes an amber color (yellow i guess). It makes no sound almost every time. There was once or twice it made a very faint "poof" sound but barely.

I tried reflashing the board to factory defaults (even thought i didnt mess with them to begin with). Also tried a different battery that i know is good.

Any ideas?!?!?!

Thanks in advance!

Turn the hpr counter clockwise to raise velocity. Maybe it's cutting off the air.

If i turn it up much, say a quarter turn at a time, it doesnt make any noise. (eyes off).

Yea actually now the bolt is moving, but it doesn't seem to be 100%. Very low and intermittent.

Have you read the OM? did you use a proper lube? can you turn the HPR screw more times CCW? Do you have enough pressure on your tank? Can you hear any leaks on the gun?

Have you tried to keep turning it up even more? Still sounds like it's not getting enough pressure from the reg. Do you have a pressure gauge (ASA with gauge in it will do)?

Yes i have read all through the OM. I relubed the gun per the previous suggestion. I have turned the HPR screw back and forth. Doesnt seem to make a difference. 2000 psi on my tank. Cannot hear any leaks.

Thanks!

Just put the tank on my Ion. Works fine. Have adjusted the pressure on the reg all over the place. No difference.

Seems like sometimes it does like in the video. Then other times it does nothing at all. Even when i haven't touched the reg or anything, it may or may not move the bolt. Seems like an electronics issue.

That's OK SHOOTNPOO, thanks for replying. I have tried 2 different batteries and both look good with my battery meter.

Thanks everyone for the tips. Looks like I'll prob need to send it in. Will keep everyone posted.

Double check the dwell is stock. Reset the board like the manual states.

as soon as i got mine it would damn near do the same. brought the dwell up to 11 and shot a bunch... I would also recomend quad modding your drive.

but yeah i got mine, broke paint and didnt shoot. relubed, replaced battery and i raised dwell.

Anyone know if i was to zero out the reg (as far clockwise as it would go) how many turns ccw it would take to get it to the approximate sweet spot? Just curious...
