My luxe won't stay on

Hey nation, so basically like the title says, my luxe won't stay on. i was trying to use it today, i was able to turn it on, but then it shut down after about two shots. it won't turn back on unless it's plugged in, but after one shot it shuts off. can anyone help? i also am going to try a different battery, but since it still turns off when it's plugged in i don't think it's going to help

Sounds like a dead battery to me. Or a loose/broken wire somewhere. Or you may have the trigger set too short and the gun is faulting out and powering down.

If you know someone who can solder like a boss, you can just have him re-attach the wires. Usually electronics guru's can do this no problem.

yeah, i've had it soldered once before. when i got it though it looked like it was already solder once after the factory one. the one problem is, is that i would have to cut the wires short cause some of the wires are still attached to the solenoid cause they broke a little down in the wire cover. Im not sure if they'll reach the board, I'm going to try it though. thanks!
