Empire scion help

A buddy of mine sent me his scion to try and fix it. He used it once and now it will not feed. It will turn on. If you tap the power button it will "unjam". It will enter programming mode. But I can't find anything on it troubleshooting wise. Any help please.

Please try the following;

SELF TEST:
IMPORTANT: WHEN RUNNING A SELF-TEST THE LOADER SHOULD NOT BE INSTALLED ON A MARKER AND THERE SHOULD BE NO PAINTBALLS PRESENT IN THE
LOADER. The self-test is meant as a way the user can diagnose any issue with the loader
quickly. The self-test feature will perform 3 tests described below. Note always check that
fresh, brand name alkaline or lithium batteries are installed when running self-test. For best
results use 6AAs (Duracell/Energizer) during self test.
Test 1 Drive Sensor Test
This diagnostic tests the Drive Sensor System which controls the speed of the loader and detects jams in the system. The LED will blink ORANGE one time to indicate Test #1 has started.
The loader will then spin for a short amount of time to test the drive sensor. After the loader
stops spinning the LED will turn either GREEN or RED to indicate the test has passed or
failed respectively. A GREEN LED equals passing and RED equals failing. This test will run up
to 3 times. If it fails after 3 times it will move onto the next test. If all 3 attempts fail, the LED
will blink RED 3 times after the last attempt.
Test 2 Feedneck Break Beam Sensor Test
This diagnostic tests that the Feedneck Break Beam Sensor System is working. The LED will
blink ORANGE two times to indicate Test #2 has started. During Test #2 the loader will not
spin. When the test is finished the LED will indicate GREEN or RED if the test passes or fails
respectively. This test will only attempt one time.
Test 3 Motor Control System Test
This diagnostic test indicates to the user whether or not the Motor Control System is functioning properly. The LED will blink ORANGE three times to indicate Test #3 has started. During
the test the loader should spin first forward, then in reverse for equal amounts of time. After
the test the LED will indicate GREEN or RED if the test passes or fails respectively. This test
will only attempt one time. After Test #3 the LED and loader will turn OFF.
NOTE:
The battery wire connector is a 9V-type connector, but 9V batteries do not have
sufficient power. Only use 6-AA batteries installed in the supplied battery holder.
4-AA battery adapter sold separately.
NEVER use unauthorized rechargeable battery packs in place of the supplied 6-AA
battery holder. The electronic components are not designed to handle the high output
of some rechargeable battery packs. The use of unauthorized rechargeable packs
poses a fire hazard and risk of injury, and will void your warranty.
Do not use rechargeable AA batteries. They have less voltage than alkaline batteries
and do not provide enough power.
NEVER attempt to modify the electronic components, wiring, or battery connector.
Doing so poses a fire hazard and risk of injury, and will void your warranty

If the above does not work then we can go from there it see what we can do.

That is a pretty cool feature to come on a reasonably priced loader.

Thanks for the replies. About five minutes after I posted this I fixed it. The two plugs for the eyes were plugged into the wrong spot. No problems now.
