Exclamation Eye issue, is this normal?

So I recently purchased a NT10 and I took it to the field and found that the eye's aren't working because its defaulting to 6BPS and it's flashing green, I have swapped the eye wires 3 times, so at this point I know its not the eyes but maybe its a issue with the board, has anyone ran into this issue?!?!? or is it common for the boards to go out like this?

Are the eyes aligned properly? Is the eye pipe installed correctly and in good condition with no cracks or scratches between the sensors? Is the connector firmly attached to the board?

It's not a typical board failure, though somethings the female end of the connector can pull away from the board.

Try changing your battery also If you have not already.. manual recommends it if the eyes are not working properly

if the above tricks don't work, it could be the rubber seal the the eyes are placed into. I had a similar problem where i was told the eyes were no good but the seal had a piece of rubber sticking out in the way of one of the eyes. trim it or get a new one.

I have swapped a new battery, I tested the eyes out of the gun by just hooking up a pair of eyes and connected it into the board, still didn't work. I have a Proto reflex rail that I tested by swapping the eyes over to the NT10, the eyes still wouldn't read but when i put it back on the Reflex, the eyes were reading so I have determined that the issue is in maybe the female end of the connector on the board or the board itself.

In your situation I would use a voltmeter and check for any voltage coming out of the board eye socket.i got voltage from white and red cable. Do the same to your rail to have a reference voltage

No voltage should mean board problems

.5V with the board turned on, correct? And using a quality meter?
