Mini Virtue board getting hot

So I recently bought a used Invert Mini and at first it was shooting just fine. But the other day it started leaking really bad. So I took the marker apart and didn't see any bad o-rings or obvious signs of why it would be leaking. So I put it back together and went to reset the solenoid. But after several trigger pulls, the solenoid wasn't clicking. Then I noticed that the board was really hot, as well as the battery. I turned it off real quick and let it cool down. After a while, I turned it back on and the board still came on, but it still got hot really fast so I pulled the battery right back out. I also noticed that it was flashing blue, indicating that the eyes sensed something, when there was nothing in the breech. I took the marker back apart to see if I didn't put it back together right but I put it back together exactly the way it was before. Can someone help me out? The board is a Virtue board, not the stock one. I don't have the money to replace the board so I'm really hoping it isn't burnt out. I just don't know what would've caused it to get burnt out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Are the pins in correctly?

Do you have the battery harness connected backwards?

Is there any paint on the board?

Is there anything on the pins that connect to the marker?

The board is clean and looks new. I checked the pins and everything seemed to be hooked up right.

Not sure what I did different, but when I just put the battery in, it worked fine Well, I'm happy that it's working fine now, but just confused as to why it was messing up before.
