Mini with big issues

I have an Invert Mini that i used to use as a backup gun. It has been sitting for about a year. I went to shoot it today and it wont fire. I turn it on and the light blinks green and eventually turns to orange/red blinking. I changed the battery twice and still the same issue. No solenoid clicking or firing. I have tried everything. What could it be?

It could be a short in the board if it's not the battery itself.

Do you remember if you cleaned the upper board/eyes before you stored it? There could be a lot of old paint on the board causing problems. Also make sure the solenoid is still plugged into the board and that the wires are in good shape.

Adjust the screw on the top of the trigger closest to the front.

Have you tried taking it out and seeing if it's dirty? The one you have just might need a cleaning.

If its an older mini, the Microscopic magnet that is above the board might have came loose.

There is a magnet above the board I was telling to check out/clean. If it came off the body then the HES sensor has to magnetic field to detect.

Here is the magnet, i think it is 1/32" or 1/64" inch in size. it is that TINY silver disc in the picture (not the entire red square, lol)

When it is installed (AKA Super Glued in) it needs to repell the trigger magnet.

Who are you? I doubt you're an Empire tech since you're posting after business hours. It looks like you're trying to sabotage peoples guns by telling them to put toothpaste in them.
