Unhappy I'm in need of serious help...

Well my main problem is that this damn gun is not working right! I have did everything perfect, and it's not firing when it's supposed to. I keep it clean, oiled properly, and well... it's well maintained I'll put it that way. To get to my problem:

1) When setting the gun up to fire, I follow the directions in the manual perfect, and it's still not working.

2) I hold the gun to it's left side and shake it a little; while pulling the trigger, and it will shoot one paintball. And this is when it's in the far back, cocked position.

I have no clue what the problem is. If someone has experienced this and has come to a concluson on what needs to be done, I would appreciate it.

My Gun, and rest of setup is in my Sig, if that helps to know that.

Thanks...

As far as setting it up, walk me through it. I have yet to see your problem exactly.

Ok, after setting it up perfectly to be fired. And for one of the steps for setting it up, I do as it says, and I cock the gun before adding the air supply.

It's now cocked way back. Then when I go shoot it, it does nothing. But when I hold it to the side and shake it a little; it then shoots like one paintball.

And Im using a Duracell 9 Volt...


By the way you can try to contact me on AIM, my name is ijustluv2xlr8 ...

Sounds like bad wiring. Try turning the eye off first to see if that's it. If it acts the same way check the wires inside the grip running to and from the solenoid and the trigger switch. See if they are loose or broken at all.

The earlier models did, but the new ones dont. When I get my pics of my TES back, I will show it to you. I knew this would come up again and wanted to have some proof, lol.


To the origionator of the thread: What is your velocity set at ? What is your reg set at? your pressure might be to low to recock the gun. Does your tank have air ? also, take your eye cover off, inspect the eye and the wires for knicks or burn marks, then remove the frame from the TES body and trace the wires to the board, also need to remove your left grip. Make sure there isnt any knicks or burns and make sure its plugged in to the board. I have seen 2 so far with eye problems where the eye wasnt plugged completely in, more then likely an owner problem then a manufacturer problem, but anything is possible.

If the sear was the problem, chances are it just wouldn't fire at all, not fire once or twice on the side. I'd be willing to bet it's an electrical problem.

Might also be the same problem I'm having with my BD and you will have to return it to DE for warranty work. If you aim the marker in the air, it shoots just fine, but if you hold it horizontally ( normal postion) it wont shoot at all, seems the capacitor doesnt have enough charge to recock the solenoid.

I'm just going to return it for warranty work. I talked to them on the phone and everything seems to be right except the gun is just not firing correctly. When the problem is resolved I will let everyone know what happen, so this can be easily handled if it occurs for someone in the future. Thanks everyone for your help.
