My contribution if wanted....

Troubleshooting
Marker does not Power ON
• Replace battery with a fresh 9V battery right from the package.
• Ensure battery is orientated properly and prongs are making contact with the terminals.
• Ensure all wiring and OLED are connected and secured properly.

Marker does not recognize 4C eyes
• Ensure eye wires are inserted properly and completely
• Ensure wires have not pulled out of connectors
• Clean Both eyes
• Ensure your board programming is up to date (At or above Insight 5.19)

Marker will not fire
• Ensure Marker is turned on and not in programming mode.
• Ensure ASA have been turned on (Aired up)
• Ensure a paintball is in the breach or the Eyes are off.
• Ensure Solenoid and all other wiring is connected properly

Marker fires multiple times each pull (Bounce) or goes full auto
• Adjust the trigger activation point to activate in the last of the pull
• Ensure trigger pull is long enough.
• Ensure nothing is impeding the switch lever
• Increase Debounce or Mechanical Debounce settings
• Ensure trigger spring is installed

OLED screen shows Eye malfunction (X)
• Ensure eye wires are inserted properly and completely
• Ensure wires have not pulled out of connectors
• Clean Both eyes

Marker double Feeds
• Ensure detents and springs are in place.
• Ensure Detents can move freely (lubricate if necessary)
• Replace worn or broken Detents
• Adjust Loader Stack tension (if applicable)

Marker velocity is very inconstant or the marker has drop-off
• Replace battery with a fresh 9V battery right from the package.
• Ensure your paint to barrel bore is correct
• Ensure you are using round fresh high quality paintballs
• Check Operating Pressure is between 150-185psi (Pressure Tester Needed)
• Remove and relube engine ram and bolt with proper lubrication (Thick, gummy, or lack of lubricant can result all result inconsistency and drop off.)
• Ensure engine pieces are tightly screwed together.
• Replace the two 010 orings at the back of the ram.

Marker leaks from the right side of the back engine cap
• Carefully remove solenoid and lightly grease / oil the lower orings. (Closest to Solenoid body) DO NOT OVER LUNBRICATE OR USE DOW55
• If orings are damaged contact BLAST for replacements

Marker leaks between the frame and the body
• Ensure you are using Low Pressure Tanks as recommended. Use of medium or high pressure will increase the chance of blowing out this oring.
• Check and make sure both frame screws are tight.
• Ensure oring is present and lubricate (DOW55 recommended) and reassemble. Typically relubing and reassembling, then letting it sit overnight before airing up. Typically works well.

Marker leaks between the frame and the ASA
• Ensure you are using Low Pressure Tanks as recommended. Use of medium or high pressure will increase the chance of blowing out this oring.
• Check 015 oring on the tank
• Check and make sure both ASA screws are tight.
• Ensure oring is present and lubricate (DOW55 recommended) and reassemble. Typically relubing and reassembling, then letting it sit overnight before airing up typically works well.

Marker leaks from the left side of the back engine cap
• Ensure Back cap screw is tight to the housing. Use Blue Loctite if needed.
• Ensure 1mm X 2mm oring is not missing and is in place properly behind the back cap.

Marker leaks from Engine removal Button
• Ensure Screws on the button assembly are tight
• Carefully remove the button assembly and lubricate the 011 oring on the button and reinstall. Dow55 Recommended

Marker leaks from the front of the Marker
• Ensure front firing can oring is secure and the correct size (020)
• Ensure U-cup oring (Flapper) is not damaged and is orientated correctly.
o Bottom of the U faces the front of the Marker

Getting excessive breach wear
• Ensure the bolt is tight on the ram shaft. Over tightening may cause the bolt to be out of alignment on the shaft, so do not over tighten.
• Ensure Firing Can is tight to ram housing
• Bolt may be bent or firing chamber is honed incorrectly. Send marker in to BLAST.

ok this may be stupid but ill ask anyways

a local team shoots insights but they complain that it kicks a lot, like most I hear...

would going from a size 10 to an 11 help slow the bolt down some and give a softer feel?

No, that would just cause increased drag and would require you to raise the dwell and pressures to get it to cycle properly.
My Insights ... all 5 of them, have shot much like a luxe using stock settings once they had 3 cases or so through them. It does give the shooter some feedback, but I would not say it kicks a lot ... they are MUCH smoother than any tuned Geo3 I have owned. I would like to know what they are using for pressures and dwell settings.
I'll have the new bolt tomorrow, but this new bolt will supposedly smooth the Insight out more. We'll see.

This should be "sticky" so Insight users can easily find it on the front forum page. Thank you WildWayz for doing such a good job putting these useful information together.
