My Quest has been in storage for the last three years and when I took it out, the Noid wasn't firing. Turns out the wires were unsoldered.
Now it fires (great!) but the eyes don't seem to work. Fresh new battery, the light blinks green but it doesn't change colours when I put something in the breech and the noid doesn't click if I fire. If I turn the eyes off, the noid fires.
Is there an easy way to tell if my problem is with my board or my eyes?
It doesn't glow. I just checked with my iphone camera.
Does this mean the eyes are shot or the board?
I did accidentally connect the battery harness to the eye socket (and plug in a battery, d'OH!) so it might be shorted out. Is there another way of being sure? I don't want to order a board if I don't have to (too bad the Universal T-Board is out of production).
Before the eye issue. After I had fixed the solenoid harness, I was putting everything back together and in my hurry, connected the battery to the eye socket. The LED turned on blue for a second. I disconnected everything, the board didn't turn on for about a minute. Then it turned on. It flashes green (manual says that means anti chop system is running normally) but doesn't detect objects in breech. It does run the solenoid just fine if I turn the eyes off though.
Check and make sure your manual is the correect version of your board. Also ur lucky I fired a ape in my old quest on accident and John Paul at critical replaced it for free. Go to him if u ne'er anything quest related.
