I just got a used Imagine and I put a reg 9V battery the lights didnt even light up. Do I need to put a 9.6V? I will try that today if not I am gonna take it apart and try to clean all the connectors. Thanks for any advice.

You will need a rechargeable 9.6v battery. Some people claim their Spyder works fine with a 9v, but I know mine would shoot like twice and that was it.

Thanks that's I been hearing, I just went to get a 9.6V 240mah battery so im gonna charge it and see if that solves the issue. Thanks again, i will post again tonight with results.

Update! So I got the 9.6V rechargeable battery. Plugged everything in tried to clean the connections by the switch. Would not charge, not lights lit at all even with new 9v battery. Could this be a bad board? Here are some pics of the board in this thing. Please let me know what kind of board i can replace it with. Thanks. Or If worst comes to worst can I put a mechanical trigger on this gun? will it work? I just want this as a gun for a loaner, nothing serious. thanks again.

Can I just replace the trigger with a Critical Spyder MG Trigger Kit, and does any one know if this comes with a board?

Nope the critical trigger kit does not come with a board, its just the trigger. Go through and check all your wires, make sure they are plugged in all the way and correctly. Check the battery wire for any exposed wire.

As far as new board goes, your best bet is to find a used on in the BST section here or on PbNation.

I know this is probably dumb, but Would I be able to a mechanical trigger on the imagine?

No question is dumb. You can absolutely put a mechanical frame on the Imagine.

Ok, update! I got a new board. STILL no power to the board. Could this be my on/off switch? Where can I get one and what kind??? Thank you.

UPDATE!!!!! I got the board working when I tweak the wires in the switch. I put a screwdriver between the green and middle wire. This turned it on and the trigger worked great! The only problem now is if I solder the green wire to the middle wire the gun wont switch to safety/off. Hopefully I can get a new switch from someone. Any input??? Thank you!
