View Full Version : few problems...

ok so i've been trying to figure out what was up with my frame for a while, it wouldnt turn on and i couldnt shoot fast.so i finally got to strip everything down and look at every piece.

Problem #1: i mixed up the battery cable and the thing that moves the sear forward, name escapes me. so those were pluged into the wrong slots and i finally relized it after staring at it for like 30 minutes:p.

problem #2: on capacitor, one of the wires got disconnected thats why i wasnt able to shoot fast cuz the capacitor wasnt charging up enough power to push the sear down. but the problem is the wire broke off just inside of the capacitor, so i cant solder it back together. ill see if i can get pictures up tomarrow, cuz its kinda hard to explian.

and i also wanted to say has anyone ever used one of those ColdHeat soldering things. i got one for christmas and its amazing. if you do a lot of soldering this thing is great.it really does cool off within 3 seconds.http://www.thinkgeek.com/images/products/additional/large/coldheat-case.jpg

just call up kingman and send your board back to get fixed, I think someone is selling one in the BST forums for like $20 too...

Or you could always spend $10-20 more and get a T Board.

I've wondered about those cold heat things. I'm not very good a soldering, does that make it any easier?

Tim....er um...bigred said he tried it and it was crap (dad's into electronics n such)...idk though, I never even held one

Yeah, I tried one. I'll take my Soldering Station over that thing any day, even if it means I get burned....again...:p

I have one of those coldheat solders, they are nice but you have to learn how to work them. The solder tip is split in the middle and it only gets hot when both sides are touching something metal. It can be difficult to use with some things but it does really get hot in about 4 secs and cools off just as fast.

ya it takes some gettting used to.and i just relized looking at that picture i think i have the tip on mine upside down. w.e it works. ya i could just get a new board and a t- board would be nice but im buying a new gun soon, shocker or something high end. so ive been saving.

yo i got a ESP board for 20 bucks in my thread (http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=480). here s apicture of it

pm me if u would like to make a deal.

ya i saw it, i would buy it but my frame is the dip switch one so it doesnt have the hole in the back for the butten. i also have my friends frame and led board so if i really cant fix it im just going to trade frame and boards with him cuz he doesnt have as syder anymore.

You could always drill the hole yourself...It's pretty easy, just need a steady hand and a carbide-tipped bit in the right size. ;)

o ya i no, i have a drill press and all the stuff to do it but it would be easyer and cheaper just to trade frames with my buddy cuz he doesnt have a spyder anymore. but im a nut and i like fixing things so im going to try to fix it first.
