I have not used my gun for awhile but plan on playing this weekend. So I plug in the gun to recharge the battery (about 12 hours) and nothing this morning. Should the cocking pin not come forward when pressing the trigger? With the tank attached and saftey off I get nothing ( I have not put any balls on). Any thoughts?

Hmmmm. Does the marker do anything? Do the lights come on when you turn the switch on? Take the grips of and double check all the connections, make sure there is nothing loose or no damage to the wires.

yea, the lights come on in the handle. I'll check the wires. Should I get any sort of lights in the battery area? right now there is nothing.

No just the lights in the handle. If you pull the trigger does the light flash?

Try these, First take your left grip cover off and make sure the tournament lock out jumper is installed and seated completely, next disconnect the battery and if you have a voltmeter check the voltage, if not, well there's always the stick it to your tongue method. Now reinstall the battery (in doing this you verified that your battery voltage is good and also allowed the board to do a logic reset, if your familiar with electronics you what I'm talking about), take it off safe (if its not in safe try and cycle it through other modes) then try and fire it. If it still doesn't fire, then either pull back on the cocking pin or remove the bolt and striker and try and fire listening for the solenoid to cycle. Let us know what happens.

K, so it isn't the switch. Could be the solenoid. Do you here any clicking at all when you pull the trigger?

Got it!! I am not sure what it is called but it was below the battery and looks like a washer, beside the solenoid. I had cleaned up the gun and lubed it pretty heavy and apparently some of the liquid got behind the washer looking thing which caused it to form like a suction. I just moved the washer thing to the right (breaking the suction) and bingo no problems.

THanks for all the help.
