Fenix ACS seer will not release
So here is the problem. When I pull the trigger, the fenix just clicks. Basically it does not appear that the system has the power to release the seer. So here is the background:
-Worked well for the start of the match. Ran about 100 balls through it on full auto and it worked perfectly.
-After about 45 minutes down time resumed play and it just clicked and would not release the seer..
-Re-charged the battery.....no improvement
-Oiled the connection between seer and bolt....no improvement
-Dialed down the spring pressure on the bolt to its minimum setting....no improvement.
-Replaced the capacitor with a new one....no improvement.

If anyone can direct me to try something else, it would be greatly apprecitated. I am kind of at the end of my ideas, and really want to avoid taking it to a shop only to be told how worthless my marker is and be charged a $100

Re: Fenix ACS seer will not release
If you push the trigger and push on the back of the bolt (no air connected) will the bolt go forward freely or does it feel like its tight and takes a lot of effort?

Could be a couple things, battery problem is definitely one of them. You could try shimming the solenoid. Just put a penny, nickle or dime behind the solenoid, between the flat side of the piston that is in the solenoid and the body of the trigger frame. The coin should stay in there with the grip on and you shouldn't have any problems. Test each size coin to make sure you aren't over shimming which would do the opposite of what your problem is now.
