Default Did I wreck my board?

So i was playing on saturday and my gun was being really retarded. This was my 3rd time using the gun and I was getting set up and noticed my baterry was dead. So I was like oh well ill just put in my spare enigizer. So I put it into the gun and everything seemed fine. The gun was working fine for the first little bit. But then I started having problems during the game. Im not sure what happened, my gun never chops balls so I dont know why it was happening but it wasnt letting me shoot. I was pulling on the trigger and it just wasnt shooting. So I was like looking to make sure there was a ball in the chamber, and there was. I checked to make sure my eyes were on. And they were. So I turned the eyes off and it shot a couple I think but everytime I pulled the trigger it wasnt shooting. It would shoot like 1 out of 5 of my "clicks". So I reasembled the gun. Cleaned it out and it was working fine again. Then the next game same thing happened again. All I know Is I saw paint in my feedneck from braking a ball. (Note this gun has never broke a ball for me before until that day. It has eyes.) So I brought the gun home and was just clicking it by itself not air or balls in the gun. I was just doing 1 shot at a time and its doing the same thing. Sometimes it will shoot when I pull the trigger and sometimes it wont. I take off the battery cover to see if any paint or anything is in there, and not that I can see. I dont know whats going on with my gun. The manual said only use 9.5 volt spyder batterys. Could the 9v Enegizer messed with the board?? I need some knowledge please.

The standard 9 volt does not have enough energy to run the gun properly. That is what the problem sounds like.

We know it has eyes, but were they on? If they were maybe its the loader/hopper.

Right now my gun is working but it goes in and out of these stages. Like I said it was giving me the same problems without air or balls in the gun. Im 99% sure its not the hopper because its gravity fed. The gun wont work after I walk the trigger for a while. And it works again after I open up the circuit board (Take the cover off to see if there is anything wrong) and turn it off and on.

Charge the battery for 6-8 hours.

Start there because all the problems you are stating can come from a low battery.

the answer to your problem is very simple..all you have to do is recharge the battery that came with your gun for 6-8 hours and give it another try to see if the problem continues and if it doesn't then you know what the problem was.

So I did as everyone told me I recharged the battery and played again today. Guess what same problem. My gun was working fine at the begining and then after the first game or so I started getting problems. It starts as gradual. First its just a couple shots that dont fire, then its more then half and then im lucky to get 1 shot out of 50 clicks. So I tryed changing the modes. Tryed turning the gun on and off. Tryed turning the eyes off. Nothing. Nothing works. What is up?

How long was it between charging your gun and using it? If you charge it for the 6-8 hours and don't use it for 4-5 days the battery will be almost drained.
