So, I got an Invert Mini in the mail today. It has been used before me, but barely. I turned it on, and the little light started flashing red. I read in the manual that this means to replace the battery. So I did. Then I tried to turn it on again, but the light did not come on. I tried a different battery. Still no response. I put the old battery back in, and it came on with the light blinking red again. I tried a different brand of battery. Guess what? No response. So I put the old battery back in again. Same little red light. My friend told me to pull the trigger when it is turned on and I should hear the electronics working. So I pulled the trigger several times, but I couldn't hear the electronics working. I don't have a tank for it yet, so I couldn't try to dry-fire it. Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions as to what is the problem and how to fix it?

By the way, the marker's serial number is 001249. I don't know if that helps or not.

Check the connections. I had a gen 1 board and needed it to be replaced (and then get a gen1 Tadao that needs to be replaced...)

It had the updated board. Weird thing is I tested right before I packed it and worked fine. And you need to hold the trigger down before you turn on and let go once the gun's on. Are you using good brand batteries? Post up we'll try to help.

James hustling broken guns...tisktisk

Idk how minis boards work but check to make sure all the connections are fully inserted into each other...you may have pull something out while you were putting in the batteries or in transit.

Peace,

Can I touch the board with my bare hands? Wouldn't it cause a short? And I used Duracell and Energizer batteries, so the brand thing shouldn't matter.

~Quip~

EDIT: Okay, the Noids click now. I don't think that solves the battery problem. I'll check the connections.

If the noids are clicking that means the battery is working because they are not able to click without power (battery).

Yes, the old battery works, and now one of the new ones works, but only one of the new ones works, and the little light still flashes red.

Mine always flashes red, when you hold it down to turn it on, does it goes from solid green (for only a sec) to the blinking red?

Are they eyes connected/broken?

On most guns flashing or solid red means the eyes are off or not connected to the gun.

Try pressing the button a few yimes and change the modes, it may be set on a weird mode.

Teddy K, the eyes are on and working. Hittmann, I'll try your suggestion. That still doesn't explain why it doesn't accept most batteries, however. I'm gonna take to my local pro shop on Wednesday. We'll see what happens there.
