well about 2 weeks ago me and my family cleaned out the garage (where I keep my paintball stuff) and we went inside after cleaning it all out, but not having put anything back in yet. It began to rain and I didn't even think about my electronic gear being out there, everything was fine except now my mini will not turn on. Now I know that the mini has 2 boards (one eye board and one main board) and was wondering if I need to replace just the main board or both?


I guess a better question would be, what are the odds that the eye board is damaged as well?

From my experience, only the main board should have been effected.. in the front grip.

But that said, make sure to try taking the board out and letting it air dry before getting a replacement.

I've been letting it dry for near a month now, I don't think this one is rising from the ashes :P



edit: well I'll be damned, I decided to give it one last shot, I dissasembled the entire gun to base components and broke out the hair drier, and now, the thing works!

Thanks lo

I feel kind of stupid now :laugh:

problem solved, no further assistance needed
