A Couple More Invert Mini Issues Not as major

Okay, so I solved the first issue with my Mini by replacing the board. Now, however, I have another minor issue. For some reason, the eyes are not registering that there is a ball in the breach. I turn the eyes off and the marker shoots just fine. I turn the eyes on and it shoots one, maybe two shots and then stops. The light on the grip tells me that there is no ball in the breach. Could the eyes just be dirty?

Another minor issue: at the end of the last day of paintball, I was emptying the rest of my pods, and a few shots out of every string were dry fires. Since my fingers are slow (8-11 bps) and since I'm using a Reloader B, I doubt I'm out-shooting my hopper. Could I not be pulling the trigger enough? I'm extremely new at double-triggering, so it could be my fault.

Thanks in advance.

On an electro, there's no such thing as not pulling the trigger enough. Either the pull is read or it isn't, so pulling it too short can't cause the marker to shoot without paint.

I suggest you clean the eyes as well as completely wipe down the bolt and powertube and relube it. To me it sounds suspiciously close to when my friend's Mini (that used to be mine) had a problem with the bolt returning where it didn't fully return backwards, so it fired fine on dryfire but would very rarely allow a ball into the breech. Simply taking out the bolt, using a Q-Tip to clean the poppet and some paper towel to wipe off the bolt and powertube, and relubing it fixed the problem altogether.

What do I relube it with? I think the manual said not to use oil based lube. And where's the Poppit?

The poppet is the little brass (? It's brass-coloured at least) piece that you see when you remove the internals (remove rear frame screw and pull out the assembly). It's hard to miss. Relube with any Dow33-based lube or similar. The manual should specify where to put the grease, if not then there's a guide on PBN that makes it quite clear where exactly to lube it.

There's some kind of substance that came in a little container with the Mini. Is that the lube?

Yeah, you can use that, but the best stuff is the tacht lube, that stuff is so slick it works amazing.

Clean the eyes in your gun and replace the batteries in the hopper. Also try to use bright paint, like chronic or evil. Also if you are using alot of different color paint it can 'confuse' the eyes in your gun.

But about your hopper make sure you have new batteries in it because Reloader B's don't seem to be good with batteries.

Hmmm... I was using green and dark-orange paintballs mostly. Neither of the colors were very bright. As for the hopper, supposedly the light changes color when the batteries are low.
