  1. In Topic: What is your worst feeling?

    Enjoying a nice Easter dinner with your girlfriend's family, coming home at midnight after a day that seemed like nothing bad could ever happen in your happy little bubble and getting the call that your best friend from high school died in a motorcycle crash earlier that day.

    And knowing that the last conversation you ever had with the man was you blowing him off over the internet because you were too busy watching youtube to give a care. He was trying to get me to come down to his place in Oklahoma for D-Day.

    Are any wires broken? If not reassemble and try it. Check your dwell setting also. When you reassemble make sure you don't pinch anything and the sear pin moves freely.

    Okay, now I know there's something wrong: it won't let me access the settings option at all.

    Well, with that, I am not touching this darn thing anymore, I'm going to the pro-shop I got it from and if they don't deal with it, I'll give Tippmann a call.

    Well, I pulled it apart and it looks like there might be a pinched wire leading to/from (IDK ITS THE BLACK ONE) the capacitor. Looks like it wiggled free of its cutout slot on the right side of the grip and got stuck under the battery.

    Assuming this is the problem.... 2 questions:

    1: It is beyond repair?
    2: Does that mean my entire grip is shot and I have to get a new one if I don't want this thing to melt in my hand whenever I take a piss break?

    Okay, I do have a magnet. Unfortunately, the problem I'm having is not discussed in the manual.

    I tried operating the e-grip assembly disassembled to see exactly what's going on. It still operates normally, however when the board is put into an "off" setting, the solenoid engages and does not disengage. I can't even get it to move at all with or without the magnet.

    My limited knowledge of electronics tells me that this means the solenoid is trying to cycle and is draining the power from the battery. Since it engages, less power is used and the remaining electricity is routed back into the battery, which would cause a rather prolonged short-circuit. Or something along those lines.

    .....That probably means something in this mess is definitely NOT in working order....

    yippie skippie.

    That board is bi-polar since it works on both 98c and A5. Are you sure it's not in 98C mode?

    I have absolutely no idea. How would I go about checking that?
