SP Ion Won't Fire

Marker: SP Ion
Mods: 360 QEV & Dye Hyper 2 Reg

I bought the marker used and replaced the stock reg with the Hyper2 due to a stock reg leak. Marker gases up fine without leaks but the marker will not fire. I put in a new battery, set the dwell, rof, and firing modes back to the stock setting, and replaced the battery again. It still will not fire with the marker in semi-auto with the eyes off.

I bought the hyper 2 used. The previous owner left the pressure too high and it blew the hose going into the QEV so I replaced the hose and set the reg to the lowest pressure and that's where I'm at now. I've tried bumping up the reg pressure a little but no luck yet.

If you're not using any paint, have you tried turning off the eyes?

Does you tank have any air in it? (Had to ask)

And do you still have the stock gauge on the frame?

Also If your pressure is set too high the Ion will not fire.

All valid questions for troubleshoot guys. Eyes are off, I have about 1000 psi in my 68/4500 tank. I'm not sure if it's the stock gauge on the frame but there is a gauge and it busted when I first installed the regulator and gased it up. I bought a new one today but I have not installed it yet for fear that I might break the new one before I got all of my settings correct.

I tried again tonight and I started fiddling with the regulator adjustment and got the marker to start cycling! It just needed a couple of turns for the adjustment screw on the hyper 2 reg. Now I just have to figure out what the best dwell/rof setting. Any recommendations for a stock Ion with a 360 qev and a hyper 2 reg?

No, you need to go to a chrono and figure it out yourself.

There is no one best setting for this, that and the other. Every marker is different
