first mini problems

I just got my first mini, its a v3 and in very good shape inside and out. but it has a few issues.

1. air is leaking down the barrel. I cleaned the solenoid and cleaned/lubed the bolt, but it still leaks.

2. the solenoid is clicking full auto when its in psp mode, and when i try to reprogram it, none of the settings save. so how do i know that the changes save? the manual doesn't say how to exit programing mode or anything.

thanks

if it's leaking out the barrel, it means the valve seal is leaking.

The MINI must be OFF to begin
managing functions. While the MINI
is OFF press the Function Key to access
one of the 5 different functions and make
adjustments. For example, press the
Function Key 1 time and you will be in
“Function 1” which is “Firing Modes” or
press the Function Key 3 times and you
will be in “Function 3” which is “Dwell”.
1. Firing Modes (Solid Red LED)
2. Rate of Fire(Solid Green LED)
3. Dwell(Solid Orange LED)
4. BIP Delay (Flashing Red LED)
5. Ramping Point (Quick-Flashing
Green LED)
Once you push the Function Key the
appropriate amount of times to get into
the desired function, the LED will flash a
specific color per the descriptions below
followed by flashing which will indicate
the current setting in that function. To
change settings in each function, you
use both the Power Button and Function
Key, to shift up or down much like
shifting through motorcycle gears. To
increase the number in that setting, hit
the Function Key. To decrease the
number in that setting hit the Power
Button. Function Key for up –
Power Button for down.

VIX. FUNCTIONS ,MODES12
1. Firing Modes –
WILL BE INDICATED BY SOLID RED LED
To get into the Firing Mode Function,
make sure the POWER IS OFF, then push
the Function Key one time and LED will
turn to Red and then flash to indicate the
Firing Mode that it is currently in. For
example the Default mode is Semi-Auto
which will be demonstrated by one
flash. There are 4 Firing Modes:
a. Semi-Auto/NPPL (1 Flash)
– one shot per trigger pull. Max ROF 20
BPS
b. Ramping/PSP (2 Flashes)
– First 3 shots will be standard
semi-auto, on 4th shot, MINI will ramp
to a pre-set 15 BPS ROF.
c. Full-Auto/NXL (3 Flashes)
– First 3 shots will be standard Semiauto, on 4th shot MINI will go into
full auto mode with a pre-set 15 BPS
ROF.
d. Ramping/Millen. (4 Flashes)
– the MINI will operate in a semi-auto
mode until player achieves an 8 BPS
trigger pull. At that point, and as
long as 8 trigger pulls per second
are maintained, the MINI will ramp to
a pre-set 15 BPS ROF.
To cycle through these modes you use
both the Power Button and Function
Key. Once you push the Function Key
one time to get into the Firing Modes the
LED will flash red. While the LED is lit
Red push the Function Key to cycle up
(from 1 for Semi to 4 for Full Auto) and
to go the opposite direction (from 4 at
Full Auto through to 1 for Semi) use the
Power Button to cycle down.
For example, if you are in the Default Semi-Auto
mode and want to go to 3 Shot Burst, Push the
Function Key twice while the LED is lit Red.
Upon release you should see the LED flash red
3 times. To move from 3 Shot Burst to 2 Shot
Burst, push the Function One time to get into
firing modes, then while LED is lit Red, push
Power Button one time and release. LED should
flash Red two times to indicate that you are now
in Firing Mode 2 – 2 shot burst.

2. Max Rate-of-Fire –
WILL BE INDICATED BY SOLID GREEN LED
To get into the ROF Function, make sure
POWER IS OFF, then push Function Key
two times and LED will turn to Green
and then flash to indicate the Rate Of
Fire (1-20) that you are currently using.
Default is 15 Balls Per Second. To adjust
ROF push the Function Key two times
and when the LED is lit Green use either
the Function Key (to toggle up or
increase your ROF) or the Power Button
(to decrease the ROF). For example – To
start you will be in a Default setting of 15
BPS. Push the Function Key twice to get
into ROF Mode. While the LED is lit
Green, press the Function Key 5 times to
take you to 20 BPS. Upon releasing the
Function Key, the LED should then blink
20 times indicating your new Rate Of
Fire.
The easy way to know your rate of fire:
number of flashes divided by two then
add ten. eg 15 flashes / 2 = 7.5
7.5 + 10 = 17.5 BPS
www.invertpaintball.com
10.5 BPS ( Flash 1 time )
11 BPS ( Flash 2 time )
11.5 BPS ( Flash 3 time )
12 BPS ( Flash 4 time )
12.5 BPS ( Flash 5 time )
13 BPS ( Flash 6 time )
13.5 BPS ( Flash 7 time )
14 BPS ( Flash 8 time )
14.5 BPS ( Flash 9 time )
15 BPS ( Flash 10 time )
15.5 BPS ( Flash 11 time )
16 BPS ( Flash 12time )
16.5 BPS ( Flash 13time )
17 BPS ( Flash 14 time )
17.5 BPS ( Flash 15 time )
18 BPS ( Flash 16 time )
18.5 BPS ( Flash 17 time )
19 BPS ( Flash 18 ime )
19.5 BPS ( Flash 19 time )
20 BPS ( Flas

1) most likely it is your poppet seal but I would start by doing a rebuild on the bolt and valve assembly and see if an o-ring is causing your problem, also you could possibly be putting a little too much pressure into the marker from the regulator, I doubt that is the issue but it never hurts to check

2) i would recommend just resetting it to factory settings, remove the battery and push the power button and function button at the same time for 10 seconds

The board settings are fixed now, so does that mean I have to buy a new solenoid piston or...?

it's got nothing to do with your solenoid.

if it was your noid you would also have to have a lot of other bad o-rings in order for it to be venting down the barrel

get a rebuild kit and do a full rebuild of all the o-rings on the marker

chances are it is the poppet seal in the valve, those are not too expensive

here, take a look at this, it really helps you see what is going on inside the marker and why it is not the noid that is your issue
