Electra issues

This past sunday I was having issues breaking balls like no other. First time in 4 weeks of using it and I'm not sure why. I was using field paint along with everyone else so dont think it was the paint.
With ball breaking came a few others, whats it mean when the eye is blinking, would shoot 1or 2 balls then stop then 1-2 and stop again..
It was a day of frustration for this newbie and would like to have an idea of what caused this so I can better deal with it in the field.

Since then I have tore it down and rebuild, lubing and cleaning everything. Tomorrow we have practice so will find out if she's good to go or not but looking for info on my issues and atleast what blinking eye means.
Thanks

Hey great, thanks for that. I turned it up (I believe it was you that told me) to get my velocity up. Still cant get that up past 280. I guess I will work on that..

a) get a spring kit. might need to cut a few notches off to get it to work properly. or compress it a bit b4 putting in your gat.

b) size your barrel to your paint. i found i needed to underbore to get a good chrono off the electra

as for turning it up, you might have turned it up a touch too high? it took some fine adjusting (and shredding about 6 reg o-rings) before i got a good setting
THis is what I did, turned the pressure up on the front handle thing. I turned it clockwise all the way. Then adjusted the volocity screw in to get it up.
Ok few questions.
I'm not sure I messed with the spring, other then screwing in the volocity screw. Is that what you mean about messing with the spring?
I only have stock and a J&J ceramic barrel. Do I need to pick up a few more barrels? What ones would you recommend?

After reading your post it took me awhile to understand what you ment but ended up watching a vid and found I was turning the wrong way. Went clockwise but should have went CCW. This tells me that me breaking balls wasn't from being to high..lol
