To diagnose whether the eyes are dirty or broken, turn off the eye to confirm that your marker fires. Turn the eyes back on to see if you fire with paint in the breech. If they still don't work, check to see if they are plugged in as they may wiggle loose and check for damage in the wire.
The early electra had trouble with 9v batterys sometimes. They have a long solenoid pin that take more energy than needed to trip the sear, this was later fixed as i was led to believe. Make sure to just get 9.6v with PROPER charger and use the 9v as the back up.
As far as the line up with the hole, take the one side of the grip off and using your finger gently push down on the port till it lines up to take a charger. They mass produced by tadao anyway so all kingman might do is send you a new board. Not worth the hassle to wait, just don't force it too much.

Power off is your safety.
08 and newer models do not have a jumper. The shooting modes are only accessible through pressing a combination of buttons.

WITH NO AIR IN THE SYSTEM!!!!!! unscrew the frame a bit and the sear will be far enough away from the frame to release the spring tension if your battery is not powered up or you have a bad board.

as for if you can get it into the safe mode, look in the manual
There is a safe mode, It boots up in safe, push the power button to fire and the light turns green, and push the power button again and the light turns red to be safe. Hold the power button and it will turn off.
