So I just bought this gun from my friend for 100 he says that it worked fine and everything I have known him for a long time and know that he would not try to scam me so I took the gun home and took it apart and cleaned it because there was old paint gunked up on it etc so when I put it back together I go for a couple of test shots and I pull the cocker back and pull the trigger nothing happened all I could hear was the clicking sound from the e-trigger which I also took apart to replace the battery so after a couple more pulls of the trigger it finally shoots and this is now an ongoing problem sometimes it won't even shoot I just want to know if anyone knows how to fix this problem or has had this problem also thanks

Any idea what board it has?

I'd suggest using another new battery or two just to make sure that's not the problem. If that doesn't help I'd check the wiring, if it's not damaged I'd take a look at the capacitor to see if it's bulging on either end.

Caps look like this:

They can come in different sizes and colors.

It's not the trigger, it's an electrical problem most likely.

It's an electrical problem.

I'm willing to bet the capacitor has gone bad.

Okay now this is interesting. You say the e-trigger is clicking. That is caused by the capacitor moving up and down so this doesn't seem to be an electronics issue. Is the long pin connecting the capacitor to the sear-pin sitting on top of the capacitor nipple?

I am kinda confused by this because it seems like the problem was intermittent at some point. I don't know. Check that the long pin is seated properly because that pushes up against the sear-pin and releases the rear-bolt. Make sure you have the right sear pin too. The eye of the pin should be perfectly round, not ovular.

Oh yeah, if it's the capacitor, you'll probably just have to order one. Mechanical stuff you can fix, electronics are a different animal and I avoid messing with wires.

Check that you have replaced the pin or firing pin that releases the bolt.Also,if you are lost as to what to do, do as the previous Paintball users have said.... Get a youtube video to see how exactly the e trigger assembly goes inside the marker and so on.......make sure you have air and always pull back the cocking bolt after you have snuggly fit the hpa, Just to be certain it will fire....Take care

Like most have said. I would check the solenoid that pops the pin up to the sear to see if it is working. Mine went bad. You could hear it clicking, but the pin wasn't moving. I called tippmann and sent it to them and they replaced it and the board for hardly no charge. good luck.
