Emag no workie

Got a quick question on my emag. Had it out at the field the other day and I played with it most of the day. Battery was fully charged. I had it in E mode and it shot great for 50 rounds or so then it would just stop shooting and I would have to put it in RT mode to keep playing. I tried pulling back the magnet on the trigger thinking it had to do with the hall effect sensor but it didn't help. Other than that the gun was flawless.

So the gun stayed on, but would not shoot?

Yeah. It just stopped shooting in electro. When I put the pin back in and pull it it works again.

Sounds like a bad battery. Can you get a voltmeter on it?

Yeah, that happened to me back in April. My battery had been "fully charged" sitting in my gearbox for a few months. When I started playing, it cut out. I could hear it click like it was wanting to shoot, but there just wasn't enough juice for the solenoid to pull the sear.

A good charge for the battery fixed that. (It wasn't a bad battery, it was a brand new KC battery)

I have no idea how old the pack is but I took it off the charger earlier that morning after it was charged over nIght. I have a meter. What should the voltage read?

They usually read 18 to 19 volts when charged.

Do you have an oring on the bottom of the battery pack. It could be that the contacts aren't tight.

Try to shim it up a little or bend the contacts up a little. I know it happened to my old Emag once. Also make sure that the battery pack is screwed in tight.
