Emag toubleshooting? I've got no E Mode

Quick question for you guys, could you point me to a troubleshooting guide for Emags? I googled the manual, and I have to say it's pretty much uselss.

Basically, the problem I'm having is I have no response in Emode only. Mech mode everything works great. Hybrid everything works great. In Emode, I just get a stiff trigger and no response. Any ideas?

My only thought is maybe it doesn't work because it's not fully trickled charged? I let it charge until it turned green. Dunno if that makes a difference.

So if I understand correctly, you get the solenoid to trip when in hybrid mode? You hear the click?

Yea, Hybrid mode seems to be a none issue, I've just got nothing in emode.

I'm gonna say to adjust your trigger. Hybrid mode gives you a full pull of the trigger. E mode incorporates trigger stops to adjust your pull. I would add some slack to your pull and try to engage the HE sensor then readjust it to your liking after you get shooting again.

Charge your battery over night. It turning green doesn't mean isn't fully charged. If you're still having issues after you've left it over night, try adjusting your trigger magnet to and from the HALL sensor. If you're still having issues let us know, you'll have to dig deeper.

Darn! That guide is great! But now I miss my old blue emag from back in the day. I should have kept that one.

I had a similar issue where the clevis wasn't turned in far enough on the solenoid (the clippy thing that attaches the solenoid to the sear). The sear wasn't being stroked far enough to trip the on/off. A real PITA figuring that one out! It should be 3.005" from the tip of the solenoid plunger to the top of the clevis I believe.

Thanks for the help, guys! I did a full charge overnight, and immediatly started getting a response out of emode. So it will now fully cycle on E. However, there is still some trigger issues. It doesn't want to return far enough to allow for the next shot. So I'll work on the trigger this evening with the provided guide. Thanks for your help!
