Problem with my first viking

Hello guys, I'm a mag guy and decided to get a decent, Non SP, electro but my first viking is killing me. I aired up this viking I bought from a local guy in ATL and it will cock fine, but I think that the noid isn't working right. It's an 03 viking w/ a pandora board. I believe the problem is either the board or the noid. I took the grip frame off to see if everything was plugged in and the first thing that made me think was wow, it's a MAC noid w/ 2 inputs, but it is plugged into the 3 input plug, w/ one input missing. I took out my multimeter and saw that the outputs for the 3 one has two that are the same so I figure that, that should work but the thing that makes me wonder is when I keep the trigger pulled it will go up from 0.2 Volts to around 0.34 volts... The MAC noid says that it takes 6V and 3W, figuring the equation P=IV that either has to be a lot of current or my board just isn't pushing the juice needed to turn the noid on... I was hoping to use this thing next weekend at arkenstone down here, but as it looks I will probably be shooting the Tac or my trusty phantom. Give me a hand guys,

Thanks,
Captain

Sounds like its messed up.

And it also sounds like you are a little out of your league.

I would reccomend sending it to jared at DC Destructive Customs

He will tech and tune it for a good price, and you won't have to touch it for years - well worth it! I just sent 2 excals to him for this service.

Although you already fixed your problem. If you are using a digital meter, you will need to use the peak hold function to accurately determine the voltage. The pulse of voltage is too short for the meter to register properly.

The voltages probably change when it goes to a higher rof doesn't it?
