Invert mini gun repair. HELP ME

I have an invert mini i bought a while ago and it seems like i just changed battery and now like tons of air leaks out after every shot and it wastes a lot of air=a lot of money. Is it the batterie or poppit?

Battery
It's important not to cheap out that noid DEMANDS a nice battery
I don't often use batterys in my paintball markers, but when i do I use lithium batterys the almost nothing there weight is all the justification I need.

Battery will have nothing to do with air leaks. although a good battery is always a plus.
if it leaks down the barrel try reseating the poppit.
where does the air leak from?

I was thinking along the lines that the solenoid is a electro-magnet without proper power to reset it... it could be stuck open or closed..

Power on the marker eyes off with no air... listen to marker when you pull the trigger.. does the noid click

There is defiantly a list of things that could be happening, more info, like where the leak is coming from will help narrow your search to the problem. Also I know youtube has tons of people posting problems and solutions with their mini's that also might help if you can match the situation with one of their own. More info, the more help we all can give you.

Welcome to the forums !

ace hardware is your best friend for missing screws. make sure to chase the threads with the appropriate thread tap first.

Your leak could be a sticking solenoid.

Remove the air source and dry fire it 5-6 times, and listen for the solenoid to click. That should reset it.

If that does not work, I would try taking the solenoid apart and cleaning it. Reassemble it dry and see if that helps.

My TM7 had the same problem, and that is how I fixed it. It happens once in a while especially if it has been sitting.

This is on the upgraded version that is not supposed to do this as well.
