SOme of those frames, and pardon me for not looking really closely at the pic you provided...will allow for adjustment of the solenoid. Sometimes the screws will loosen as you play and the 'noid will move, and doesn't have the room left to clear the sear.

Don't use commercial 9V batteries in Spyders with stock boards unless it's an "emergency" You need a high voltage output or a 9.6V specifically designed for them. The cap sucks too much juice.

Buy a 9.6V, or get an aftermarket setup that lets you run COTS batteries.

We never had an issue with grip charging at the shop. Hell that's all we had and it worked fine.

That said, you need the 9.6 for it to work, it needs a good charge, and a not-blown capacitor. It may look ballooned or have a crusty brown substance near the ends. If either of those are seen, it requires a new capacitor. Not difficult to do, in fact iirc spyder can send you a new one and walk you through the soldering as well.

The cap could also be tested with a multimeter....might be able to locate one for cheapish.
