I picked up and 05 prostock with the worr-frame and the connectors for the battery seem to have detached themselves from the board. do these have to be soldered back in place or what? I can get pics in a minute.
Previous to this happening, the battery was held in very loosely and the gun would only stay on if I held it upsidedown.

Update and a bit more info.
If I hold a 9volt up to the connectors on the board it turns on. But now I have another issue. Airs up fine, solenoid clicks but then all I'm getting is a second "click" form the 3 way. no shooting.
Its really a bit odd. When I first got the gun I noticed the slightly dodgy connectors but it aired up and dryfired fine (fast too =). But when I tried to put paint through it, it would cycle just barely. It would load a ball and the next ball would just push that ball into the barrel. So i thought velocity was low. turned it up 1 turn and reassembled. I got a few more barely cycling low pressure shots before the battery issues arose.
Any help'd be great.
Tank output is 850 is that is relavent. roughly 3000 psi in it.
Well I guess the second "click" is from the 3-way solenoid up front? It's a bone stock setup. Picture below.
I don't want to mess with the LPR but I think It must be down to a pressure/timing issue now that it won't cycle. Unless someone thinks it's bad electronics. I dialed the velocity back to where it was originally and had the same result.

sounds like the lpr is shut off.
and you should be able buy a new board on pbgateway for around $30
or solder the battery contacts back on.
Yea I turned up the LPR a tad and it's shooting fine now.
Dammit. I have'nt soldered since high school.
Thanks for the tips.
The first thing I always do is set the gun to its factory fast settings. Turn the eyes off and lpr all the way off. Turn it in a half turn as you attempt to shoot it. Once it fires smoothly turn it 1/4 turn farther. At this point I sharpie a mark on the lpr to ensure the screw is not creeping.
As for soldering its real easy as the contacts are rather large. I don't for see you having any issues here
Don't solder the battery contacts back on
Make a stop at your local electronics store and get a 9v harness, and solder tha on
That way you don't have to worry about the pressure against the contacts, or little variations in battery length, just clip it to the top
It's what I did with my select fire frame
Also, if you want to use the fire modes, and don't have a jumper, you can use a 2 pin jumper off a hard drive or cd drive
I completely agree on getting a 9v harness in there. I picked one up from Radio Shack and soldered it in there. I've never soldered in my life, but it still wasn't too bad. Only barely burned myself...
