Spyder Clone Etrigger problem

Gun powers on but the solenoid isn't clicking. Batteries test good, Tried with and without paint with no difference (This model has eyes)

I have little to no experience with electronic issues and would love some suggestions on how to chase down the problem.

Could be the board, Capacitor or the Noid/clapper.Whats the brand name and model?
If the capacitor is bubbled or has a crack or discolored on the top ,its no good.

I'm pretty sure you got a bad capacitor, common problem with Spyder boards and clone boards.

Are you using a 9.6v? Most won't work with a regular 9.

This is a notorious issue with the capacitors on those boards. Replacing them is easy and cheap.

It's an ACI Blind Rage, actually same problem on 3 of them. New old stock. These were set up to run on a 9v and 2 AAA's instead of a 9.6v. I'll check the capacitors for signs of damage and maybe grab a clapper from a working one and see if it will work in any of these ones.

If you take a picture of the board, I might have a few I could send you instead of tossing them in the trash...

Noted and appreciated.

I ended up having to check some items off the honey do list instead of tearing back into these yesterday. I'm in hopes to get them apart today or tomorrow.

How long has it been since the maker was used? I was doing some marker maintenance on an icon (spyder clone) yesterday morning that was acting similarly. The brand new name brand battery was good, the board turned on but the clapper noid wouldn't activate to fire the marker. I started to work through the trouble shooting list and in the end it turned out that the clapper noid needed to be manually pushed in a couple of times because it had sat unused for over a year and was sticking. I put a hopper through it without issue right after. Before you tear anything appart or replace anything perhaps check and see if you are having a similar situation.

Best of luck and happy fixing.

My guess would be it's been YEARS. I'll try that as well.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm pretty good with most guns but as soon as you get electronics involved my ignorance is pretty clear.
