Spyder imagine e trigger not cycling

For some reason the clapernoid or solenoid won't trip the sear when the bolt is cocked back. As shown in the video it clicks and trips the sear perfectly fine when the bolt is not cocked back but when it is cocked the added tension of the bolt on the sear I assume is to strong for the clapper to hit it and trip the sear to fire the marker. Don't know if that made sense but its what looks like the issue

New battery? But most likely a standard 9v isn't going to cut it. These are known for being picky, need a 9.6v battery to work.

Try a fresh, brand name battery. If that doesn’t work odds are the capacitor most likely is going kaput.

Hello,

I don't believe its your battery. It's the Capacitor. The Capacitor is the black round connector that is soldered above to the Circuit Board. 1 side of the Capacitor which will be opposite of the 2 lead wires will have a bulge. You will have to de-solder and re-solder a new one.

Why this can happen. If you use any standard 9v battery the Coil Set/Clapper is working harder to withdraw insufficient battery power and the Capacitor just burns out. If you use a 9.6v 190mah or 230mah the Battery you will never have this issue.

I used the PowerEx 9.6v 230mah on my 2009 Spyder Electra w/Eye for over 9+ years never had an issue. If you don't believe me, look up on Youtube " 2009 Spyder Electra w/Eye 22bps No Ball Breaks " that's my Gun. I took it out at SC Village and had a BLAST.

Plus I worked for Kingman/Spyder for 15 years so I know what's up.

Previous owner said he always used 9v, I used a 9.6v and still not helping. So yeah I guess I need a new electrolytic capacitor

Here is what you need. I've also bought this item and they work fine.
Highly suggest you have a modest grasp of soldering and how to use shrink wrap. The Spyder board is very easy to do this replacement on using correct technique.

It is out of stock but this is what you want.

Try a 9.6v battery first, if still no luck, capacitor/new board

Dude, they're pretty cheap, you can probably find one locally for under $25. Sprawl-Mart may even have them, and if not Lowe's, Home Depot, and hobby stores usually do.
