G5: Shooting Issue

Marker will not fire or has a problem firing. Check the items below. Reference the manual if needed.

Issue:
Aired Up with No Leaks & Won't Fire:
    • Battery: Make sure you start with a brand new battery in your gun as an old one will cause issues. 

    • ASA: Check that the pin on your ASA is making contact with your air tank and air is pressurizing your gun.

    • Operating Pressure: Verify your Operating Pressure Regulator (aka OPR or HPR) is supplying enough air to cycle your marker. Adjust if necessary. Turning the adjustment screw on the OPR clockwise will Decrease pressure to your marker while turning it counterclockwise will Increase pressure. When increasing pressure, do it 1/8th of a turn at a time. 

    • Board Connectors: Remove the 3 screws on the left side of your grips to access the board and verify that all connectors going to the main board are properly seated (battery harness, eyes, solenoid and on/off button).

    • Eyes: Power on your marker and check the eyes to make sure they are on and functional. With the eyes on, sticking your finger into the feedneck should cause the light to change from slow blinking green to a solid green. If the eyes are not responding, try wiping them down using a cotton swab in the breech. If this doesn't do it, you'll need to remove the eye cover plates and pull the sensor out from each side and clean them. 

    • Not Responding to Trigger Pulls: Remove the 3 screws on the left side of your grips to access the board, power up your marker, and turn the eyes off (the light should go from a slow blink, to a fast blink). Pull the trigger and verify your trigger is making contact with the micro switch and causes the solenoid to click. If the solenoid doesn't click, check to make sure the solenoid wire is securely connected to the board. If this isn't happening, trying turning the trigger adjustment screws to increase the trigger travel distance.  

    • Dwell: Check your dwell and try resetting it back to the factory default setting of 12ms.

  • Dwell: Check your dwell and try resetting it back to the factory default setting of 12ms.

  • HPR Pressure: Verify your Operating Pressure Regulator (aka OPR or HPR) is supplying enough air to cycle your marker. Adjust if necessary. Turning the adjustment screw on the OPR clockwise will Decrease pressure to your marker while turning it counterclockwise will Increase pressure. When increasing pressure, do it 1/8th of a turn at a time.

Marker Breaking Paint:
  • Operating Pressure: Verify your Operating Pressure Regulator (aka OPR or HPR) is supplying enough air to cycle your marker. Adjust if necessary. Turning the adjustment screw on the OPR clockwise will Decrease pressure to your marker while turning it counterclockwise will Increase pressure. When increasing pressure, do it 1/8th of a turn at a time. 

  • Eyes: Check the eyes and make sure they are on and functional. With the eyes on, sticking your finger into the feedneck should cause the light to change from a slow blinking green to a solid green. If not, make sure the eyes are clean and not blocked by dirt or old paint.

  • Detents: Check your detents for excessive wear/damage. Replace if needed.

  • Breech: Inspect the breech to confirm there isn't any debris that would cause you to break paint.

  • Paint: Make sure you're using good quality paintballs and that you have a good paint to barrel match. Check out the video below for info on getting a good paint to barrel match.
