    Post Emag electronics

    A few months ago I got a Emag
    The gun works great on mechanical mode but the electronics are not working.
    I've messed around with a volt o meter and the battery is working fine and the connecting from the battery to the conecters are good but the guns electronics are still not firing up.
    Any ideas or thoughts would be helpful.
    Thanks

    If there's a chance you have Xmod firmware, check to make sure that your trigger magnet isn't set too close to the HES as that will prevent the board from booting up as a safety measure.

    Other than that, it's a pretty hard thing to troubleshoot. Might be better off sending it out to Tuna or OneSelfLost for repair and tuning.

    Its not just X-mod firmware that causes this. The AGD firmware also does this.


    Make sure the magnet can get far enough forward to allow the HES to reset. Make sure the magnet isn't in backwards.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.

    Make sure the ground screw that goes through the circuit board is clean and screwed all the way in and making good contact with the board and that the hole it threads into is also clean.

    If the electronics are screwed up, you can also contact "OneSelfLost" - he can probably fix it

    Didn't realize that. Learn something new every day, right?

    You get it to boot up, and it will tell you by scrolling across the screen.

    See my first reply for the name drop and the link.



    Additionally, make sure that the HES is installed correctly. I once bought a "broken" Emag for dirt cheap because it didn't work in e-mode. All I had to do was put the HES in its slot going the correct direction, and it worked like a champ. TK did a quick series of videos on the Emag assembly and disassembly - they're on YouTube and listed in one of the sticky posts at the top of the Tech forum. Check those out and that will help explain and help you do a lot of troubleshooting.
