This includes problems relating to the powerswitch, LED, battery, and solenoid not clicking issues. Please refer to the other Troubleshooting pages for information about Vision or general leaking/shooting problems respectively.

Listed are the gun's symptom along with a series of possible causes, and how to remedy them. The possible causes are in a specific order, more likely first with the less likely causes lower down the list. When diagnosing problems, you should try each item listed in order.

LED blinks but solenoids don't click (LS board only).
If the LED blinks when the trigger is pulled, the most common problem is a low battery; replace it.

LED doesn't blink when trigger is clicked (LS board only).
The trigger isn't actuating the microswitch. Adjust the trigger's firing point or post-travel set screw so that it correctly actuates the board's microswitch.
Remove the circuit board and inspect the microswitch for damage. If necessary, turn the marker on and manually click the microswitch. If the LED blinks then the trigger isn't actuating the microswitch; if the LED doesn't blink then either the microswitch or board has become damaged. The microswitch can be replaced, however boards are in short supply.

LS board doesn't turn on when the slide powerswitch is actuated.
Separate the circuit housing from Shocker body and manually actuate the powerswitch. If necessary remove the board from the circuit housing and push the switch with your finger. If it doesn't work then the switch or board is damaged (the microswitch can be replaced, however boards are in short supply). If it does turn on then the slide switch actuator may be damaged.

Solenoids don't click when trigger is pulled (DS board only)
Verify that the battery is indeed plugged into the board.
Inspect the wiring and look for any damage. If any wires are noticeably crimped, replace the wire with a new one (or send it in for a repair).
DS boards don't have a board indicator LED, however they do have a low battery LED in the front (red). When you turn the board off, the low battery LED will blink once very quickly (this is due to the board's power loss when turning off). If your low battery LED doesn't blink when you turn the board off, then it's likely that the board actually isn't on in the first place, and is damaged somehow. You may wish to replace the battery wiring and/or battery.
If the low battery LED does indeed blink when you turn the board off, the trigger microswitch may be the problem. Remove the circuit board and inspect the microswitch for damage. If necessary, turn the board on and manually click the microswitch. If the solenoids click then the trigger isn't actuating the microswitch, and will have to be adjusted. If the solenoids don't click then either the microswitch or board has become damaged. The microswitch can be replaced, however boards are in short supply.
