    Default Need Help.. Not firing. GLV-3

    Hello all. Very frustrated. The GLV-3 was working great then all of a sudden it sopped firing.
    I remvoed the GLV from the feeder, tried different attys, cartos, and batteries. I then adjusted the center pen using the ball and hex screw and it still won't fire.
    I put a nice tank on the GLV then adjusted the center pen and got it tight, loosed end back and still won't fire. I think something is damaged in the head cap where the button is. Any thoughts?

    I really appreciate any feedback

    Not sure what to tell ya aruga .... my GLV3 Mini doesn't have a center pin, it has a ring type of thing for the feed needle to go up thru. I have had a couple of my GLV2s go off a bit to where I had to adjust them a couple of times.
    Maybe call Jay and Sara tomorrow and ask them?

    My GLV3 Mini did that once on me. I cleaned it real good and put nolox on the threads and the center where the battery makes contact and it started working like a champ again. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the advice.
    I spoke with Jay and apparently mine has a bad capacitor or resistor so it had to be shipped back for repair. I just received it back from pain and repair a week ago, but Jay said they did not replace internal parts if the device is working correctly. Makes sense to me.
    Apparently there was a bad batch of those things and some have been fixed, and now it's mines turn.

    Again thanks to all who posted.
