PostSubject: ECHO 1 X36C CHARGER   Fri Jan 18, 2008 8:01 pm

I decided to use my x36c for the first time the other day. I had fully charged the battery the day before. I started shooting and it worked fine. After about 300 rounds it just stopped working. I tried unclogging it but it doesnt do anything. What should i do?confused

how long did you charge the battery?

Here are several reasons

Battery is not fully charged

Jammed

Fuse blew

You have a lemon


Do invest in a smart charger. I have one that is 30 bucks and works great. I have left my battery plugged into it for a while and it was fine. Plus it charges batteries in like 15-30 minutes.

Did it make any noises when it stopped shooting like a whine or a pop? Try charging the battery again and see if you get the same result. If you do then its the battery itself. If it still doesnt work check the fuse like stated above or you might have an even more serious internal problem. Try it again and get back to us.

PS: I would invest in a universal charger which will shut off when the battery is at capacity. This makes overcharging impossible and is care-free.

I don't kn know much about this topic, but it sounds like what my AK did to me, ever once in a while it would stop firing for no reason, i think it was some problem with the battery making contacted with the gun.

you can tape it? Electrical tape

I dont think it is a battery, that happened to my ECHO 1 M4A1, what you do is take the gun apart, in the internal barrel where the hop up is attached to, there will be a BB or more than 1 BB cloged inside there, get the unjamming rod to get rid of it one unjamming techniuqe is to flip the gun upside down, and stick the rod in, make sure there is no clip in, then fire if your gun isn't jammed to badly than this should work, I will explain it better later

I am having the same exact problem with my G&G MP-5. It worked for 200 rounds (1 hi-cap) then just stopped working. I charged another battery and it still didn't work. I have the uninversal smart charger and both of the batteries were fully charged. Just thought I would post this in this topic instead of making a new one.

Please check your fuses, and and check if BBs are jammed. Also check the connection to the motor, the tabs that connect to it may have come off.

Otherwise, all that i could think of is poor saudering. The wires that go to the gear box may have been poorly saudered, and have possibly lost connection.

I just need a good explination of "Doesn't work".

First, check the fuse.

When you have the battery fully charged and attached, pull the trigger. Is there any sound coming from the motor in the grip? Does it start to spin and lock up, or does nothing happen at all?

If you can hear the motor spin, it's a good thing. If not, there's a lot more explinations, such as shorting, fired batteries, fried motors, fuses, wiring dicsonnections, etc.

If the motor spins, but locks up, try tightening the motor base plate on the bottom of the pistol grip. It could be that the motor isin't quite meshing with the gears. Other ideas could be that the battery is fried, and can't produce voltages in the useable range anymore. Then there could also be jams with the piston, or just with BB's.

If you pull out the rear reciever pin and "break" the body apart, you'll be able to see the gearbox. When you look at it, the piston in the back holed section could be forced back all the way, meaning that you've shot on auto the last time you used it and it didn't fully cycle. The battery can try to push the piston back into place but it can be very difficult and put much strain on the battery, so I would suggest manually pushing the piston all the way back to relieve the pressure on the gears.

Lot of things to check. Be as specific as you can with your description and it'll be that much easier to diagnose your problem(s).

And of course there are other things that could be wrong, but I'm not going to sit here and rattle off tests to check unless I can really understand what's wrong with it.

well, if you do here the motor, then there is usually a jam in the second barrel, that you can only get out by taking apart the gun
