PostPosted: Fri Apr 04, 2008 7:29 pm    Post subject: ultimate Bushy noob...wiring harness, solenoid????

hi everyone, first post...well to start i picked up a Bushmaster cheap as I had always wanted one...now i have been playing pb for 12 years however this is the first electronic marker i have ever owned...so i am as green as they come....so my problems are as thus....

previous owner stated that the reg is having recharge problems so i either need to re build it or buy a new one...anyone have some good suggestions as to a good one...(not looking to spend a fortune)

the board (old style 12 pin) has a broken "pin" so the marker currently only fires in semi mode (or at least thats what I think is the problem, if I am off base please enlighten me!) semi is ok i guess but i really would like a fully functioning marker.

and here is the main problem...the marker worked ok once i figured out that the connectors had worked loose from the board, re attached it, fresh battery etc....got the marker to cycle etc...so im reasonably happy....then as I am reassembling it, I snap one of the 2 wires off the soleniod...

so my question really is what do i need to do to fix this.....

do i need a new harness or solenoid? are these available? is this a self fix?

please keep in mind i know nothing about electronics at all

if this is super easy i might fix it, i just dont want to mess it up any further, (at least now i can attempt to sell it here or ebay it for parts)

i guess i am somewhat surprised as to how fragile the wiring/electonics are...

so if anyone has any suggestions Im all ears..

thank you for your time...

I see you've discovered the notoriously bad ICD wiring harnesses:) Whoever designed it was an idiot for sure.

If there's a bit of wire left sticking out of the solenoid, solder the wires back together and that should solve that.

Is a pin missing on the connection where the wiring harness plugs in?

unfortunately I snapped the wire flush with the solenoid...thats bad isnt it.

and yes there is a pin missing on the board, is there supposed to be?

i cant believe the wiring, and the design...that is the most user unfriendly design ive seen, i guess i dont feel so bad for breaking the thing...other than that i like the marker..love how blocky it is cant stand all the current "swirly" body designs...

thanks!

Buy yourself a better HPR. The stock one is crap. You can buy Evil Detonators for dirt cheap on eBay.

That pin is supposed to be missing. The stock 9300 boards were semi only so if your board says: ICD 9300 Rev.X (where X is the revision, typically C). Then you have semi automatic only.

Get some Dean's Micro Quick Disconnect plugs from a hobby shop ($2-5). Solder the lead back onto the solenoid if at all possible (you may need to take the plastic housing off the top of the noid to get at it). Use the quick disconnects to prevent further strain on that section of the harness when taking apart the marker.

If you don't feel comfortable doing that, get a friend who is confident to help out.

Read all you can about this kinda stuff.

If you don't have a friend or a co-worker that can solder an electronic repair store would repair it for pretty cheap. I mean its like a 5 minute repair job with a soldering iron.
