SolutionConfirm that the vision system is on and functioning properly.

Possible Cause: Worn, damaged or jammed ball detents.

Solution:Remove and inspect the ball detent system from both sides. Clean and repair as needed.

Shocker RSX looses velocity while firing

Possible Cause: Tank supply pressure to low

SolutionConfirm air supply tank has sufficient air. Tank output pressure is recommended to be 850PSI for ROF 15bps and above.

Possible Cause: Bolt system requires lubrication

Solution: Follow the instructions regarding bolt maintenance. Only lubricate your Shocker RSX with authentic GR33SE.

Possible Cause: Air source not fully engaged.

Solution: Confirm that your tank is fully screwed into the air source adapter(ASA). Confirm that the ASA knob is screwed in fully and snug.

Shocker RSX produces a velocity spike

Possible Cause: Dwell set too low – First shot drop setting momentarily increases dwell causing velocity spike

SolutionReset dwell to factory setting – 18ms

Possible Cause: Regulator Issue

SolutionClean, inspect and lubricate regulator

Shocker RSX has Inconsistent Velocity

Possible Cause: Paintball Quality or Bore Matching

Solution: Only use high quality paintballs with your Shocker RSX. Check to make sure paintballs fit snugly but do not jam when manually placed in your barrel.

Possible Cause: Dwell set too low – bolt does not stay forward long enough to deliver enough air

SolutionReset dwell to factory setting -18ms

Possible Cause: Bolt system requires lubrication

SolutionFollow the instructions regarding bolt maintenance. Only lubricate your Shocker RSX with authentic GR33SE.

Shocker RSX cannot achieve required velocity (too low)

Possible Cause: Dwell is too low – bolt does not stay forward long enough to deliver required air

SolutionSet dwell to factory setting – 18ms. If playing in inclement weather you may need to increase dwell over the factory setting. Increase dwell by single increments

checking the velocity after each change.

Possible Cause: QEV restrictor screw is adjusted in too far

SolutionReset restrictor screw to factory depth.

Possible Cause: Bolt system requires lubrication

Solution:Follow the instructions regarding bolt maintenance. Only lubricate your Shocker RSX with authentic GR33SE.

Shocker RSX cannot achieve required velocity (too high)

Possible Cause: Dwell setting is too high – the bolt will remain forward longer than needed releasing additional air.

Solution: Reset the dwell to factory setting 18ms

Possible Cause: Incorrect adjustment of velocity through regulator

SolutionReference the velocity adjustment section of the Quick Start Guide. User should turn their allen key clockwise to increase velocity and counter-clockwise to reduce velocity.

Shocker RSX has Poor Air Efficiency

Possible Cause: Barrel bore does not match paintball size

SolutionRemove the barrel from the marker, and insert a paintball into the threaded end. The paintball should neither roll through, or get stuck at the opening. A properly matched paintball will be able to be blown down the barrel by the users breath, as if using a blow gun.

Possible Cause: Dwell is set too high – the bolt will remain forward longer than needed releasing additional air.

SolutionReset the dwell to factory setting-18ms

Shocker RSX bolt system will not latch into place

Possible Cause: Improper assembly of bolt system

SolutionConsult the bolt diagram portion of this website, confirm that the bolt system is properly assembled.

Possible Cause: Bolt system is not tightened, or not fully threaded

SolutionConfirm that all bolt components are screwed snuggly together and not cross threaded.

Possible Cause: The front bumper o-ring remained in the body when the bolt kit was removed

SolutionRemove the bumper o-ring from the body and re-install the bumper onto the bolt system prior to re-installation.

Possible Cause: The latch system is dirty or improperly assembled

SolutionConsult the latch parts diagram portion of this website and confirm proper assembly.

Shocker RSX cannot achieve set rate of fire - BPS limit

Possible Cause: Dwell setting is too high – bolt stays in its forward position to long, limiting the cycle rate.

Solution: Return the dwell setting to factory – 18ms

Possible Cause: Bolt system requires lubrication

Solution: Follow the instructions regarding bolt maintenance. Only lubricate your Shocker RSX with authentic GR33SE.

Paintballs Not Feeding into Breach

Possible Cause : Blowback – Air blowing back up the feed tube preventing proper paint feeding.

Solution(1)Incorrect O-ring on the bolt tip  – Replace

Solution(2): Dwell setting is too low – reset to 15-17ms  (Uncapped Semi-Auto should use lower dwell to achieve higher ROF)

Solution(3): QEV Restrictor screw is in to far – reset to factory (# of turns from all the way in?)

Possible Cause: Swollen Paintballs not fitting in the feed tube

Solution: Check to make sure your paintballs fit down the feed tube, only use quality paintballs with your Shocker RSX

to the main board.

Two or more balls are fed into the breach during a single cycle

Possible Cause: Worn, damaged or jammed ball detents.

SolutionRemove and inspect the ball detent system from both sides. Clean and repair as needed.

Possible Cause: Paintball loader is applying to much force to the paintball stack

SolutionAdjust the loader’s settings to reduce force exerted on the paintball stack

Difficulty installing or removing trigger frame from marker body

Possible Cause: In correct grip screws – Screws are protruding into grip frame and into the solenoid body.

SolutionOnly use factory provided or factory replacement parts on your Shocker RSX.

Shocker RSX Electronic Troubleshooting

Shocker RSX will not power on

Possible Cause: The battery of the Shocker RSX is worn out or poor quality.

Solution: Replace the battery with a 9 volt Alkaline battery.

Possible Cause: The wiring harness between the battery and the board is unplugged or damaged.

Solution: Inspect the wiring harness connecting the battery to the main board.

Shocker RSX turns on in Programming Mode without holding the trigger

Possible Cause: The trigger is pressing agains the board switch

Solution (1):  The trigger setscrews must be adjusted so that the trigger does not contact the board while it is at rest.

Solution (2): The trigger is jammed by debris and is resting on the board switch.  Remove debris from around trigger.

Shocker RSX will not enter Programing Mode

Possible Cause: The programming lock has been engaged so that adjustments cannot be made through the trigger. Indicated by a closed lock symbol on the OLED screen.

Solution: Disengage the programing lock by removing the grips and pressing the programming lock button located on the main board. It is important to note, this must be done while the marker is powered on. *WARNING* Remove all paintballs and air sources before preforming any maintenance to the marker.

Shocker RSX Eye System Shows "FAULT"

Possible Cause: Dirt or Debris in sensor hole.

Solution: Carefully remove eyes, using a soft rag or q-tip clean and inspect the sensor holes.

Possible Cause:Bolt system requires lubrication – bolt is not fully cycling and triggering “FAULT” in the eye system.

Solution:Follow the instructions regarding bolt maintenance contained in this manual. Only lubricate your Shocker RSX with authentic GR33SE.

Possible Cause:QEV restrictor screw is adjusted in too far – Bolt system is not cycling fast enough and triggering “FAULT” in the eye system

SolutionReset restrictor screw to factory depth.

Possible Cause:Paintball hopper is not fully seated into the feed tube or has other feed restriction

Solution:Make sure the hopper is fully seated in the feed tube, and consult the hoppers manual for proper settings and maintenance.

Shocker RSX power button is solid red and will not shut off

Possible Cause: The power button is stuck against the board by debris. – The power button is continually holding in the “pressed” position.

Solution:  Remove debris and assure the power button is able to move in its carrier.

Shocker RSX is not displaying Game Timer

Cause: The Game Timer option is not selected in programing settings.

Solution: Select the Game Timer option in the programming menu.

The battery indicator drops quickly or a fresh battery is not indicated as full

*Version 1.19 uses a voltage/amperage system to indicate battery life. Because 9 volt batteries drop 20-25%  amperage/voltage as soon a draw is placed upon them the first two bars of this meter will be used up quickly, and then hold at that level for 50,000+ cycles. The batery indicator in this version of the software does not indicate battery life as a percentage, but instead displays the actual level of battery output.*

Possible Cause: Rechargeable batteries will likely not show fully charged in the OLED display. This is because they operate at lower amperage than Alkaline batteries. This will not harm the performance of the Shocker RSX.

Possible Cause: A worn or low quality battery is being used.

Solution: Replace the battery with a quality brand 9 Volt Alkaline battery. Do not re-use batteries from other devises in the Shocker RSX.

Possible Cause: The battery has an internal issue limiting its voltage output.

Solution: Replace the battery with an alternative 9 volt Alkaline battery. It is important to note that batteries can be dead or damaged directly from the manufactures packaging.
