Broken TM Aug, please help me figure!

45 posts in this topic

I'll do just that REM, cheers mate. I've not had a chance to put it back together yet but when I do, I'll report back.

Right, well I've got the setup in front of me. Yet again I've spent ages trying to get a connection and wriggle the wires around to see if there are any loose connections/broken wires but I've got nothing.

 

I must admit, it's got me quite frustrated, should in theory be an easy thing to diagnose but doesn't seem to be!

 

My view is that due to me not getting anything at all out of the motor when connected, it's either

 

a) A broken motor, in which case I'll have to get a new one anyway so may aswell investigate b!

 

b ) A problem in the circuit that would require removing connectors and re-wiring...

 

 

Just seems it's hard to distinguish at this point if I'm wasting my time on trying to sort the circuit when it could just be the motor...

 

A little disheartened...

OMG the trigger assembly is RIDICULOUS on this gun! Oh how I wish it was simple!!! :D I can't even get it back together!

 

I'm going to bed, but will attempt more tomorrow.

 

I now see (and feel) why people that are new to airsoft look like idiots if they faff with mechboxes!

Did you get the trigger system back together? I could take mine apart and demonstrate if necessary.

I plan to rewire the gearbox this week (same configuration) and obviously that requires more wire!

 

What would be the best wire to use? I've read that both 16AWG & 18AWG are suitable but are there any variations in the types of these 2 gauges? What would be the best and sort of relatively affordable wire to go for?

 

Cheers

Component shop stock wire of different gauges, as far as I'm aware there is no difference between wire of the same gauge.

 

If you check the current wire you should be able to see what AWG wire is currently being used (16/18) and I'd just go for the same again :)

Cheers Dev, you've helped me in my seemingly impossible quest to fix this ###### thing :D

 

Cheers mate, I'll have a look!

 

I tell you what, this gun better be good when I'm done!!! :D

If not, I'll be there to catch it when you throw it off of that building!

Hahahaha you're just waiting for my failure!!!

 

I read the wires and they're Sanyo. All they say is <PS>E JET SANYO DENSEN VSF 2002.

 

lol, I was baffled by that. Had a look on component shop- going to get 2 metres of 16 & 2 metres of 18. It's a great price so can afford to try things!

 

You guys here are brilliant! Cheers!

A small update, for those who care :D

 

We got it together today and my mechbox is once again 'one' item rather than 2170459730497125 bits. It's still not working but we think it may be that I have the incorrect battery charger. It's a NiCd charger and my battery is a 8.4 NiMh :rolleyes: Stupid me, I just *assumed* that it'd be alright.

 

We tested various parts of the circuit and all of it was fine, even the circuit running through the motor. Might still be the motor.

 

Next test (and yet another question for you) will be to get myself a smart charger. Are there any decent but affordable ones about that you know of? If I can discount the battery then I'm finally at the knackered motor diagnosis.

 

Any help much appreciated!

I've gone one better Dev and bought the next one up with a little more power. Brill stuff, cheers mate.

It is with the utmost relief and mass thanks that I can now announce that I have one fully working Tokyo Marui Military AUG (Sorry REMsoft :lol: )

 

You guys are going to think I'm such a tool. You know what it was eventually?...

 

The battery not being charged...Yep, that's right.

 

I bought a new battery for it a while back and my charger had the 'charging' light lit up so I had assumed that the battery was charging, but it didn't have a cutoff feature so had just guessed when it may be charged. When (upon REMsoft's excellent advice) I used a Multimeter to check the voltage of the battery, I found out it wasn't charged and had about .8V in it. Bought a 1000MaH charger for airsoft from Componentshop (cheers Dev) and charged it today. I got home and plugged it in...I was like WTF!? AUGasm :lol:

 

I s'pose the good thing is that a) The gun is working and B ) I now know my way around a V3 mechbox and understand how gears work and pistons fire etc.

 

Brill stuff,

 

Cheers!

 

Nick :)

You'll also now know what to check first ;)

 

great to hear it's working fine now though

 

Definitely Dave. It had caught me out though, seeing as one battery didn't work, I bought another that I hoped would...but even that didn't. Pointed to something else. Devious AEGs!

Well I guess we've learnt something too, always ensure the person you're trying to help has a charged battery :P But honestly really happy you've got it back together and going, enjoy it !
