P90 Auto only, won't fire semi only auto

Recommended Posts

P90 will only fire in full auto, even in semi it fires full auto.

 

Was in semi when it happened, all of a sudden the gun started firing in auto without the trigger held down, tried switching to safe and it kept going until finally, it stopped.

 

Battery was red hot

 

Any ideas?

Get a second with the same issue and go hambidextrious? 🤣

 

That sounds proper weird though. Assuming fire selector plate fault but I'd just be guessing....

Apparently it could be an issue with cut off lever, edges of the contacts inside the trigger go out wards slightly.

 

Honestly don't know where to start or how to correct.

Replace the cut off lever. It's a common issue.

Cut off lever looks fine? Although I don't know, can you tell by the video? Only thing I can say is the part that hits the contacts is angled upwards and barely touches them.

I have heard on the web of guns firing without trigger being pulled cant remember what caused it  but was not cutoff lever owner resorted to pulling battery before meltdown.

It eventually stopped firing after it happened, plugged battery back in and now it only fires auto. Its seen very little use. Any way for sure to know if its the cutoff, don't want to buy a new one for no reason.

am i the only one seeing the semi contact being bent at a 45° angle?

 

looks almost like the plastic holding it has melted and then it's been hit by something pushing it out of position.

 

afaik that contact you see that is bent if the semi auto contact, every trigger pull activates it and every cycle it gets cut off by the lever, there's then a secondary set of contacts that does full auto if you keep pulling back, what's happening is it's not making contact before being overridden by the full auto contacts.

 

i'd start by looking at getting a replacement trigger pack (whilst feeling grateful that not being a v2/v3 you can just swap the whole lot out real easy). then if it fires auto but not semi with the new one then replace the cutoff lever. although it does look like it might also be worn a tad as it should be cutting off that switch regardless.

 

as a preventative i'd also reccomment a mosfet for future prevention of burning out the contacts

I'm seeing that too, but was too timid to speak up in case it's some sort of Bizarro World gearbox that's meant to do that. :(

I'm going by the similarity to the f2000 box, its a similar idea albeit the trigger pack is mounted differently. But seeing as they both have the same 2 stage trigger i'm guessing they work the same way

Hi, the auto is working again just decided to stop, is that definitely the issue then the angled contact?

Any idea on where to get a trigger pack, etc. 

 

Cheers

It's certainly where i'd be starting to fix it.

 

Cant help on specifically where to buy it, but it shouldnt be too hard to find a complete unit.

 

The auto should be a seperate contact, hence why its still working even when semi is broken, although the same problem that burnt out the semi contact could also have burnt the full auto contacts hence the unreliability of running in full auto.

Okay cheers, turns out its called a p90 wiring harness which contains the trigger, etc.

 

Just finding one in stock is the problem just seems like stores outside of uk.

 

Any recommendations on a mosfet or how to install, never done one before and not very mod savvy.

the world of mosfets is it's own topic, and what i'm using for my setup might not meet with the general forum approval.

 

the mosfet install is a bit funky thanks to the dual contacts, basically you want to wire up the trigger wires from the mosfet to both semi and auto in parallel (so that either contact can trigger it). if you're not that confident with a soldering iron/figuring out circuits it might be better to look for a tech nearby who can do it.

Okay no worries, no local tech from what I can tell either.
