Ballistic Cart Accessory Troubleshooter

Affected Products:

ME-9486 Ballistic Cart Accessory

Problem/Symptom:
The ME-9486 Ballistic Cart Accessory fails to cock.

PASCO Solution:

Plunger Fails to Stay Down

This happens when the magnet on the plunger unglues from the cartridge. As a workaround, depress the plunger all the way to the bottom and manipulate the magnet so that it is centered around the plunger hole. Once the magnet is positioned correctly, it will latch. Apply pressure to the plunger to improve the adhesion.

For a permanent repair, contact us to obtain a replacement magnet-cartridge assembly and replace according to the instructions below.

Triggering is Intermittent

  1. Trigger only with a rapid side-to-side motion.
  2. Replace the battery with a fresh one.
  3. If this does not fix the problem, please contact us for parts or service. (Replacement instructions are below.)

Ball Catches

  1. Adjust the two aim adjustment thumbscrews on the side of the launcher to center the ball in the barrel.
  2. Make the minimal adjustments necessary to ensure that the ball launches vertically.
