    Default Bumper Boy won't work??

    My sportsman bumper boy won't do a thing. It is less than 4 months old and I haven't even used the first 100 shells. The charging system won't start for some reason. The transmitter acts like it has power but the receiver won't do a thing. The charging light doesn't come on when you plug it in. Any ideas are appreciated.

    Call Aaron at Bumper Boy. He can talk you through almost any problem.
    I borrowed a BB that had no instruction book. Aaron was able to help me program it over the phone and has answered several questions since them.

    Call Aaron at BB. 1-800-729-3822.
    It sound like the charger is failing and they did have a few bad ones. Aaron can get you a new one.

    Ducks & dogs is correct!

    You MUST turn on the transmitter for it to charge. The receiver is charged in the "off" position.

    If that fails, contact Aaron at BB. 1-800-729-3822.
