    If you figure out the problem please post it. There are several on here that have the same problem. I have an old 2/4 shooter receiver with the exact same problem and know of at least two other people with receivers that function exactly the same.

    Don't know if you are referring to the antenna connection on the receiver or the Transmitter. I have had to have my Transmitter Antenna re-soldered a couple of times. Its fairly prone to breaking so you could try that if you haven't already

    I will assume that the battery charge is significant? When I have had that problem it has always been the battery in the unit or the transmitter.

    Hmmm. Having an issue with one of mine too. They shoot fine but I can not get the distance from transmitter to receiver extended anymore. In fact it won't work much beyond fifty yards. My other is fine. Battery charges. And new battery in receiver.

    Any thoughts?

    Have changed the battery and antenna. Resoldered the antenna joint on the inside.
    Any one have ideas? I don't want to use my tri-tronics on it to make it work at a longer distance if I can fit the problem.
    Did you change the batteries inside the receiver?

    Yes, put a new battery in it and it still didn't work right. I then took one out of the one that works right and put it in to make sure the new battery was good
    and it's still not working right.

    Sounds like whatever makes the receiver "receive" isn't working. Don't know what it is but it happens with BB's, collars and winger receivers too. Maybe someone who works on electronics, computers can fix it. Especially if you could show them the working unit and the non working unit.

    Uggggg. I know whats wrong but it is sometimes difficult for me to explain this. The connection to the antenna inside the transmitter has come loose, and is making to much of a ground inside the transmitter. You may need to open the transmitter, unscrew the back, on the inside of the box, there is a screw that holds the antenna holder to the case.Tighten that screw part on the antenna. There should be a ribbon piece of metal that grounds the antenna. It needs to get gently pried away from the screw part I mentioned above. The little ribbon gets to close to things as we pick up, or screw on and off, the antenna.

    I hope that makes a little sense.....

    If the transmitter works with one BB perfectly but not the other one. Than could it possibly be the same problem inside the receiver?
