Balls Don’t Shot Fast Enough
Three Indicators Are Flashing
If your launcher does not shoot balls fast enough,
please don’t worry and to check:
If the three Level indicators are flashing, the
protection management system of the
launcher is functioning; here below is the
most common cases:
1. If the batteries almost run out(kindly reminder:
there will be difference in shooting distance due
to the quality and the discharging current of the
batteries).
1. The balls get stuck.
2.If the adapter loose from the plug, normally
the power indicator light is green. If not.
2.Some thing get stuck from the launch
pocket side.

by a new adapter. Then adjust to your preferable
distance level.

launcher and does not spring back into the
tunnel. This case, turn on the launcher
again, and the ball trigger will spring back.
