Today, I was using the blaster, and all of the sudden, it sounded like the batteries died, went from working fine, to just off.
So then after thst, I charged / put in new batteries, didnt work. All the leads to my battery pack are good and working. No jams, jam door shut, clip is inserted, but doesnt work.

So basicly, Its like pulling the trigger with the blaster off ( it is really on though, but it works like its off )
Any ideas of to what it is / how to fix?

Ok, I opened up the blaster and didn't see anything wrong. I talked to hasbro about it and they said to send in the battery box.

So then after thst, I charged / put in new batteries, didnt work.

Possibly an even better first step would be to double / triple check the batteries to make sure they work.

Ok, I hooked up the battery pack to the motor ( removed the junk on it )
And it works, so no motor problems,
Any ideas where a bad wire would be?

Use a multimeter's connectivity function to find out.

You could try removing the safety switches. One of them could be not quite pressed down all the way or just damaged. Either way it would be a good idea to get rid of all the unnecessary components for testing.
