I recently received the menacer cart (thanks Yoshi648) and I am trying to get the gun/sensor to work with it.

I have the sensor plugged into the second port but I am getting no response from it (no cursor, no response to any buttons). The gun has a red led inside that lights up so I know the batteries are making contact and the light comes on when the trigger is pushed so the trigger is working. The sensor does nothing. Are the gun observations normal? Is the sensor supposed to light up? I did check that all 9 wires of the sensor cord are good with no breaks.

Thanks.

Hi, I had the same problem with one I got a while back.
Mine also had some battery corrosion on the terminals which I cleaned off with some baking soda and a bit of water on a Q-tip. I also cleaned the pcb(s) with a pcb cleaner and replaced all the electrolytic capacitors (I think there are 4-5 in the gun).
I may have also re-soldered some components with fresh solder. After doing this the Menacer worked fine. The reciever box seemed ok, I may have replaced the caps in there as well.
