DM5 Solenoid issue - Need help!

Hi all.

I'm having issues with a DM5, It's leaking heavily past the solenoid and when i pulled it apart, i found a chunk of an o-ring in the larger port the gun body itself. anyway, with all that cleared out, i've put the noid back together, and am having issues with leaks still. the leak seems to be coming from the wire harness end.

the leak stops when i press in the orange button on the solenoid (though there is a small leak down the barrel instead)

the on/off is working correctly
gasket is brand new
noid orings are in tact
lpr seems fine and is set 5 turns out
hpr set to factory
bolt has new orings all round

had a look at it again, and even after replacing orings yet again and doublechecking that the HPR was set correctly (170psi) it still leaks pretty badly.

I also tried it with the LPR shut off (wound all the way in) and that makes no difference.

edit: wound the LPR in really tight and the leak went away. could this mean that the issue is actually with the seal on the LPR??

EDIT 2: Leak disappeared when i replaced the 015 tophat oring again inside the keg.
