Did you clean and lube the LPR, HPR, rammer and inspect for pinched wires and ensure that all leads were fully seated into the board while it was apart? Do the eyes work? How many turns in is the LPR? Is the trigger set correctly? Is your board set at stock settings? Is the bolt installed correctly? Next time list more information. Saying it shot a few times and stopped working properly does not help anyone diagnose symptoms...

yes, we tried another reg, cleaned everything... no pinch on wire, never touch the trigger ajustement before, i reset the board last nigh and the bolt is installed right on the rammer slot. It's not my first marker and repaired a few but i have no idea with this one.

Check all your barbs to make sure their not clogged or loose. Check your hoses on the solenoid assembly for clogs/pinches/tears. Might want to look into servicing your solenoid and orings inside. Might replace all orings on the rammer also.

I would just go through the gun top to bottom. Eteks are pretty simple. Usually an o-ring or a battery is the culprit to an Etek acting up. Full cleaning, fresh lube and oil, reset gun completely to factory, total o-ring rebuild, and a brand new quality name brand battery. Then you can look into more serious issues being the problem.
