SFT losing pressure without a leak

At the moment I can usually put about 1-2 pods + hopper of paint through my sft until paint starts slowly dropping off until it just gets stuck in the barrel and the bolt remains forward. I think I've pushed it back during some troubleshooting before and fired a shot, but it stayed forward again. Unfortunately i don't have a reg with a guage, but for the longest time it's been at 275 fps with a short CP reg and the rest of the settings were pretty much inline with Dynasty's from this thread http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=862245 when I got it. I put three cases through it before the issue arose.

If I degas it, wait a week (the next time I usually play), I can get off another pod or two before the same shoot down happens. The solenoid still clicks and I hear a faint puff of air, but I can see the bolt just doesn't move. I also don't hear any leaking.

I think I'm just looking for some reassurance that it's the solenoid so I can just bite the bullet and get a new(er) one because Ive:

clean/greased the set screws
clean/greased the noid,
clean/greased the orings god knows how many times
replaced the hpr
replaced a broken bolt guide oring
unscrewed the tank 1/4 - 2/3 of a turn to not starve it
used fresh batteries
replaced the entire firing assembly from a dynasty shocker

and still no luck..

Whats on it:
Stock shocker body
CP short hpr
old eigen bolt
spring
stock firing can
stock bolt guide
SP on/off
dynasty board (M3 ?)
