another rapper problem

alright so ive had my rapper for like a month...so im no expert, i must have done something wrong because i air it up turn the gun on and try to fire...nothing... so i have 2c eyes it shows green led and when a ball is in te chamber the led turns purple, when the trigger is pulled it goes yellow. The gun is getting air through the reg and up into the gun because have pressure...none of the settings were changed, i must have assembled something incorrectly....ive been looking at the stickies and it looks correct...but does anyone have any ideas? if not im going to the local pro shop tomorrow anyway...but any help sooner would be great...let me know if you need any more details

Ok, I'm going to talk through how I approach trouble shooting on ANY marker... Follow the air. Wherever the air path is interrupted, there is your problem.

1: Is there air in the tank?
2: Is that air going into the regulator (did you turn the air on, lol)
3: Is the air coming out of the regulator and into the internals? If you dry fire with eyes off, what does the solenoid do? Does it click like there's no air? Does it sound like it's actuating with air? If so, check the rear transfer slot in the body. That is where the air gets from the solenoid to the ram. The air paths are two-fold, so follow them both. Something isn't working right. If the solenoid isn't actuating at all, even with the air off, it's an electrical issue. If the soleoid sounds the same as when it's firing with the air off, then no air is entering the solenoid, so something is happening with your LPR.

HPA tank--> ASA --> HPR --> Air chamber in the engine.

HPA tank--> ASA --> HPR --> LPR --> Solenoid --> back of the ram, thus moving the bolt forward.

air is going in to the gun through the reg, and into the lpr...i dont have an lpr tester until tomorrow...the solinoid clicks...bolt wont move at all, the bolt seems to be assembled correctly...as far as i know...but for some reason when i screw the engine to the back half of the bolt almost all the way on i hear a small click and then another like 1/2 turn till its tight...

Are the holes on the back of the engine aligned to point down? Check that and the rear transfer slot on the body.

When the solenoid clicks, does it sound like there is air in it (with the air on, of course)?

No the slot is inside the tube of the body, right at the back of the gun.

Just remove the engine from the back and look at the bottom of the back of the tube. You'll see a slot where air passes from the solenoid into the engine. Sometimes stuff gets stuck in there.
