IF you can locate the leak that would help. There are not many places on the TM-7 that can cause a leak.. Also what kinda of leak is it?? Quiet/Slow or Loud/Fast..

Remember that you can take off the outside shell and air up the marker as normal, that should help you locate where the air is leaking from.

If it's coming out of the barrel then focus on the poppet to start with, make sure you have a fresh battery and try dry firing it without air to make sure the solenoid is clicking so it can reset itself. Take out the poppet and lube it. See if either of those help first.

Solenoid/Poppet might need to be reset, so try what I said to reset the solenoid and also screw the rear velocity adjuster all the way in to lock in the poppet. If it airs up and holds, turn the rear adjuster about 1.5 turns out and then give it a try.

Hmmm shouldn't make any difference either way unless the o-ring on the remote line is bad and if so it would leak out of the regulator area. Try locking in the poppet first (tighten the rear adjuster all the way in), dry fire it a couple times (no air, eyes off) to make sure the solenoid is in place, then turn on the remote line air. If it's leaking down the barrel, switch back to the tank directly attached and see if it does the same again.
