09 ego won't shoot

It was leaking from the noid so I replaced the spool shaft. It stopped leaking but now it won't shoot. All i hear is little "puffs" of air coming from the noid when I pull the trigger.

I also just spent $70 on a brand new pilot valve thinking that was the problem because the wires were coming off. However it still has the same problem.

please help.

Maybe try resetting the board back to factory settings? My vicious ego X had the same weird issue but the paint would fly like 2 feet out of the barrel. Just reset the board and the gun started shooting again lol. I dont know how to mess with FSDO so I just took the easy route. Hope that helps

Is the solenoid gunked up? maybe try running a q-tip inside there to pull out old grease or any debree. Then reapply a light layer of grease on the spool shaft? How is your regs? Have they been cleaned and serviced recently?

yes its coming from the solenoid/pilot valve area. Although I haven't exactly pin pointed it to a certain hole.

I cleaned out the solenoid previously because I purchased a new spool shaft in order to stop a leak. The leak stopped but I'm stuck with this problem.

When I replaced the spool shaft I already did everything you said for cleaning it. I cleaned out the reg as well, fresh lube and new o-ring.

Check the condition of the Pneumatic hose and barb, also take out the barb and see if the screen behind the barb is blocked in any way and just clean it a bit
