If you unscrew the bolt there is a small spring towards the back. That may be bent and I've heard of a few doing that. I too am having this issue right now and can't figure it out. All o-rings fine, all springs fine, leaks EVERYWHERE. Did you notice a sound on yours like it was recharging w/air by chance?

Oh and now when I turn it on and turn the eyes off, no air, I can't hear the usual "click" like I used to. Is that a 'noid? You might want to try yours out to see if that's the case on yours too.

did you guys try a fresh battery? that's the first thing I try when I have problems with my marker an don't have a clue what is causing it.

when you don't hear click of the noid it's often a flat battery...

Okay, let's get you guys sorted:

crwilson101:
- Register the marker for warranty via: https://warranty.planeteclipse.com/site/signin
- Clean off any lube on the actual Bolt, bolt guide or bolt bumper and keep these parts dry.
- Check that your Inline Regulator Adjuster Screw is set correctly at 3.5 turns in.
- Check your poppet spring for length and straightness and replace with the spare (included in your Etha Spare parts) if necessary.
- Replace the number 010 o-ring on the front of your firing poppet.

Kingwood:
- Register the marker for warranty via: https://warranty.planeteclipse.com/site/signin
- Check that your Inline Regulator Adjuster Screw is set correctly at 3.5 turns in.
- Describe where the leak that you are experiencing is coming from so that we can best assist you.
- The lack of audible click for the solenoid is completely NORMAL as the solenoid functions using air assistance (when the marker is gassed up).

If we paint the frame of the Etha does that void the warranty?
