That is what Jason means by a good flow of air with the drivetrain removed

Thank you so much! That really helps. I'll test that out here in a bit when it's not so early. Don't want to wake anyone up. Thanks for the help, guys. I'll post here again when I get some results.

Wait, why does it matter that I'm from the US? :/ Ridiculously expensive shipping costs?

I guess it is the time it takes to get things from UK to USA - guess I could post one, but it would take around 5-7 days...

Oh, well you are just as helpful! How would you do that? Take the one out of your Demon and ship it over?

Also, how do I "breech" the gun when it won't dry fire the extra air out? Is that necessary?

Nah - I actually have two spare solenoids - got one in a large spares kit, and given one at my local shop (when i thought i'd blown my one, but hadn't).

If you can't get it sorted this weekend with that Skype call, PM me your address tomorrow night and i'll get it posted out on Monday morning - SHOULD arrive by next weekend if the good 'ol postal service is up to their usual standards

You could gently undo the HPR slightly and it will hiss it out - same thing I guess. I know the Demon I have doesn't de-gas itself when you purge the air, so it has 1 shot left in the system.

Wow! You have no idea how much I appreciate you even offering to do that. Awesome. I will definitely keep that in mind and will keep you posted. I'll be posting on this thread if I fix anything or find out more about the problem. Thanks.

Yeah, you're right about the de-gassing. Mine always has a bit more air that it lets out through the ASA after I screw the ASA knob off and take my tank off. I'll try the HPR and will let you know. Give me like five minutes and it'll be done.

No probs

I'm getting a lot better with my Demon, even though I haven't used her on a field yet (I am a Scenario player, not sup-air) and the next event I am attending is in September - pretty sure I can fix some of my common problems - but that was with the help of other people on various forums.
Just believe in returning the help, where I can!

James

You can get your Demon to me, and I'll go through it to make sure it's your solenoid. Or you can order a replacement solenoid and I'll get one out to you on Monday.

I'm in Oregon. Where are you?

PM sent.

Service info can be found here;

You bought your Demon second hand, so you're not covered by warranty unfortunately, but there is the info.

Solenoid is in the post and winging it's way from the UK to US of A
Should be with you by the weekend - if both our postal services are behaving!
I would deffo see if your local shop can do repairs to put it in for you - cos it can be fiddly and last thing you want to do is nick the eye cable or solenoid.. unless you feel comfortable doing it yourself?

^ Nicest guy ever! Thanks again, James. I'll most likely just take it up to my local shop. They work on every kind of marker.
