please help may have just blown pmr7 solenoid

ok so i bought a pmr 7 needing a new solenoid and put one in myself. then i went to shoot it and it wasnt getting gas and me not knowing the gun well as I just bought it couldnt figure out why. so I adjusted the reg air adjustment all the way out. then i put a tank full of air in it and instantly all i heard was hiss. so i took it to the guy at the paintball place and said i may have blown the solenoid, the solenoid manifold gasket, or any of the o rings in the bolt. if i blew the solenoid i will be really pissed but i may have just installed it wrong as i am a beginner and new to this stuff.

What is your question?

Im pretty sure DM/PM regs are setup where all the way out is max pressure, and all the way in is zero pressure.

I would recommend read the owners manual before doing anything else to the marker.

yes i know that. i had it all the way out. it was a retarded move but i had no idea. i read that manual. thank you though. my question is is it possible that its not a blown solenoid and could be just an o ring or the solenoid gasket... or is the solenoid definitley blown. i know you cant know this for sure without seeing it but you can guess.

also when i screwed in the air it started leaking right away almost like something was already blown. i have a feeling i might have not seated the solenoid and its gasket properly. also the paintball tech said it sounded like it was "behind the trigger"

Replace the easy and cheap stuff first, gasket and orings. If the leak continues then you might have ruined the noid.

Its designed to vent when its over pressurized.. Turn your reg back down to 150psi and air it up again and as long as its installed correctly it should stop leaking.

hard to blow the 'noid as they are set up to vent per post above,you can check by firing the gun without air on and listening to see if the soleniod makes a faint click,never figured out why there is no pressure gauge on these guns

Im extremely new to working on paintball guns so i may have installed it wrong. I just hooked up the solenoid to the board, and put the manifold gasket under the solenoid and made sure it lined up with the screws. Am I missing something?
