DM4 on/off leak?

At first seems to be leaking from under the solenoid, but when I turn down the LPR all the way, the leak actually intensifies. The only conclusion I can come to is that it must be a bad seal on the on/off knob. I am brand new the the matrix line of markers, so I'm wondering the anyone else here agrees with me. I am almost sure its not coming from the sail o ring or the beer can/top hat.

check the stickies at the top for a diagram on common leaks.

leaks by the solenoid are usually the bolt sail, or outer can orings.
i would replace those first...bolt sail first. then the outer can ones.

if you stilll have a leak, i would pull out the on/off and look at those orings.. replace em, then dont touch the on/off ... i never liked things on the dye guns. never used it anyways...

its usually something simple, but sometimes time consuming to find.
good luck.
hope you get it worked out.

I've read the stickies and I have an o ring rebuild kit on the way. I agree with you 100% that it is time consuming. the fact that the leak intensifies when LPR pressure is decreased is what is leading me to believe thats the culprit. Anyone every experienced this before?

I actually use my on/off on the body bc I have a cheap ASA with no on/off knob.
