Nt solenoid leak

Ok so today I aired up my nt with no leaks, then turned it to practice mode (virtue oled board) with the air on. Once i had started walking the trigger to practice, the gun was just puffing air as normal, but then it dry fired and completely cycled the bolt, this was when i had about 400 psi left in the tank. After the gun dry fired, there was a slight leak coming from the red vent in the solenoid. I have already taken apart and lubed the solenoid, and all gaskets etc, but it still leaks. I have all updated parts and the solenoid is billy wing modded.

Any suggestions, is it venting just because theres not enough pressure, or is it something worse? Anything would be great. Thanks

have you refilled the tank yet??
if you're that low (<400psi) the gun wont function properly. fill the tank and air it up again. i bet you it will work

Yes 400 psi is too low and will most likely vent

Update!
Got air and when I aired it up it was still leaking. I screwed the regulator all the way in and started cycling the solenoid with the eyes off as I increased the pressure and it's all fixed!

means your pressure was too high causing it to vent.. it's time to invest in a pressure tester

Couldn't have been, when I lowered it it was still leaking, I had to completely shut the reg output for it to stop
