Proto rail not shooting

So when I pull the trigger air comes out the solenoid vent instead of actually shooting. What would be the cause of that?

In order check -
- low battery
- board settings specifically dwell are off
- bolt unable to action (check rings, and bolt should "flick test" smoothly
- insufficient pressure to solenoid (don't crank it either though - too high pressure will break PMR bolts, and noid gaskets) You should be firing at 2.5 to 3 turns out
- mechanical failure at solenoid. Unlikely but happens, not very "checkable"

EDIT: mechanical failure is unlikely on a 2007-2010 rail. 2011+ rail has teh pancake solenoid and mechanical failure is... likely
