Okay you could have a couple problems there are power bands that retract the driver. They are under the front cover. Also the is a part called a profile and driver that actually drives the driver and pushing the nail into the wood. I had one that seemed to work OK but wouldn't drive completely as you describe and I had to replace the profile and driver. If you are uncomfortable with this type of repair I would suggest taking it to a DeWalt store and having them fix it. They have a max repair rate and will replace everything that is wrong including batterys if need be for one price. But before you attempt any repairs I would go to the DeWalt website and get a copy of the breakdown first. Good luck and let me know.

Why wont my hatachi nail gun shoot 1 3/16 nail all the time


Has the tool been lubricated properly to Hitachi's recommendation? Is the airline pressure running about 90-100 psi? If not try giving it more pressure. Sometimes the compressor may have too smaller receiver (Tank) for what you are trying to use it for, leaving the tool unable to return the piston/driver to top dead centre.

Since TV's don't shoot nails, I'm assuming your post is mis-matched somehow. Can you post again, with some more information and please specify what device you are asking about, a TV or a nail gun. Thanks.

It is shooting 2 brad nails at a time - is there some type of adjustment?


the first thing that i look at when a gun is double shooting is the nails. if i have the right nails then i check the driver( part of the gun that hits the nail) if the driver is fine( not bent or broken or worn) then your nose( chamber that holds the nail right before being shot out) is worn or broken. either way to answer your question , no , double shooting is not only dangerous but a complete waste of time, ps rate , tks

Porter cable fc350a frame nailer shoots just air


Could be a couple things, first are you using the right nails in the gun e.g. collation and degree. Second do the nails move freely in the magazine and how is the pusher spring on the nail does it have enough pressure. Then I would unplug from air remove all the nails andjust tap the nose on a piece of wood and does the driver drop? If so the piston Oring is worn and needs replaced, but if you do that I would recommend replacing all the rubber. Let me know and I would need the exact model number to come up with parts.
