Sounds like you have a broken head valve seal. It is located in the cylinder behind the head valve. You will have to get the head valve out. You can do this by hitting the head on a maleable surface like a 2x6 (so as not to damage the head) with the open side down. Not too hard but hard enough to dislodge the valve. Also check to see if the valve oring has been damaged. Sometimes the oring will get caught in between the housing and the valve and that will cause that popping sound with no action. Check your schematic for the tool and look at items 104, 106, 107, 108 for damage. One of these parts is the culprit if everything in the body below is ok as you say. Make sure the the driver is not sideways and damaged along with the cylinder while you are in the tool. Test to make sure the driver slides easily with some drag up and down. There could be one more culprit and that would be in the trigger assembly item 209. Check to make sure that all seals are accounted for and that none are damaged or blocking airflow. If you have any questions please post back.

Testimonial: "Excellent help. I disassembled the head, cleaned and oiled it, and it WORKS! Thanks a bunch for you help. Alan"
SOURCE: We purchased a Porter Cable
Porter-Cable/Delta has an excellent support site, where you can find pdf manuals, part numbers, etc.
Porter-Cable DA250B is an angled finish nailer- it drives 15 gauge brad nails, and won't work with staples. There are some smaller pneumatic tools that can drive both brads or staples, they are typically the smaller 18 gauge fasteners.
If you have the correct 15 gauge angled nails, the DA250B manual has nice pictures showing how to insert them.

Usually when the driver is slightly bent, it will not retract. Easy to check. Remove the head and pull out the cylinder and driver together. Adjust the driver or replace as needed.
