This happens to my gun too. You probably need to oil the gun once in a while. Here is how you fix it:
Disconnect the gun from the compressor first don't wanna get hurt or anything like that. There is a pin that shoots the nail out well that pin is jammed so what you have to do is push that pin to the original position. using a flat head screwdriver would help you to push that pin back into place. Let me know how that turns out please. I pretty sure that is the problem with your gun. Make sure you lubricate the Nailer once in a while.

Generally, if your nailer is not leaking air, the orings are probably ok. Remove the head and check for stuck headvalve or stuck driver/piston. Make sure that you can press the headvalve into the head with your thumb and that it returns. If your driver/piston is down when you pull the head, remove the cylinder and check for damage to it or the bumper. Some cylinders have an oring or strip of rubber about med section which acts as a check valve causing the piston to return to top. Check for bent driver or broken tip causing driver to jamb. Use silicone lube to assemble. Enjoy

If youve never done anything to it could be a couple things. Have you kept it oiled (about 6-8 drops) before using and again at lunch if construction type work. Check the nails to make sure they move freely in the magazine Check the nail guage for proper size. and what I would do is fire it till it skips disconnect the air from tool and open the front door (for removing jams) and see the driver position. If it is partially down that would be the problem, check the driver for being bent. Lastly remove all nails and just tap the nose on a piece of wood and again check the driver position, if it moves or falls freely then the tool would have to have new rubber which might be a good idea anyway. Get back to me with the model number and I will research and see if they make an o ring kit.

there is an o ring in the trigger valve referred to as a Purple o ring that is probably split. If you can find a air tool center that has them you will save a lot of money versus replacing the trigger valve. Let me know what you are going to do and I will help you with the removal of the valve.
