Bt200 only exhausts

Here is a parts diagram. You may want to remove the four, top allen screws and pull off the head. Turn it upside down and with your thumbs push on the head valve assembly (items 9 and 10) and make sure it goes up and down freely. It is spring loaded (item 8). If it gets stuck it will blow air out the exhaust. Also a bad seal between it and the cylinder will cause the same thing.

When reinstalling the head assembly I push down from the middle of the head as evenly as possible to compress the head valve without cocking it and having it stick. I then hold the head with one hand while putting the screws back in with another. I use t handle allen wrenches. Also always lightly grease (or coat with air tool oil) any new o-rings you install. You don't want to run them dry. I use a tub of white lithium grease because I do so many. If you knew this already I apologize but it may help others that read this.

I have a BT200 that will shoot a nail once or twice then will not fire the nail.

It sounds like you have very low air pressure or volume of air. Try increasing the compressor air pressure. If you have an in line filter check that..

I have a Bostitch BT200 that is dry firing. It seems that the "hammer" is not retracting after it fires a nail. I have to push it back manually and even then it seems to dry fire a few times before a nail...

The check seal is what causes the piston to retract. Remove cylinder and examine check seal. It is a small band that covers a series of holes and should fit snuggly around cylinder. Other factors that have effect on piston retraction are, split/cracked cylinder, bent driver and lack of lubrication. This gun is tricky to rebuild. Make shure that all the parts in the head are placed correctly. The kit does contain all the parts that you need. Good luck

Bostitch Nail Gun wont release and shoot nail

I had purchased a bostitch bt200 and am just now trying to use and after loading the nails 18ga 2" brads made by bostitch connecting to a small compresor that had 20 psi I pushed the nailer flush with the board and pulled the trigger and had no nails ejected. Is there something else I needed to do, manual was read.

My bostitch bt200 recently will not shoot 2 inch nails, it seems to be to tight inside the holder

I have a bostich that takes only the "ay" nails, the "ax" nails won't fit and I think there is one other size, all wire gauge sizes, the "ay" are the smallest. Check it out.

The driver doesn't return after firing. it is a porter cable brad nailer BN200

This is pretty common with brad nailers

Remove the brads from your gun - disconnect from the air supply
On the front of your gun is a latch - open it
Check the sliding surface for build up of dirt or small pieces of metal from the brads.
Once clean polish the surface with a fine steel wool or a small brass brush
Reassemble with a drop of machine oil on the sliding surface
Oil your gun as you normally would
Using a piece of soft wood dry fire the gun 10 or so times to ensure that the dents it is making in the wood are all pretty even
Reload and nail something

I have a Bostitich brad nailer model BT200 it's 7 years old

The nailer needs some lubrication. The rubber gaskets are not riding in the shafts correctly. I would have this rebuilt and lubricated. It should be used one every few months to spread the oil around and keep the rubber parts oiled. Check with your local lumber yard. If they deal with Bostitch, you may be able to get a "rebuild" for the purchase of a box of nails. I was able to get a couple of guns overhauled this way during the local "Bostitch days".
