Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
If the motor runs and stays running when you depress the nose then the problem is in either the trigger switch or the solenoid.
If the motor runs for a moment and shuts off with the light blinking I would check your battery. These are very temper mental with voltage, and even if your battery just came off the charger & might work in a drill, it may not have 18v to supply the electronics.
Please note - these are not easy tools to work on, I would recommend bringing it to a qualified repair shop near you.

problem solved.whoever had used the tool must have hit something hard because the drive pin had been pushed back just enough to stop it from cycling.

You have to take the front part of the case off, and you will see the problem. Either the drive belt is broken or the rubber band like springs have broken. Happened to both of mine after about 2 years of use. I ordered the parts through Dewalt and they have some nice diagrams showing the locations and how things go together. Not too hard to do

The link below is where you can download the owners manual. The link is on that page near the top right hand side under the area marked downloads. Page 5 will show you were the switch is located that switches the tool from sequential fire to bump fire.
