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

Below find information on how to adjust for depth, however if you have already made adjustment then check for broken tip on driver blade. The blade is not expensive and available from dewalt service center.
Please note the following from manual:
The depth that the fastener is driven can be adjusted using
the depth adjustment wheel (C) on the side of the tool.
WARNING: To reduce risk of serious injury from
accidental actuation when attempting to adjust depth,
• Remove battery pack.
• Engage contact trip lock-off.
• Avoid contact with trigger during adjustments.
1. To drive the nail shallower, rotate the depth adjustment
wheel (C). There are twelve depth settings, 1 being the
shallowest and 6 being the deepest.
2. To sink a nail deeper, rotate the depth adjustment
wheel (C) to a higher setting.
