Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Have you oiled your gun lately? If not, open the tip and put one or two drops of air tool oil (NOT motor oil!) on the drive pin. If you HAVE oiled your gun properly, you may need to disassemble the tip and clean the "varnish" residue (the glue that's used to hold strips of nails together) from the pin and its channel. Use paint thinner, or scrape the metal parts clean with a fingernail or a piece of hard plastic. DO NOT use a metal scraper, as you may damage the gun and create much worse problems.

This is an easy fix luckily usually it means that the chamber is dirty and all you have to do is open the top front of the gun so that you can see the piston then take a q-tip and clean the area really well sometimes it requires a degreaser and then when you think that you have it clean make sure to lubricate the chamber really well with the paslode lubricant that came with the gun or they sell it right next to where you get the nails. Then the gun should work fine with no problem if this does not work then this means that the piston might be bent and that could turn into a big problem but is still fixable just harder.
Hope that this works for you

Testimonial: "Thanks very much for your help,I took the piston out and sprayed it all out with solvent and relubed everything and it seems to work fine."
It sounds as if the piston o ring is worn. Does the piston drop if you just give it a slight bump with no nails in the magazine, if so that is the problem and would need replaced. Let me know otherwise and I will dig deeper

Yes you need to oil driver blade piston.
You need to check for spark. With no nail or gas in it. Take of main cylinder(4bolts on top, 2 bolts on nose. And then put in battery. And then push upper switch(behind roller at top) and the fan will come on. And then pull the trigger. You should have spark.
