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.

DO NOT USE WD40 . Is The Nailer fireing? If Not check the micro switch by the fan . Make sure it is pushing on the switch.. Otherwise bend it a little

First - the air pressure has to be high enough - check the regulator on the tank to make sure it is delivering in excess of 60-70 psi (which I am sure you have already done).
If you have dry fired these guns (i.e. shot them off with no nails in them while you were lubricating them maybe) the mechanism inside could be damaged. I had that happen to one of my nailers (same brand). That was when I learned not to dry fire them...
Since both of them are not working though I would be more inclined to look at the air supply first.
