What does it mean when my gun wont fire?

before the tank you know how you can pull the slider back and press the trigger and the slider goes back forward,
and than after you put the CO2 on you pull the slider back and press the trigger its suppose to fire?
Well mine doesnt fire when i have the tank on, it just acts as if no tank is attached on it.

i tried with 2 different tanks on full and still the same thing

This is from my personal experience but here i will go..........
Try lubing your gun with paintball marker lube/oil whatever. Put some on the asa(where you attach your co2 tank). Maybe you should thake your gun apart and clean every single part. What kind of gun do you have. If the company that made your gun has a website, go there and find their number and call them and ask for servive on your marker. Sometimes if the company is good, they might just ship you a new marker. Try going to your local field and ask them some questions about your makrer and how they or you could fix it. If nothing eles works, then just go out and buy another marker. iliveforthis99 will probably chime in and say something smarter than me but he might be more helpful.

Ok so when the tank is on and you pull the trigger does the bolt go forward or is it locked up in the cocked position? If the bolt is going forward when you pull the trigger i'd say your tanks are either empty or to low to do anything. To echo thunder what gun do you have?

alright, my friend has a spyder 2000 compact and that same thing happened to him. so i just let him use one of my Co2 tanks and worked pretty good. also i've noticed that kinda cheap paint doesn't work very well in this gun.

Just because that happened doesn't mean the tanks have enough gas to actually cycle the gun. When was the last time you had the tanks filled? Did you use them at all after that? Only other thing i can think of at the moment would be there might be a problem with the valve.

If your Co2 tank is full, then maybe try to get another Co2 tank. And maybe a different size.

Try somebodys Co2 tank that is newer than yours. If that doens't work, then go to your local field owner or faculity and ask hem or try to get them to help. Or maybe just trade that gun in for a newer one, or better one maybe. Or just buy a brand new gun.
