Impulse not shooting

So today I took my Impulse in the backyard to test shoot it. It was leaking from the LPR barb so I replaced the microline and turned down the LPR pressure (I think, I went lefty-loosey). It stopped leaking from the LPR and started leaking from the macro fitting, so I wrapped the fitting in teflon tape and now the leak is very small and barely noticeable.

Now it won't shoot. I adjusted the LPR, but it would start leaking from the barb when I moved it any higher than I had it. I adjusted the reg and it still won't shoot (I tried everything from 100 psi to 300 psi). I have no idea what to do now. I would GREATLY appreciate some help, fellow MCB'ers!

The LPR is an ANS Jackhammer II

Also, sorry if I gave a bunch of useless info, I just want to get everything covered.

sounds like the eyes are on,if the bolt goes back when you air it up,that should be good for now..kinda sounds like the eyes are on..since the eyes dont react well to fingers, try a ball or a swab and see if it shoots or pull the bolt pin and slide it forward to cover the eye. To turn off the eyes, turn the marker on then push the button once more..

I tried it with the eyes on with a ball in it and with the eyes off and it still didn't fire. I forgot to mention that the bolt didn't pop back when I aired it up.

as long as you have air going past the VA, your hammer assembly should be forced back,check the o-rings by pulling the back cap. but it sounds like no air is getting past the va....unless its sitting in front of me im at a loss ..is it the one we traded for? if so you can sent it to me and i can fix it and have all the parts no matter what it needs for free and ill ship it back next day fixed..

Hammer assembly looks great. O-rings look good and it's lubed up well.

What else could it be? I'm stumped.
